#250posts24hrsAAPI - 112: Speaking Of Daewon...15 Reasons Daewon Song Is Not Your Average Pro Skater

Sunday, May 21, 2017

Just in case you wanted to know more about the Korean American skateboarder:

Daewon Song is one of the few people who can skate better than anyone at any given spot without looking like a showoff. I first witnessed this in the 1990s, when I saw him at a school yard. He can perform the ridiculous feats you expect—as documented in videos like New World Order (1993), Trilogy (1996), and Rodney Mullen vs. Daewon Song(1997)—without making anyone feel like a lesser skateboarder. But as the past decade has shown, Daewon’s skills go well beyond benches. He’s equally adept at riding parks, along with obstacles few others would even deem skateable—think rocks and tree trunks. And despite being pro for more than 20 years, he's still very much a skate rat.
