"Ollie flip with a twist. Do try this at home."
This is Hensley at the NSA Del Mar Skate Fair from February 1990. He placed third in the contest with that Tony Hawk guy winning both street and vert. Tom Knox took second. This was the first pro contest for a lot of guys, including Ed Templeton, Ron Chatman and Jeremy Klien. Kevin Wilkins laments in the article that contest was held near the location of the demolished Del Mar Skate Ranch.
In addition to the A1 Meats, Natas and H - Street stickers on Hensley's board, there is also a sticker for Mario Rubalcaba's band the Committed.
Grant Brittain took the photo.
