Just after The Blading Cup 2017, Derek Henderson Henderson sought out to create his first ever professionally produced full length section. During the filming process, he received a phone call asking if he’d like to skate pro for Razors.
He thought they’d never ask! Hailing from Fresno, California, Derek has been blading since he was 8 years old, and riding for Razors since 2009.
Now a proud husband and father, and founder/owner of S9 Bearings, Derek is cementing his legacy as the most menacing, passionate, and powerful blader in Central Cali. Don’t mistake his kindness for weakness though, because the rattlesnake of rollerblading has bite - and a venemous trick vocabulary!

I laugh every time I see the Makio in this edit! Was NOT supposed to be in there, was meant to be a different angle for the run up. - Derek Henderson (2017).
Derek Henderson is a big, burly, man-blader. His skating is rugged, powerful, and badass. Fester wheels have to be tough, durable, and able to withstand the abuse Derek puts on them. If they are good enough for him, they must be good enough for you. - Fester Wheels (2012).
