Henry Gutierrez is truly an East Coast skateboard icon. He is probably to Virginia, what John "Tex" Gibson is to Texas. Henry comes from the land of "Fork Crew". He grew up skating Mt. Trashmore vert ramp. Henry was part of the 80's vert movement and is part of the Gutierrez clan. His siblings Eddie & Glen are shredders in their own right. Henry had his first "Pro" model in the '80's with Sims Skateboards.
Being a vert skater takes a lot of dedication, the ability to endure extreme pain on a daily basis and the desire to push yourself beyond what seems possible. The Virginia Beach Fork Crew has a long -standing history of vert skating and Henry's attitude towards skating and life has been about having fun and enjoying it with friends. Thats why it makes sense he rides for Embassy,the gnarliest skate team in Texas. -Jim Murphy
