I'm as surprised as you are.
Kyong was pro for Toxic. That's about all I know. He also had a couple curb tricks in the opening part of the new Assault Skateboards video, which is why I dug this ad up.
Assault has a promo video out now. It's a fun little flick. The intro is a total curb attack featuring the team and friends, including Mario Rubalcaba, Kyong, Jason "Weeman" Acuna, Heavy Metal Chuck, and Aly Moore. Ollies are not popped and every trick is slappied into. There are parts from younger team riders Greg Harbour, Wildman, Demarcus James, Casey Meyer, and Ace Pelka. They all rip with combination of new and old tricks. The highlights for me are the parts from former H-Streeters Chris Livingston and Kieu "Donger" Lieu. Livingston tears up a couple of pools and the Donger can still ollie over everything in the streets. Finally, the video ends with Ricky Winsor slashing around on a few backyard quarterpipes. SSD.
