Sammy Baca.

Sin City.

Sammy rode for Pig when the company expanded from just wheels to wood as well. After deck production was ceased, he joined up with the Baker crew. At one point when he was still an am for Baker, he bailed on one of their tours to go on a tour of South America with Creature. I think Sammy's logic was that if Darren Navarrette asked you to go along for the ride, that you went. Andrew Reynolds handled this with a relaxed attitude and said that Sammy's first pro model with Baker would be his name in the Creature font. A little while later, Sammy got his board with his name on it. And it was in the Creature font.
