Barker Barrett #4.

Scratch Acid.

Barker is an OG East Coaster with ridiculous board control on curbs and mini ramps. He has ridden for Shut, Planet Earth, Zoo York, Creature, Scarecrow, and probably a few more I'm forgetting over the years. Lifeblood Skateboards just hooked him up on their Lifers Division.

This is the 1,500 post on Vert Is Dead. Another meaningless milestone.

Academy award winning director Spike Jonze snapped the photo.

I had the pleasure of watching this guy skate a mini back in 1993. It wasn't a demo; he and a couple other pros just showed up to the local indoor park in Newburgh. So sick, but it was very unappreciated by lots of people at the skatepark, because it was all about slow and low skate tricks.

That would have been sick to seem him skate the mini spine at Newburgh.

I got to see him skate a mini up in Saratoga. I just remember Mike Kepper standing on the deck kind of narrating to us what we were witnessing, like, "he's skating switch people!" I think this was like 90.
