From the second he stared through Hubba Hideout in Welcome to Hell (1996), Brian Anderson’s imprint on skating has been as savage as it is sweet. There’s an unmistakable primal grace to his movement on a skateboard—the intersection of creativity and intensity. BA’s flair translates to his art, clothing design, activism, and accolades, including winning the World Cup of Skateboarding in Germany and Thrasher Magazine’s SOTY in 1999. In 2016, Anderson became the first recognized openly gay skateboarder, announcing so in a VICE Sports documentary that elevated him to a community icon.
