Front Crook Photos?
« on: January 11, 2021, 05:31:54 PM »
I've been trying to figure out how to take a nice looking photo of a front crook on a bank/transition, fish or long lens.

I can't for the life of me find any good photos for inspiration. Any iconic photos I just don't know about?

I looked for a front crook on a bank / transition by a pro skateboarder... damn itís hard to find. But it I reminded how front crooks are cool on rails and ledges so here are a few

by Seu Trinh
Lee Smith in 99 Switch Front Crook



Switch again by Jamie Foy

Maybe itís a hard trick to shoot on transition because you gotta show the angle of the board, and maybe sometimes the angle / spots donít allow photographers to have a great angle. I used the word angle too much

This one by Lavar McBride is cool, donít know the photographer





Here goes Suciu, donít know the photographer

Foy again



Considering heís a Front Crook master, maybe there is a photo of Foy doing it on transition ?

I also tried to look for FS Crook pop over into a bank
I think somebody from Flip team did in that ledge bank they skate in Lyon in Sorry ? Or what is somebody from the Cliche Team back in the day ? Talking about that spot



I found this one but itís not amazing



This one is close but itís more of a wallride maybe ?


Tried to find a photo on vert but didnít find anything

There is this 180 nose grind by JJ Rousseau shot by French Fred



At least I tried

These are all dope photos tho..  that Lavar one is so good everything in it..  blank menace star ? Jordan's and brown jeans Lavar, San Fran school yard or Socal??

Jamie Foy so good, this just reminded I have a selfie with Jamie Foy I think it's the only time I ever asked for a pic with someone like a lame

Yo, cheers for all of these! Wicked shots, definitely enough to draw some inspiration from.

Harry Lintell and Carroll shots are amazing

the frontside crooked grind when done properly is quite possibly skateboarding most stylish trick, at least to me.

Yeah, trying to capture the body shape, pinch AND show the context of the trick/spot all in one photo is pretty challenging with a front crook. Some great examples here or how to do it right though.

And then we also have foys El Toro front crooks, which is a display of the worst possible angle to capture the trick from.

But yes it can be a beautiful trick - the backfoot tends to go into a beautiful position (same goes for front noseslides)

Lol 90% of the photos aren't even what OP is looking for and half of them aren't even that proper.

IMO, that nobody gives a shit about, they should be pinched, tweaked, stood up on and driven by the back foot ala moses' front noses. Nothing worse than a snow plowed crook.

Carry on.

As i said in one in my previous post I tried to find front crooks on transition / banks but itís quite rare

I remember when I was younger I learned front crooks and I was so happy, it felt so good. Homie filmed it, and watching the footage I realized it was so ugly haha

Shit homie I bet it was. It was hard to get videos in my small town in North Carolina back then so I could imagine.

Seems like a pretty heavy trick, especially for the time to get used in a Girl DVD box set friends section.  Would explain why I never saw it though

Cool thread idea. It's definitely a hard trick to capture without getting a lot of the persons butt in the photo. I always liked this one of Mark Suciu

Sorry Plug, didn't wanna seem like I was hating, actually love most those pics u posted just thought it was funny.

Wish I could contribute and post my favorite front crooker Chany Jeanguenin but can't find the photos. Red rail, Chinatown, LA, 411 opener. That's my goat front crook.
