With a skateboarding legacy that stretches back to the 1980s, Ray Barbee has been doing things right for decades. From the time Barbee broke out on the scene in the ’88 Powell-Peralta classic, “Public Domain” street skating would never be the same. Style matters and Barbee has it to spare. Ray has also been able to translate the creative energy he pours into his skating into other endeavors as well; on a guitar he is as smooth as he is on a board. Pushing into his third decade on board, Barbee is as smooth as ever: a no-comply, a 360 flip or a solid frontside heel, if Ray’s doing it, it’s sure to come out classic.
