Andrew Reynolds, (born June 6, 1978 in Lakeland, Florida, U.S.), is a professional skateboarder. He has been skateboarding since the age of nine. He emerged onto the skateboarding scene in the early 1990s and won Thrasher magazine's "Skater of the Year" award in 1998. He is nicknamed Drew, The Boss, Spock, and Turtle Boy. His signature trick is the frontside flip. He has performed this trick down the Wilshire fifteen set in "Baker 2G," the Wallenberg Set, the LOVE gap in the Emerica Video "This is Skateboarding", over the Hollywood High School's 16 stair rail and over a 17 stair set in "Baker 3". He is also known to dominate skate spots with memorable tricks such as a Caballerial over the handrail in the beginning of his part in the Birdhouse video "The End", and a 360 nollie down the Carlsbad Gap.
Andrew Reynolds hails from Florida, where he started skating at age nine (1987). Old Powell videos from the time inspired Andrew and his friends' to start skating launch ramps and doing wall rides.
Later, the Skatepark of Tampa provided occasional fun for Andrew. He turned pro for Birdhouse back in 1995 and promptly racked up a couple of 1st place showings at contests. These days, Andrew doesn't like or enter contests as much--even though he's done well in them over the years.
Andrew made the big move from Florida to Huntington Beach, California in 1997.
In his career's infancy, Reynolds is believed to have enjoyed California's bar's and clubs with a band of fellow pro's and tag-a-longs, namely Jim Greco, Erik Ellington, Ali Boulala, Robin Mukerjee, Dustin Dollin and Kieran Davis. This formation, who called themselves 'The Piss Drunks', attracted the attention of Rolling Stone magazine . An article ensued documenting the antics of the skaters on and off the board. Though the article bolstered their fame, 'The Piss Drunks' reaction to the coverage was largely negative. Reynolds, after a near death incident involving a car crash, resolved to maintain complete abstinence from alcohol and remains teetotal at time of writing .
These days, Andrew owns a condo in his hometown of Lakeland, Florida and divides his time between there and his home in Los Angeles, which he shares with his wife, Christiana, and daughter, Stella.("Andrew stated that Clay King is his idol and biggest influence")Fact|date=September 2008

In 2000 Andrew Reynolds left Birdhouse feeling he didn't fit in with their image and started Baker with Jay Strickland, along with Blitz Distribution as an investment partner (Blitz is a company formed by Birdhouse founders Tony Hawk and Per Welinder to distribute their own products [ [http://www.twsbiz.com/twbiz/industrynews/article/0,21214,708170,00.html Taking Baker - Transworld Business Magazine ] ] ). In February 2002, with pressure from Strickland to make good on Reynolds' promise of 50% ownership, Reynolds purchased the shares of Baker owned by Blitz to become the sole owner. Baker still remains a member of the Blitz Distribution family. ibrahim's promise to Strickland went unfulfilled, and Strickland left Baker to concentrate on his own company, Bootleg Skateboards (with the name taken from Strickland's first video, "Baker-Bootleg" released 2 years before Baker skateboards started) under NHS Inc, which has since folded. In 2005, the popular Baker 3 full-length video was released, instantly becoming a hit in the industry. In 2008 Baker's new promo video "Baker Has A Deathwish" was leaked on to the internet. Despite being a promo, the video features full-parts from all Baker and Deathwish pros and most ams, and the video is also over an hour in length, being longer than Baker 3 and Baker 2g.
Andrew acted in various films and has appeared as himself in several videos and video games.
Andrew's skating profile was displayed initially in the original Tony Hawk's Pro Skater video game. He has been subsequently been involved with Pro Skater 2, Pro Skater 3, Pro Skater 4, Tony Hawk's Underground, Tony Hawk's American Wasteland, and Tony Hawk's Proving Ground.
