You know when you hear people talk about “the man” and you’re all like, “…who’s the man?” Well, if they’re talking about skateboarding, then they’re usually talking about Andrew Reynolds.
So don’t be shy, ask him some questions… this may be your only shot…
While you’re here, check out Andrew Reynolds in our Altamont Industry Profile video!
Styles change… but style doesn’t. And the people pulling the strings over at Altamont know that very well.
In this installment of our Industry profiles, Andrew Reynolds and Justin Regan give you an insight into what Altamont is all about.

I really wish Bootleg Skateboards would have lasted longer so we could have seen more Baker Bootleg videos. The Baker Bootleg and Baker2g videos remind me of how raw skateboard is and why we do it, no need for fancy intros or even legit filming, these videos were just about hanging with the homies and having a good time. Check out Andrew’s part and see him killing it before he became The Boss.
In anticipation of Thrasher’s “Back to the Berg” contest (5/30/09), let’s reminisce the history of the huge San Francisco 4-stair.
Back in 1991, Mark Gonzales ollied Wallenberg in Blind’s Video Days. That’s 18 years ago for all you math wizards. The stairs became a staple in skate videos throughout the early-mid 90s, with most people opting to skate the set sideways and use the stairs as ledges.
Since then, a lot of big names have landed their signature tricks down it. Andrew Reynolds frontside flipped and backside flipped it, and Chris Cole 360 flipped it. In 2004, Thrasher held a contest called “High Noon at the Big Four” where lots of hammers went down, including Reynolds’ frontside flip.
Here’s a list of notable tricks done down Wallenberg:
- Mark Gonzales – ollie (1991)
- Diego Bucchieri – backside 180 ollie (1998)
- Danny Gonzalez – kickflip melon (1999)
- Frank Gerwer – kickflip (2002)
- Tony Manfre – switch ollie (2002)
- Tony Manfre – switch frontside 180 (2003)
- Steve Nesser – pop shove-it (2004)
- Darrell Stanton – switch backside 180 ollie (2004)
- Andrew Reynolds – frontside 180 kickflip (2004)
- Lindsey Robertson – heelflip (2004)
- Chris Cole – 360 Flip (2005)
- Jeremy Reeves – pop shove-it melon (2007)
- Andrew Reynolds – backside 180 kickflip (2007
Which tricks do you want to see go down the Wallenberg four?
The Emerica Reynolds Cruisers have arrived. Active Pro Andrew Reynolds introduces his 6th shoe on Emerica footwear. It has a bit more of a casual look with less padding around the heel & tongue but still has that great feel you loved about the Reynolds Lights or Reynolds 3’s. It’s made with a vulcanized gum sole, suede or canvas upper, thin padded tongue & collar and comes equipped with Sole Tech’s patent STI Foam insoles. Take it from Andrew…
How sick is Andrews Backyard? I honestly can say that these are my favorite Emerica shoes to date. If you like minimalistic shoes or like any of the old Reynolds, you should pick a pair up. We have 4 colors & they are priced under $60.
