The series finale of Love Letters to Skateboarding is here, and it’s a fitting send-off to the late, great Jeff Grosso.
True to Jeff’s belief that skateboarding belonged to the kids, this special final episode is hosted by his son, Oliver, among other friends and skateboarders who remember Jeff and his contributions to skateboarding. Featured in the episode are interviews with fellow skate legends and lifelong friends John Lucero, Eric Nash, Lance Mountain, John Cardiel, Ray Barbee and Jason Dill, as well as the younger generation of Vans team riders including Lizzie Armanto, Yndiara Asp, Pedro Barros, Breana Geering, Pedro Delfino, Poppy Starr Olsen and Kokona Hiraki. Aside from being a who’s who of skating, these contributions only go to show the wide impact that Jeff’s friendship and wise words had on generations of skaters everywhere.
The episode highlights some of the most powerful moments in the series’ history, including Jeff’s advocacy for women skateboarders, the LGBTQ+ community and countless others with who he connected throughout his career and time hosting Love Letters. Though with this series finale we’ll all be saying a fond farewell to the series, Jeff’s work will continue to serve as an encyclopedia of everything skateboarding holds dear, and a reminder of his lasting impact on the sport, despite his tragic passing in 2020. Hit play on the final Love Letters above. GROSSO FOREVER.
