"Meat - plain up. Meat only. No cheese or lettuce or anything, thank you very much."
While Stacey Peralta was busy tanking his amateurs' street parts in order to not make his veteran pros look so bad, H-Street came out of absolutely nowhere and shook the Earth... demonstrating that a small company with a dirt-cheap video showcasing incredible skating could make any brand a major player. The 90's began here and Hensley led the charge.
I think Matt's importance is slightly underestimated these days as he (along with a few others) represent the real link from Natas and Gonz to everybody else. Shackle Me Not was the wake-up call... but by the time Hocus Pokus came out, Hens was straight-up THAT dude. On some superhero-with-a-chain-wallet steez.
And I realize I'm in the minority here but I always liked the Hensley feet graphics (both the regular and especially kingsize) more than his stained glass joint. Sorry.
stoked on this pic.
