Frontside SF is a magazine focused on Bay Area Skateboarding and Skateboard Photography.

See more from Tim Aguilar and other rad photographers in FSSF #5. This issue features more skate photography than any other issue of FSSF thus far. It also pays tribute to our good friend Shawn who was an awesome friend, photographer, skater, and member of the bay area skate community.

After much anticipation, we finally have an Indiegogo Campaign! Check out the vid, pledge a bit of money to keep Frontside in print, and get some good ass rewards.

Get stoked because our one year mag is almost here and it is a doosy. Aside from featuring the usual amazing skating and photography of our local champs, this issue also features original artwork from SF illustrator Patrick Sean Gibson, some goofy board designs from Consolidated Skateboards, original articles, and more. Should be dropping mid December.

Better get yourself ready for simultaneous chilling and ripping because summer and the FS Summer mag are almost here! This one's a doozy featuring some amazing photography and skating as usual as well as some reviews of skatey-things and some odds n' ends. Start looking for them in mid June.

Martin Willson is an NY skater/filmer/photographer that has gone west coast. He's a purist; analog photo and VX strictly. At Frontside we're all stoked to see him use his skills to bring beauty to SF's iconic, gnarly terrain.

Keep an eye out and lurk on his vimeo, flikr, and site to see skateboarding, straight up beautiful photography, and more.

After a high-speed line, Charlie ended with this casual 15ft BS50 over the rainbow. Charlie is a Bay Area ripper and you'll see more of him soon as he'll have an interview in the Spring 2013 Issue and is currently filming for a FSSF exclusive video edit.


On March 15th, pay our friends at Book&Job Gallery a visit and see the show "Drama in a Common Place", featuring the photography of Jai Tanuu, Ben Gore, Shawn Whisenant, and more.
