This Loveletter goes out to the people that keep skating real. The kids who didn’t make the team and didn’t need a coach telling them to "play the 5th quarter."
There's no right or wrong answer to, "Who did it best?" Here are a bunch of skaters sharing who they like in the latest Loveletter.
Jeff Grosso starts a new season of "Loveletters to Skateboaring" by talking about the origins of the backside air with Billy Ruff, Dave Andrecht, and many others. Check it out.
Apparently, it was just a rumor that Vans hired security specifically to keep Jimmy away from the premiere. He had free-range to throw his iron-grip and probing questions at every pro skater he came across.
In October 2008 the world collapsed. Six years later the Rumble in Ramona gets resurrected. Some things change but this is one export that China doesn't want. Smell the glove, vert dogs rule.
It's been five years since the last Rumble in Ramona went down. The vert ramp got a new facelift and the session was back on.
Mountain and Grosso teach the Scottish upstarts a lesson in classic 'crete in this special dip into the Burnout archives (i.e. a lousy re-run).
Eswic hosted a photo show featuring the unseen work of Hagop Najarian, a local at the Skate City skatepark during skateboarding's golden age. And Blender was there!
Grosso sits down with the Olsons, Hawks, Millers, and Albas to find out how he can raise his own son to be a skater.
It's a bit easier to strong-arm interviews with today's younger pros, but here's Jimmy Arrighi at the Vans Pool Party tangling with some legends who can hold their own including Cab, Hosoi, Grosso, Lucero, Agah, and many others.
Legends and young bucks converge each year on this hulking concrete behemoth. Congrats to Vans on 10 years of Combi and big ups to Tristan Rennie for coming out on top. This kid went ape...
