Matt Hensley Kingsize Hornblower | C Series
The Matt Hensley original Kingsize Hornblower was Matt’s second Pro Model on H-Street and it came out 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 which we think came out first. Matt had opted to just do the second shape but due to popular demand and quite a bit of social media feedback, we are making a small run of the Hornblower shape, which is called the C Series, limited to 50 boards.
The first shape of the Hornblower Kingsize is also made on the Hell Concave with the first original shape and old school hole pattern.
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 C Series now for delivery in late February.

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.
