This is why it's important to tell your friends there tricks are whack.

Just because you can do a trick doesn't mean you should

some of his earliest YouTube videos are of him skating an ankle high flat bar in his driveway, but he was doing some pretty crazy technical tricks on it. during his formative skateboarding years he had no reason to develop the technique to get onto or over anything with any legitimate height.

99% sure this is why he skates the way he does.

100%. he used to post that footage here and everyone was feeling it haha pine pre-jeffwonsong was the little slap homie
:) I must have been tripping last night

wasnt there an interview where at the end, he told the haters to either fuck themselves or that he's boning all the haters's girlfriends? not my cup of preference, but i felt differently after i visualized him being a real person who has an account on slap. also, my guess what his pop was due to him never aging, or something.

he was a huge shit talker for a long time. Always claiming he was about to get a big sponsor too. Seems to have mellowed out now tho

I don't buy the "stepped off my tail one time," explanation. That's asinine. You're clumsy one time so you decide to adopt terrible technique instead of getting over an irrational fear... Yes. Makes total sense.

"I primo'd one time so I never flipped my board again."

Maybe itís his own business how he wishes to execute his tricks and what tricks he wants to do. But now youíre hurt and get mad because someone you dislike does what he likes. Watching his skating is a choice. No one forces you to look at it.

Good luck living life on a planet with a lot of people. Many of which are not doing what you wish they would do and are morons.

But I feel you guys, life is hard and getting mad over it is easy.  ;D

Watching his videos at 0.25x speed is an experience...

Almost all of his tricks look like some pressure variation because he doesn't flick at all. Most of the time he just kicks his foot straight downwards or out of the way. Leaving his nose totally untouched. It's either that or the foot leaves contact with the deck only to kick it down a little bit later. That's why he doesn't have pop and a lot of his tricks look rocketed.

His legs end up being super close together during tricks. As of a medical reason, I don't think there is any. But if I had to say, maybe he can't spread his legs to far apart.

Edit: Or maybe he has shit ankle flexibility.

As an example, two kickflips down a gap at his highest points, one by Jeff the other by Kader.

Itís retardation from lying about pressure flips being inward heels.

Do you think posting on SLAP during a crucial growth spurt hindered his pop? I can say with certainty that since I started posting mine has been in steady decline.

I actually watched a video where he explains his reasoning and you're not gonna believe how ridiculous it is:

He once accidentally stepped off the tail of his board and fell, so now he puts his foot as close to the bolts as possible.
I wouldn't have any pop either if I'd use his weird as fuck foot stance.

The source is this video, or part 2 or 3 of it. I really don't want to watch dan corrigan in order to confirm which one it is.

It's this video, around 12:30 mark.

Oof though, what a douche of an interviewer and what a way to do flip tricks...

Ok I watched it from the timestamp onwards. And itís so weird how the interviewer is pretty arrogant and borderline mobbing deschare (i thought jd is going to cry at some point), but at the same time he is totally on point in what he is saying, he totally identifies the problems and his tips are actually spot on and literally helpful. Like its not some bullshit sideline coaching, itís instant visible improvements.
I am confused about what opinion i should have about him.

I had no idea he placed his back foot in that weird position to pop until I saw that video. Honestly I think he may be inbred and have joint issues kind of like some breeds of dogs

I can attest to this, but for me it's been emotional stunting and not physical. I'm quite gangly, like a tall Pine.

My friends and I call him the anti-pop guy, he throws the board under and catches it inches from the ground, no matter the trick or height of spot, its an amazing technique

He just randomly liked a video I uploaded 6 months ago from a Japanese breakfast concert. I've never liked any of his posts and don't follow him so no clue how that even came about. Regardless of his lack of pop, man has great taste in music.

I appreciate that he basically said ďif I grew up in California around other skaters Iíd just be a normal dude doing the same tricks as everyone else but with shitty style, at least Iím weird dude doing unique tricks with shitty styleĒ.

My biggest complaint is the name ďJeffwon SongĒ. Itís like, yo Daewon is still pro and still fucking rips, and you skate nothing like him. I get his friends gave him that name but if it were me I would definitely request people donít call me that.
