    T-Funk’s rides a rarely-seen backside stalefish down a wall, carving out a spot on the July 2020 front. More DC action inside as John Gardner (DC team rider and team manager) dishes on flutes, the aforementioned Funk, Euro missions and their upcoming Domino flick. Most notably this issue contains our own love letter to Jeff Grosso—containing epic photos from grom Grosso to elder statesman and tales of Mothra from those who knew him best. Jeff’s enthusiasm for skating was contagious and his willingness to tell it like it is and share his love for our culture will live on forever. RIP in peace, Grosso. Pop-quiz time!
