Brian Anderson #6.

The Street Pirate.

Brian is from Groton, Connecticut. He was working as a line cook in a kitchen, but decided to give the skateboard thing one last try and the world is a better place as a result. A lot of his sponsor me tape was used in Welcome To Hell. Brian would later turn pro for Toy Machine and won Thrasher's Skater Of The Year award in 1999. He switched to Girl in 2002. Brian left Girl in 2013 to start his own company called 3D. That came to an end in 2016 and BA is supposedly riding for Anti-Hero now. His feet have been sponsored by Sheep, Axion, Savier, and Nike over the years. Brian recently announced that he is gay. He's pretty much one of the best skateboarders ever.

Brian is awesome and his recent flurry of instagram posts shows he's in a good place now that he feels free to express himself to the skate community. Also Frank Gewer dancing in a Lady Gaga top is something special.

Gerwer is a champ. The Skateboard Mag had their photo issue last year (maybe two years ago) and they had a photo of Frank and his dog. They were just chilling. Why they did not use that for the cover is beyond me.
