Fisheye Photos Are So Old They're New Again

The fish can make even the smallest obstacle appear gargantuan. Here we have Dirt Weasel frontside nosegrinding what appears to be a head-high rail on the kiddie course.

It's a tight squeeze for a photo on the little four stair, perfect for the fish. Robbie Kirkland - kickflip up.

This is Brandon early grabbing his way to a nicely contorted tuck knee chicken wing. The fish adds some height.

This is Ryan. We are both versed in other languages spoken by machines such as C# and SQL. Nice to see a fellow software geek on the board. This old sweeper move is like the floppy disk of skateboard tricks.

I don't know about this one, Ryan. Maybe next time we'll get a better one, but for now, take a poop.

When I asked Ryan if I could shoot a frontside grind photo, he said, "You're going to put me on that magazine, huh?" Damn, he knows about it already. Okay, I agreed to be on the cover with him. Here's the editor's debut on the cover of Frontside Grind Magazine.

Wow, Ryan got a take a poop AND the cover of Frontside Grind Magazine all in one session.

So World got the fans and DVS got the speakers, one of which you see here above DP's blunt fakie. Who's going to step up and get us a disco ball? Thanks World and DVS for the bowl warehouse improvements.
