Jeff Grosso, 42

Jeff Grosso has had ups and downs in his life and skate career but as his friends will tell you, when he steps on a skateboard he gives 110 percent. Black Label skateboards founder and lifelong friend John Lucero is quick to point out Grosso's appeal to skaters of all ages. "He has a youthful perspective on things and anybody from the crustiest old vert guy to the young guy on the street can identify with Jeff because of his never-give-up attitude. He still skates super big and super powerful." (Photo: Michael Burnett)
