Loveletter To LGBTQ+ Jeff Grosso’s Loveletters to Skateboarding:
Love Letters to Skateboarding is about the love we all have for skateboarding, a commonality we all share regardless of race, religion, or sexual orientation. We are all one people with a love for skating. This LGBTQ+ episode is testament to that. On March 31st, 2020 our beloved legendary Vans family member and larger than life defender of skateboarding, Jeff Grosso, passed away. Jeff said this LGBTQ series of Love Letters and Love Notes were the episodes he was most proud of in the 11 years of the show. These were the last episodes he filmed. In the episodes Jeff admits, “I was taught at a young age to speak this way… I have been part of the problem…but I am trying to change…the last thing I want to do is make someone feel uncomfortable or make them not feel safe ESPECIALLY WHEN IT COMES TO SKATEBOARDING.”
It is a fitting send off to our dear friend who believed that skateboarding is for everyone and all are welcome.

He invited Vans inside that world recently, recounting his journey from young talent to pro, and his determination to give back to the community that has shaped him. Directed by Patrick O’Dell.

The Reef Beneath:
Sometimes it’s the things we don't see that matter most. Connected by a shared passion for the ocean and a desire to protect it, Belinda Baggs, Kimi Werner, and Wayne Lynch embarked on a sailing journey along Australia’s Great Barrier Reef. The largest living structure on earth, the reef provides habitats for thousands of species. The reef, however, is under threat. Currently almost half of its coral has been lost or damaged, most of this in some way attributable to human impact, the biggest single factor being climate change. The three sailors explored the reef and experienced personally how something as vast and wonderful as the Great Barrier Reef can at the same time be entirely vulnerable, realizing as they sailed and swam that time is fast running out to save it.

Four Chileans were leaving for Pakistan with one thing in mind, the Trango Tower. This tower is iconic for world mountaineering for bringing together multiple disciplines such as climbing, altitude, mountain knowledge and conditions that require extreme resilience. With a summit of 6,250 masl, it is the target of ambitious and daring mountaineers. On July 17, four prominent national mountaineers, Sebastian Rojas, Diego Señoret, Diego Sáez and Nicolas Gutierrez managed to put their feet on top of this granite giant. Around 11 AM they would reach the summit after having to sleep in the open the night before at more than 5,000 meters above sea level at -30 degrees C. An ascent that lasted five days of vertical climbing along the iconic "Nameless" route. Route established in 1988 by one of the strongest alpine ropes perhaps in history.
