Matt Hensley in Hokus Pokus

Joe Coward

Matt Hensley’s night section in H-Street’s 1989 video “Hokus Pokus” is really inspirational. The section doesn’t just show Hensley skating, but some of his friends and team-mates too. However he definitely takes the award for man of the match as demonstrated with the highly impressive flips and backside flip over the bin. His raw and natural style had a massive influence over skaters at the time and that’s filtered through into modern day skating. Definitely watch this one for a great history lesson.
