The entire skateboarding world suffered another massive blow yesterday, with the passing of North East legend, skateboard video maker, graphic designer, friend, father and flip technician, Dean “Bod” Brodrick.

Through the mid 90′s Bod could regularly be found in the pages of RAD and Sidewalk, boggling minds with a variety of ultra tech flip variations. Over the years his love for the North East scene has resulted in the creation of several infamous “Joybus” scene videos which helped shed much needed light on a lot of emerging talent from the area, and his graphic design work has seen him produce board graphics and artwork for companies such as Girl, Chocolate, Real, Death, Ekta, Stereo, Mischief, Native, and most recently, Fabric.

Our condolances and thoughts are with all of Bod’s family and friends, as well as the entire North East scene.

RIP mate.
