Vans brought to life the creative concepts of four of the earlier selected skateboard brands and their idea for the ultimate obstacle - each inspiredshow more by Hamburg’s naughty and nautical past and present. The designs by Cliché, Element Europe, Death Skateboards and Antiz were realised by famous ramp builder Andreas “Schützi” Schützenberger of IOU Ramps and installed on the Reeperbahn to be skated for one day only.
Team Death consists of Dan Cates, Adam Moss, Mark Nicolson and Mark "Radman"Radden.
Team Manager Dan Cates christened the Death Skateboards Obstacle the 'The Spot Pirate' as the team pillaged some of their favourite skate spots from around the Europe and turned them into something new. Barcelona, Valencia, Grand Canary, Liverpool and St. Albans were all part of this amazing amalgamation. After an hour of fierce battle, it was Frenchman Sam Partaix who was crowned the conqueror of the Death Skateboards obstacle.show less
