Grounded in the brand values of inclusivity and being open to everyone, Vans believes this unifying message must be told, and stands in support of the LGBTQ+ Skate Community as we continue to drive positive change. – Vans

The collective skateboard world mourns the loss of our dear friend, Jeff Grosso. Our thoughts are with his family during this time.
“To say Jeff’s impact on Vans, our people and skateboarding was unparalleled, would be an underestimation of how much of a role he played in the lives of us all. From curating content that highlighted the global skate community, to his unique and raw commentary of the skate industry, and mentoring up-and-coming athletes – there was nothing that Jeff wouldn’t do to uplift skateboarding and the people around it. Jeff Grosso is the epitome of skateboarding”. — Steve Van Doren
Jeff Grosso 1968-2020 and forever.
