    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! Alexis Ramirez sits down and takes the Thrasher Test while his newest Sk8Mafia teammate Alex Willms gets a Heads interview. Need more Mafia? We interview Brandon Turner about his rise from child prodigy to certified SD legend (and all the bumps along the way). This one’s heavy. And we ain’t done yet—Chris Wimer also gets the Heads-interview treatment, Fred Gall breaks down some crusty skate spots he’s known over the years, Salomon Cardenas tells the tale of breaking a testicle in half, the resurrection of Skarfing Material has Ben Kadow serving up a recipe for Refrigerator Soup and we dive into the worst ads to have ever appeared in Thrasher. Bored during quarantine? This one will keep you busy until it’s safe to creep in the streets again.
