Daewon Song #3.

This Modern Love.

Daewon did something different for his part in Skate More and skateboarding was the better for his efforts. Rather than stick to the usual schoolyard picnic table trickery we were used to seeing, he searched out some more unusual spots. It also felt like he simplified his trick selection, in terms relative to Daewon of course. There was still the mix of manuals and blunt slides, but he was also doing pole jams to fakie and going back to his Z-Boy roots with transition and ditch skating. Granted he was doing kickflip transfers in a steep pool or jumping into some tight transitions, but again that's Daewon.

up to shoe 14 now, (but those stan smith-esque ones look better). Daewon seems like a nice guy from what "non-skating" clips I've seen of him.
