Riky Barnes #6.
"The guy with the spiked black hair and Levi's. Yep, that's him. He rides and projects his ideas of what he wants to do with his skateboard while navigating it. He just won a contest in Arizona, a banked street type, which is his main thing, contest-wise. Hellbow lists high on his places to visit regularly, along with pools, various plywood structures, and the streets of his native Huntington Beach and Newport Beach zone.
He likes Duane Peters, Chimp, and music of the original hardcore fashion. Anything else is unknown, except to friends John Lucero, Tony Chiala, Mike Lohrman, Willi, and E.T.
He's good at this skateboarding thing. He has a Levi jacket. Ricky Barnes is on his way."

This was Riky's Check Out in Transworld from 1989. He rode for Lucero, Independent, and Santa Cruz Speed Wheels. He stuck with the changes from Lucero to Black Label and is currently on the Emergency Division. Riky was also on Spitfire.
Thanks to the Black Label for the link. Let me know if I get anything wrong.
The photo is by Marty "Jinx" Jimenez. I think he used Man Child as an alias.
