Founded in 1999 by ex-Birdhouse pro and living legend Andrew Reynolds, Baker Skateboards has long been the destination of choice for the rawest and most progressive street skaters in the world.
It came as no surprise to anyone that when Tony Hawk’s eldest son Riley Hawk came onto the sponsorship market that Baker skateboards were quick to sign him up to their roster. Since joining Baker, Riley has more than proved to be a force in his own right and has gone on to carve out a name for himself as being one of the most well-rounded and gnarly pros on the team.
This Riley Hawk ‘Halftone’ pro deck comes in at a slim 7.75” in width, making it perfect for smaller skaters and for those looking for a deck well suited to technical skating. With a fully dipped white board, complete with white edges, and a half tone graphic recalling the punk aesthetic that so inspired the look of the brand, this is no brainer for street skating Baker fans. This deck also comes with a steeper than average concave meaning better board feel and control for those tech/rail heads amongst you.

Since turning pro in 2014, Riley Hawk has been on mission, racking up numerous ads for his sponsors, a full interview for Thrasher magazine and the end section in Lakai Footwear’s 2017 release ‘The Flare’, appearing alongside his father Tony Hawk who also recently signed to Lakai.
Baker Skateboards are distributed in the UK by Sheffield-based Slugger Distribution, which is co-owned by close friend of the brand, Sex skateboards owner and original Pissdrunx member Louis Slater.
