Frog's "Fashion Show 2018" Photos
The following photographs were captured while filming for the latest Frog video on our Olive-Garden-fueled trip to San Francisco. A few also came from our adventures in lovely Las Vegas—powered by mostly my gambling addiction. The real gems, however, were from a spontaneous fashion show curated at Zach Baker’s apartment somewhere in the depths of Gotham City. Thanks again, Zach. Sorry for running over hamburger meat on your foam roller. —Jesse Alba

Getting ready for the big debut, Chris preps his first look. Dustin Henry helped style his hair red, and the rest came naturally
Voila! Milic starts the show clad in nipple tape, what I hope to be Happy Hour shades, a makeshift Alltimers skirt, two different shoes and a hammer straight from the hands of Jim Greco to complete it
A closer glimpse into Chris’s toned body, somehow a lollipop appeared in his mouth. Thanks again to Dustin for setting the mood lighting
We had to call intermission before things got too heavy too fast. I hope that's beer and not pee-pee on my leg—either way, it was worth it
Back at it, Crazy T gets nasty with it on the roller aided by something mischievous in his martini glass
Etienne, director of the fashion show and runway wrench-thrower, drinking the worst possible beer known to exist and smoking inside. A perfect strategy for getting yelled at by a TM from a company that rhymes with Xans
I did techincally waste this sheet of grip and probably ruin that board for fashion's sake, but I'd like to believe somebody re-gripped and skated that cursed deck
A tote bag, some shorts and a roll of the dice, acknowledging my gambling addiction with my look was something I always dreamed of
And the fashion show comes full circle with a new take on the look that kicked it off. Where Chris found that baseball glove is beyond me and I really wished those were Greco’s Supras. There's always next year
Behind the scenes, we had crazy T and Dane Barker’s agent talking shop. Possibly scouting a new Frog rider to take under his wing and showcase him in the next Lotties video
A small glimpse of the aftermath
Of course we had to skate at some point. Here's everyone pretending to be cool with me trying a manual trick for hours till it got dark and never landing it
Luckily Hayden Burns did this quicker than I could finish a meal at Del Taco. Hell yeah, bud
And he gave me props for not possessing a chin
Hayden featured here in another @wet_fits. It was a shame that the guys from Atlantic Drift pulverized this spot, leaving nothing left for our skate team to walk away with
Chris ripping a giant fart in Vegas
Hayden and Nick on our first trip for the video, standing outside our Airbnb. Later at the same spot, Daniel Dent—the lovely filmer and editor of the video—shit his pants on his birthday and passed out in the shower. Thanks for filming!
Somehow we made it out of Vegas to play in the Bay. Pat Gallaher kickflips into das bank with Tony Hawk’s previous pro model
Pat also came through with a hefty switch crow. We spent way too much time here this day, but luckily Tony V treated us at Olive Garden afterward to nurse our sorrows. Thanks, Tony!
Sylvain already shut the spot down, but I thought it would be alright to grab a black-and-white melon nosebonk as a souvenir
Ahhh, back to color, thank the Lord. Chris Milic uses his upper body strength to alley-oop into another wallride grab maneuver. “Sounds weird on paper but it is awesome.” —Tomas Morrison
The rest of the photos are of myself, which I apologize for. Here I am trying to stretch my chins on a fence that hundreds of people have already wallridden
Walked up to Mike Anderson trying this feeble switch the other day with none other than Wheatley behind the lens...
Can’t think of anything clever to say about this one, besides the fake Thrasher shirt and this photo ending up on the Thrasher website. It's called fashion, sweetie, look it up
10/13/2021From LA to Australia, Vans employs its heavy roster of A-listers in a spectacle of global proportions. It must be SOTY season...
10/07/2021Koston, Spanky, Hsu and some of LA’s raddest rippers meet up at their sacred curb spot for some serious slappies. Looks like Rowan super sized his sessions.
10/05/2021Zack Wallin goes to work for Dickies, Tyson Bowerbank's Passing Time part, Escapist's Our World video, John Shanahan's Pangea Jeans part and more in today's episode of Skateline.
9/30/2021At a secret bar in Los Angeles, Nick Michel was ambushed with his first pro board on Frog. Here's some pics to give a quick glimpse of what everyone’s trying to remember from the night.
9/10/2021Alexis, Dustin, Leon, Una plus plenty more from the Dime and Vans camp spread the hype from Canada to NYC. Oh yeah, it’s good.
