2018 began with yet more satisfying UK skateboarding transfer news, with the announcement that Dom ‘The Output’ Henry has joined the Skateboard Cafe team.
Utilizing the contemporary version of a press release, (i.e. Instagram), Cafe dropped the news that the people’s champ had joined the team last Sunday, thus handing us a perfect excuse to fashion this little ode to Dominic and his back catalogue of skateboarding produce for this week’s Sunday Service.
In the early 00’s, myself and Ryan Gray worked out which UK skateboarders had produced the most amount of video parts over the preceding decade or so and, as far as I can remember, it ended up a dead-tie between Franklin Stephens, Joe Gavin and Mark Baines, who between them had collectively produced over 30 sections during a ten year period, (that’s at least one full part, usually more, every year for a decade).
Obviously, the Internet has changed how things work now and ‘sections’ have slowly morphed into ‘some footage’ and/or Instagram posts which is fine, but even with that shift in how skate footage comes out, I think we can safely add Dom Henry‘s name to the list of most productive UK sponsored skateboarders of the decade that began in 2010.
