Jeff Grosso's 'Love Letters To Skateboarding' are a series of worldly skate videos made possible by the original SK8 shoe - Vans! Each episode takes you to a new location and lays out the history of skate culture within the community, and what it means to those who live there. Passions run deep as Jeff does interviews with heroes from the past and those currently on the beaten path. From now to then and here to there, one thing is clear, we all have a love for skate.
Check out this episode where Jeff heads to Venice Beach, about how a crew of have-nots turned a whole lot of nothing into something! 'In the 70’s and 80’s, we didn’t skate for any chance at fame, we all did it for the passion.' It’s epic how Jeff gave shine to Chuck Katz and Josh Klassman, two photographers that came from the turf!
