Skateboarding[edit]

Leo Baker is a professional skateboarder. Baker began skateboarding at the age of 5, but only started focusing on it at the age of 11.[3] Baker lists their proudest moment as the first time they landed a kickflip.[4] Baker is said to be one of the best skaters in the world.[5]

In the March 2007 edition of The Skateboard Mag, Baker is featured in 2 photo sequences showing them perform a 360 flip and a hardflip down 8 stairs. This was part of the magazine's article "Killer Kids."[6]

In 2006, Baker placed first in street competitions at both the Canadian Open in Toronto and the Slam City Jam in Calgary.[7]

Now Baker is sponsored by Glue Skateboards, Pawn Shop Skate, Bones, and Nike SB.

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

In 2016, Baker won the Street League Skateboarding Super Crown World Championship.[8]

In 2017, Baker was the only skateboarder to be nominated for an ESPY Award in the "Best Female Action Sports Athlete" category.[8]

Baker is shown briefly on the Tampa Am 08 DVD.

They were 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."[9]
