Original comment: In the late 1980s, Craig Grasso was at the forefront of a growing movement within the BMX scene towards a new form of riding: street riding. Instead of adhering to strictly ramps or flatland, Grasso was one of the first riders to gain exposure through free riding the streets around where he lived in Redondo Beach, California. With the Wizard Publications office a town away in Torrance, the photographers from both Freestylin’ and BMX Action gravitated towards Grasso’s inventive riding, style of dress and antics. Many of his original moves were captured in the magazines before he abruptly disappeared from the BMX scene. ‘Finding Grasso’ is an attempt to look back at his influence on BMX, including the holiest of wallrides in Hermosa Beach.
