Matt Hensley Kingsize Hornblower | B Series

The Matt Hensley original Kingsize Hornblower was Matt’s second Pro Model on H-Street and it came out in around the same time as the mini board in the late 80’s. The Hornblower was also made on a different shape, much closer to the Street Swinger but with a bigger nose (thus shorter wheelbase) which we think came out before this shape. Because this shape is what Matt wanted to re-issue and he has as an original from back then, we opted for this more progressive shape.

The Kingsize is made in the Hell Concave with original shape and old school hole pattern and was one of the first boards of that era to be double drilled, as more street skating of that time required a shorter wheelbase and for a few years, the double drill was quite common, in order to provide this additional functionality.

The graphics to the Hornblower were drawn by Jeff Klindt, who himself has a very storied and legendary past with H-Street and as an artist, musician and very accomplished skater at the time. Jeff can be seen skating in the original H-Street video’s and his art and music were an important part of our history.

Matt’s boards are handmade at Watson Lam with original silk screen techniques and we are pre-booking the Hornblower B Series now for delivery in late February. Pre-book now and get the steel gray tee’s shirt for free along with the H-Street Metal Dog Tag (shown “large” in the photo, it’s 1.1” x 1.75” with a silver coated brass ball chain).

*All Dual, Tri-Split and solid stained wood come mixed in colors from the factory and images here are just one possible colorway of those treatments. Generally speaking, we request lighter and brighter colors, like Yellow, Orange, Pink, Red, light or medium Blues, Green and such, since we think our graphics look better on those stains but every once in a while, we end up with darker colors or the more earth tone colors, especially as part of a Dual or Tri-Split. If you have a preference of the solid stained wood, please note that in the memo field for the order and we’ll do our best. Dual and Tri-Splits are so random that we cannot do that. If you prefer to be more certain of what you’ll get, order the full dips or naturals.
