Henry Sanchez #3.

Neva Forget.

Henry was the third pro on Real when Tommy Guerrero and Jim Thiebaud started the company back in 1990. He wasn't on the team for long and soon switched over to Blind. In 1992, he split a short format video with Tim Gavin called Tim & Henry's Pack of Lies. Henry's part was a blast of never been done technical tricks at high speed set to the ominous tones of Black Sabbath. In the mid 1990s, there were a couple different board sponsors and Henry sort of fell out of the limelight. He rode for Profile and Platinum, plus C|O Wheels. He staged a comeback in 2001 while riding for Lucky Skateboards with a part for Transworld's Sight Unseen. It was a shared part with Marcus McBride, but it was heavy on Henry. The two also shared a part in the filmer video Chomp On This from 2002. This kickflip backside noseblunt slide from the ad was in that video.

As a heads up, I'm having some computer problems at the Vert Is Dead HQ. I'm not anticipating any problems in terms of creating content at this juncture, but I also am anticipating a few problems over the next month or so.

"Never forget where you came from". That Sight Unseen part was so explosive! The whole video ruled as well.
