Superdead is the latest British board brand out of the house of TwoDist, which also distributes brands such as Modus Bearings, Antiz Skateboards and iPath. The company released its debut team ad in June 2010 with an initial team line-up of Andy Scott, Eddie Belvedere, Harry Lintell, Josh Parr, Chris Barrett and Ben Rowles, and there was also a distinctive first line of graphics. A couple of great web promos followed soon after.
Also in 2010, Superdead released Something for the Weekend, a short film from its first weekend of demos at Blackpool’s Rampcity and Castleford’s Subvert skatepark, featuring the full team plus Awadh Mohammed and Nick Remon. Something for the Weekend also saw the first Superdead appearance of new flow rider Denis Lynn.
On the weekend of the royal wedding in 2011, Barrett, Lynn, Scott and Belvedere travelled to Scotland for the War Of The Thistles event and to skate some rugged Scottish street – the resultant Royal Shredding film made for great viewing. Superdead was also one of the teams which competed at the 2011 Vans Downtown Showdown in London – best performer on the Superdead obstacle, which featured a hefty hubba, a quarter at one end and a big bank, was Nassim Guammaz.
Lynn graduated to the full team in 2012, where he joined former Blind rider Chris Oliver, who was welcomed to the team with an amazing edit filmed at the jagged DIY concrete jungle of north London’s Tottenham Hale. The current squad also features Czech rider Jirka ‘George’ Bulin and Mark ‘T-Bag’ Murray.
