    Cardio, yeah bend skating like crazy the last couple of years and lost 30 lbs from my 45yo gut. I guess it's harder to lose when you've been skating like crazy professionally the whole time. it's saved our asses countless times and I'm sure it'll be there for us if we have to coffin roll ourselves into our own graves. Thanks Jeff!

    Thank you Jeff Grosso.
    For all the brilliant, opinionated Love Letters so far.
    I often agree with your views, however stupid they are. Maybe it's all in your delivery .

    This is my favourite.

    I bought your deck in 87 but you probably didn't get the money. if you did you'd have wasted it.

    Cruising the transitions or just around town is enough of a fix now that i am old…but the youth and their parents get freaked when they see an old man skating at the park and my kid is not with me. My kid is 24 and has his own kid…
