Lacey Baker (born November 24, 1991) is an American professional skateboarder from Covina, California, who primarily focuses on "goofy-footed" street tricks.

Skateboarding[edit]

Lacey Baker is a part of a small group of professional female skaters. She began skateboarding at the age of 5, but she only started focusing on it at the age of 11.[1] Baker lists her proudest moment as the first time she landed a kickflip.[2] Baker is said to be one of the best female skaters in the world.[citation needed]

In the March 2007 edition of The Skateboard Mag, Baker is featured in 2 photo sequences showing her perform a 360 flip and a hardflip down 8 stairs. This was part of the magazine's article "Killer Kids."[3]

In 2006, Baker placed first in street competitions at both the Canadian Open in Toronto and the Slam City Jam in Calgary.[4]

Now she's sponsored by Billabong, Element Skateboards, Independent Truck Company, Utility Board Shop, ÉS Footwear and Bones Bearings.

She is the daughter of guitarist Marshall Rohner (who played for The Cruzados, T.S.O.L., and Dino's Revenge).

Skateboard videos[edit]

Baker is shown briefly on the Tampa Am 08 DVD.

She was also on Fuel T.V.'s, " The Captain & Casey Show" in late 08 for a couple of tricks.

Baker's first full part, entitled "Bombshell," was released (in April 2013) on the video section of Thrasher Magazine's website, on which Thrasher described Baker's part as "one of the best female street/tech parts [they've] seen."[5]
