Daewon was born in Seoul, Korea. When he was 13, a neighborhood kid gave him his board.
He quickly got some money together and bought a used board. A few years later, a small skateboard company called Gemco came through on a demo tour. They saw him skate, and immediately signed him and took him back to the US.
Daewon was first sponsored by World Industries and appeared in their video Love Child in 1992. In 1999 he left World Industries to start his own company, Deca, and so Daewon appeared as a member of the Deca team in Rodney Mullen vs Daewon Song Round 2. He then appeared in two more Deca videos. Deca folded and Daewon then started Artafakt Skateboards, which was short-lived, and finally ended up creating Almost Skateboards with Mullen.
Daewon represents the best things about skateboarding... innovation, dedication, the hunt for new spots, and constantly teetering on the edge of on-board insanity. For over 15 years Daewon has amazed us with his unique approach to both tricks and terrain, and as his mind-melting mini-ramp part in Cheese and Crackers can attest, he shows no signs of slowing. There are only a handful of true legends in skateboarding and even fewer that seem to get better after 10 years as a pro. Daewon is one of them. His creativity and drive is overshadowed only by his fun-loving attitude and generosity.
