628: Shovel the ramp, shovel the driveway: Jeff Grosso’s Skateboarding Love Letter – Tom Groholski

Tom Groholski – The Barn – NJ 1985

So this is Jeff Grosso’s two part Love Letters to Sakteboarding : Tom Groholski episdode. Its great (although I cannot figure out how to embbed the video from Van’s sit into WordPress) here is the link:


Love letters are cool for sure considering THOS is a Romance Novel about skateboarding I have to say Jeff’s videos are amazing and he gives Tom some well deserved treatment. Lots of amazing footage, interviews and quotes from and about Tom…too cool.

after watching both parts of Tom’s video check out this Tony Hawk video and you can see how influential Tom’s style/brand of skating has risen to the top and has not only stood the test of time it has become the basis that modern ramp skating has evolved from. I could not help watching this 2012 Hawk video and not think about Tom and his influence.
