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?

 

MM-13.

 

EC-Who got you into the sport?

 

MM-A couple of buddies of mine. I used to play basketball and run track and a couple of buddies of mine that I was running with got me into.

 

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

 

MM-Shit, the DGK video.

 

EC-Tell us about that.

 

MM-We went all over. State to state, filming everywhere. It took them like 3, 5 years.

 

EC-What’s your favorite video of all time?

 

MM-I have to say the Mouse video. Girl and Chocolate video.

 

EC-What do you listen to?

 

MM-Kendrik Lamar, Jay Z. A little bit of Kanye. Everything basically, except country.

 

EC-No country?

 

MM-No, I can’t get down.

 

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.

 

EC-What else do you love other than skateboarding?

 

MM-I’m gonna have to say art. Drawing.

 

EC-What kind of stuff do you draw?

 

MM-I’m into portraits, faces. I like getting all the details in the face, making it look as realistic as possible.

MM-New Orleans because I’ve never been there before. It was cool seeing Canal St, checking out the different stores.

 

EC-The food?

 

MM-Definitely. Crab cakes. They got the bomb crab cakes there.

 

EC-What are your plans for when you get back?

 

MM-Shit. Just filming.
