Footage of Justin Henry from Columbus, Ohio for sponsors. Filmed June and July 2012.
Justin just turned 17. He currently rides for 5BORO NYC and is flow for Silver Trucks and Ninja Bearings.
I've been filming Justin off and on for the past 2 years and more so over the past 2 months. I truly believe he is capable of almost ANYTHING on a skateboard, and he is still learning new things every day. I've filmed a lot of AM skateboarders over the past 15 years that end up going nowhere, simply because they don't have the drive or follow through abilities, but have all the talent in the world. I've seen countless guys fade away without those qualities or the mentality to take on the role of a skateboarding for a living and dedicating to it. Also the mental toughness to handle the pressures of sponsorship, demos, contests and other responsibilities. Justin Henry has all of those qualities and more. He doesn't drink or smoke and has an extremely positive and outgoing, yet reserved and humble personality. He values family and friends first and has great morals. But on top of all that mental stuff, he has the raw killer instinct on a skateboard, mixed with a relaxed confident style. I believe the sky is the limit for him and I also truly believe he will thrive under any sponsor who choses him to represent their brand.
