An Epic Session For the Cover of Frontside Grind Magazine

Posted on Tuesday, October 6, 2009 by Rob

By Rob Meronek

A long time ago, I picked up this magazine called Juice. The only thing I remember is thinking, "They should call this Frontside Grind Magazine." I guess it's geared towards the leopard print pads and nine inch board crowd. As I tend to take a small joke and beat it into the ground re-using it over several years, here I continue by shooting several photos for the cover of Frontside Grind Magazine in the Bowl at SPoT earlier tonight. I have finally figured out the secret to a photography career: aim low. Like, at the coping.
