Deathwish Skateboard Decks, Wheels and Apparel – UK Shop
Deathwish Skateboards is a brand inspired by 70’s and 80’s cult movies and brash magazine artwork. The brand name was inspired by Charles Bronson’s film series “Death Wish”.
Founded by pro skateboarders Jim Greco and Erik Ellington in 2008, Deathwish was their way of continuing living the dream and supporting their skater friends. Currently, the brand is based and distributed by BakerBoys Distribution together with sister company Baker Skateboards, and other brands such as Shake Junt and Heroin Skateboards.
Since its inception, the brand continues to drive skateboarding in the right direction with the help of some of the world’s best skaters. Together, they produce consistent videos filmed in various locations around the globe donning the latest apparel and riding Deathwish skateboards, while showing off their skills and favourite tricks. A continuous line-up of decks, clothing and accessories each year keep the company and their crew busy.
Currently, the Deathwish team riders include the founders, Brian "Slash" Hansen, Mike "Lizard King" Plumb, Jon Dickson, Neen Williams a.k.a. “King of Heelflips”, Taylor Kirby, Jake Hayes, Erick Valdez and Jamie Foy.
King of the Road Season 2 – Deathwish participated in the King of the Road and won third place. Team riders Jon Dickson won the “Midnight Cowboy– Best Trick in a Public Restroom” award with a ‘frontside noseslide line’; and Jamie Foy won “The Stranger – Best Trick Using the Mannequin Hand” award with a ‘kinker grind grab', and he also earned his Pro spot on Deathwish during the season finale.
Tribute Deck for Antwuan Dixon – In June 2014, the brand released a tribute deck for Antwuan Dixon (former team rider) with the aim to help him rebuild his life after prison time. Each deck included a letter explaining Dixon’s situation and his contribution to the brand, and envelopes with his prison address in order for fans to reach out to him.
