London-based boy wonder Awadh won the Hawk European Tour Skateboarding competition in 2007 and has since been tearing through the skies on his Superdead board. A new recruit to the UK Autobahn flow team, he’s constantly pushing his trade and building on his already made name. On a particularly sunny day, photographer and filmmaker Klaus Thymann chased the speed skater with a camera as he flew into the air and came down with a 9.9 landing. If Team GB had a skateboarding strand to speak of, our money would be on Awadh.
