“Loveletters to Skateboarding”

Vans launched the eleventh season of “ Loveletters To Skateboarding,” but there’s a twist. This was the last season filmed with Jeff Grosso. The legendary skater and host of the series, who was a champion for inclusive skateboarding, passed away suddenly earlier this year. It’s amazing to see this continue.

🎙 Finally, a special shout-out to the dudes in The Nine Club who celebrated their 100th EXPERIENCE EPISODE!!
