Henry Gutierrez.

Fork Boy.

Henry is from Virginia Beach and part of a crew that all sport fork burn scars. This includes other pro skateboarders Mike Crescini, Allen Midgett, Sergie Ventura, Andy Howell, and Mike Conroy. I'm not sure who all in that group has the fork burn, but all are from the same area. I remember back in the day thinking how gnarly that would be when tattoos or body modifications weren't as common as they are today. It looks like he is part of the team at John "Tex" Gibson's Embassy Skateboards. Henry learned 540's when he was 41.

The man behind the camera was Grant Brittain.
