DEATHWISH - DEATHSPRAY BRAINS DECK - 8.0
Deathwish skateboards was started by Baker riders Erik Ellington and Jim Greco in 2008 as a company to run alongside Baker with a different team and rider direction. One of the first team riders was Lizard King who definitely has a Deathwish. Deathwish skateboard decks and clothing can be identified by its spray-painted font and gang logo symbol.
Deathwish draws its inspiration from 70s and 80s cult movies and kitsch magazine cover artwork. The brand name is inspired by vigilante justice cult film series Death Wish starring Charles Bronson. The Deathwish logo is the cross symbol sported by the Street Punk Gang in the movie Death Wish 3.
Today Deathwish has one of the gnarliest squads in skateboarding with the likes of Jamie Foy, Pedro Delfino and Jake Hayes.
