Jeff Grosso's Loveletters to Skateboarding are back, and with an almighty fucking bang - the first episode of series 8 is part one of the John Cardiel Letters. With loads of archive footage, interviews with Hewitt, Stranger, Lucero and Jim Muir amongst others and more promised, there's probably not a better way to kick a season off. I hope this one is ten parts long.

"Skateboarding is crazy; every once in a while somebody else will pop up that just changes your whole view on it and John came in and fucking blew doors." - John Lucero
