It’s shocking to think that it has already been over a year since Jeff Grosso, the reliably outspoken skate critic and historian, passed away in his home at 51 years old. Grosso’s longtime shoe sponsor Vans has released a special birthday episode of his ‘Love Letters To Skateboarding’ series celebrating his life in his own words—watch the edit, above!
By the way, check out our special photo feature by Dave Swift, who has had the pleasure of working closely with Grosso for over 40 years, here, and read some heartfelt condolences from skaters whom Grosso has touched, directly or indirectly, during his epic lifetime in the below Instagram post. His unique, honest voice will be sorely missed. RIP Jeff Grosso: 1968-2020.
