Jeff Grosso, Invert:JeffGrosso_InvertJeff Grosso, without question one of the funniest most genuine dudes out there, obliged me with this padless invert on the metal vert ramp of Bath skatepark on the tail end of the Indy 30-year tour some years back. The average age of the crew on this week-long sojourn around the UK was a good decade higher than your average tour van sees, and the transitions at the parks we visited were a good deal shorter than they were all hoping for, but the skateboard history and debates in the van between stops made up for it; at one point someone decided to phone Tony Hawk to settle a dispute about the frontside & backside issues surrounding of judos and frigids – not your average situation.

The trip actually ended up being essentially a whole host of Haslam demos – on a tour that had been sold as a demo free – and photo ops of the others were not exactly forthcoming, until we got to this small vert ramp at the end of one day where Grosso helped me out with this expertly stalled number.
