He now lives in Montreal and wont stop skating and taking care of the Pipe . . . after all, he is the original caretaker!

He lived in Vancouver, B.C. for many years, but now resides in MTL, the city he loves. From intimate sessions with Duane Peters to demos with Tony Hawk in stadiums, he has always remained true to his essence and artform, paid or not paid. Hes had many pro models, but Barry Walsh is simply a skateboard bomber.
