Matt Hensley

Matt Hensley met Mike Ternasky at the Visalia Skate Camp in 1987. Brennand Schoeffel had asked Mike if Matt could join him as a Skate Camp instructor.

Mike promptly saw Matt’s skateboarding and gave him with a box of H-Street decks, then called Tony Magnusson to inform him that the future of H-Street had arrived. By the time Matt’s footage in Shackle Me Not dropped two years later, a new generation of skateboarder’s would agree.

Shortly thereafter, graphics were designed by Scott Obradovich in which would become one of the best selling boards of all time, the classic Street Swinger. This graphic has been painstakingly restored to its original glory and is one of the most sought after collector edition re-issues, available as an original re-issue for the first time in 2016.
