Daewon Song
« on: April 07, 2013, 05:52:31 PM »
This guy is definitely one of the best skaters of all time, and still puts out footage quite often. He's also the most genuine nicest guy and watching him skate in person is mind-blowing. Post your favorite Daewon footy.



I think this is his most recent video, the fact that he started when he was 14 is unbelievable...

Good call. Daewon somehow manages to get more and more exciting with age, even well into his 30's. His ability to reinvent his skating ability and continue to progress and stay interesting is unmatched in skating.
This part is still amazing to watch years after it came out:

Also-


"absolute perfection"


Rail skaters are so fucking lucky he never got into skating rails. 3 flip noseblunt would have been abd by the mid 90's.

Yep. Yep. After watching all of these clips again, I have decided that he is definately my favorite skateboarder of all fucking time.  Thank you for making this thread. We think alike.


I suck at SLAP.

Thanks for posting all these videos, you guys are right, it's hard to say he's not the best skater of all time. I remember the first couple times I skated with him I was so intimidated because he would do lines around the park doing gnarly tricks and not miss a single trick. I'm not sure if you guys have seen this since it was on The Berrics and for some reason Slap hates them...

This is one of the favorite thing I've ever seen in my life





So much fucked up craziness in this that after watching it for probably 15 times I still don't think I can fully understand how amazing it is.

Daewon has always been one of my top favorites. Heres a clip that someone made when he won soty in 2006. Its just a compilation of some of his stuff over the years.



and then no ones posted this yet either. Crazy how consistent he is.

Why do skateboarders make bad DJs?




They always play Daewon Song.

That Daewon Love Child recreation video above is unreal. It's one of my favorites. All those clips that come after he's done the LC part are inspiring. I can't think of the superlatives to properly describe the creativity in his skating and choice of spots. One of a kind and a generational talent.

Sorry if this was posted, but he did an Off The Grid video for the Berrics that was pretty much what skateboarding is all about....fun:

I agree, Daewon is like a fine wine: he doesn't necessarily get more mellow, but sophisticated and complex, with time. Diggin it.
