Barker Barrett #5.

The OG East Coast powerhouse grinds a Jersey barrier.

Barker has ridden for a lot of companies over the years, including Shut, Planet Earth, Zoo York, Creature, and Scarecrow. I know that's not all of them and I'm not going to try to count guest boards. Barker helped pioneer technical street and mini ramp skateboarding in the 1990s. It's always a treat to see new footage or photos of him.

The picture is by Evan Klanfer.

This guy rules. I still remember a Shut demo in Saratoga where he was skating the mini and Mike Kepper was on the deck doing play by play and informing the crowd that Barker was skating switch. It was crazy. So ahead of time.
