Jeff Grosso – Vans 50th Anniversary

“As far as shoes brands… No actually, as far ANY company in skateboarding goes – I don’t give a shit if you’re Independent Trucks, Spitfire Wheels… Fucking Nike, whoever the fuck you think that you are. Right, nobody has done for skateboarding like Vans has done for skateboarding.”

“Mark Gonzales really taught me what skateboarding was about, which was street skating and transition skating; it’s all just skateboarding an you do your own thing.”

“Mic-E Reyes was good, he kind of took care of me when everyone else was going nuts and I’m fourteen years old just watching all this shit go down.”

Catching Up with Vincent Alvarez

“The process has been a lot different considering that the line up isn’t as big as it was for Pretty Sweet. I feel like it’s more of a tight squad whenever we meet up and go out to skate. I would really like to film a lot more lines with this part. That’s what I’ve always enjoyed filming-wise; to show how I skate, not so much what tricks I can do.”

Eric Koston Interview

“I came up during the era of nobody really giving a fuck about what you did beyond what was filmed and seen on videos. Now you have got to be considerate of who is seeing all aspects of what you do as a public figure. You’ve got to remember that there are kids who look up to you. You have to think about that, there’s a responsibility there. “
