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
7/30/2020Frog is changing fashion forever and maybe skateboarding too. You’ll never feel the same about either again.
7/23/2020Lotties does it again, bringing together some of the finest LA footage from legends like Reynolds, Jerry and Andrew Allen along with modern stars Nick Michel, Pedro Delfino, Dustin Henry and more. Don’t miss your window to witness this epic edit.
3/28/2020Frogs and friends Chris Milic, Frankie Decker, Nick Michel, Salomon Cardenas, and their fellow West Coasters rip through LA with their signature blend of bitchin’ bank moves and serious stunts. It may look fun but these guys are not playing around…
3/08/2020Stüssy’s new promo comes through with some strong coastal flavor. Aaron Loreth returns to wreck his staple Ventura spots and Cyrus Bennett closes the curtains. Plus, Lance has his own section. What more do you want?
3/06/2020Everyone’s favorite annual award ceremony is back to celebrate the year’s best breakthroughs and bunts. If you can’t make SOTY, might as well hope for a T-Eddy. See the list and guess who’ll get pissed.
