Front Board Appreciation
« on: December 02, 2016, 01:26:34 PM »
In light of the new Van's Video ""No Other Way" (Chima's part specifically), I've realized how awesome and difficult front boards are. My question would be: What is the gnarliest front board done? What's your favorite? Or who has the best at frontside boardslides. Sorry if this is a thread already, tried searching but couldn't find anything.

My Vote goes to Chima:

(a few good ones from 6:47 on..)

I love front boards. One of the most stylish "basic" rail/ledge tricks.
Gonz has a great one (of course)


I used to have a big high quality photo of Gonz doing the f/s board on the little rail he does in a line in Video Days. He's wearing a striped shirt, but I can't find it now for the life of me. If someone has it I'd love to see it again.

Arto too, the one he does through the kinked rail (the one Rowley lipslid in sorry) in Mind Field is perfect. He's got a mean one.




Jake Rupp has a great one, underappreciated too.

With favorite trick besides Ollie.

I've always like this one to fakie :


Also Bastien's last trick in sorry but it's a kick flip fs board. Probably the best one though.

Also always loved this one :


+ this of course :

I've seen that picture before and I remember thinking what is happening here? Did he come out of the wall? Or is that area to the right the runway? If so, why is the lighting so different? I still don't get that picture.

Bastien's kickflip fs board ender in Sorry is still the best fs board that has ever been done.

Yeah, the area to the right is the runway. You can tell there's no wall there because the black poles underneath "BARBE BEAUTY SALON" are reflecting the light under Jake.

That Jason Adams gif is awesome.

Glad to be reminded of Jake Rupp.  He's got some good examples in his Element part (1:30-1:43, 3:28):

Beat me to it!
He's more known for other tricks but geoffs front board is still engraved in my head when sorry came out.
the camera angle, the sideway approach, roll away, the white contrast, sketchy spot, so good.
That other one near the end where he powerslides is also fucked.
I zen those fs boards everytime i do them. Shit i broke my arm bailing one last year haha

Edit* slash has a mean one too


I just want everyone to know that I'm only 32.8% skateboarder, and that's on a good day. The rest is just soy and cum.
