Jeff Grosso’s Loveletters to Skateboarding returns for an all new, fourth season beginning May 24th at offthewall.tv.
This time around, Jeff pays tribute to the best memories of skateboarding from its infancy to its evolution today.
Skateboarding and music can be a positive force for change. That simple thought is something REAL and Green Day have always believed.
Longtime friends Billie Joe Armstrong of Green Day and Jim Thiebaud Co-Founder of REAL Skateboards have always talked about doing something together and the time and cause for this effective collaboration was just right. As a result, Actions REALized X Green Day decks to benefit Children’s Hospital and Research Center Oakland have been released.
Dig into the full story, with video, a photo gallery of the Real Team with the kids and Green Day and benefit decks now live at ActionsREALized.com
A portion of the proceeds from these special decks will be donated to Children’s Hospital and Research Center Oakland. Children’s Hospital and Research Center Oakland is the Bay Area’s only independent children’s hospital. For over 100 years, its mission has been to take care of every child who needs help, regardless of ability to pay. Hats off and high fives to all of those that put in the effort to pull this off for these kids in need of support.

The Masters heated up the Combi bowl with soulful lines and classic tricks and in the final rounds Chris Miller seized a victory over Steve Caballero with his consistency and powerful runs.
In the Pro division Bucky Lasek earned his return atop the podium by powering through his five allotted runs with a diverse approach, by not repeating his lines, and hammering out difficult and technical tricks. Roll the recap footage to see how it all went down.
