Marquise Henry




I watched Marquise Henry start to move away from the beating Florida sun, towards the picnic tables under the metal shed. His baggy tan pants looked a dark brown around the knees from his sweat. He looked ready for a break so I approached him for an interview.


EC-Where are you from?


MM-Southern California, LA.


EC-At what age did you start skating?

EC-What’s the best video you’ve seen recently.


MM-Shit, the DGK video.

EC-Who’s your closest bud on the team?


MM-They all cool. They all my homies you know what I’m saying. But I’m going to have to say, TX is the one I hang out with the most.


EC-Do you think of tricks while you’re at a spot or do they ever just pop into your head randomly?


MM-Shit. That goes both ways.  If I’m at home chilling, watching TV, I could think of something. Of if I’m at a spot I could get inspiration from watching the homies.
