Daewon Song

Daewon Song (born February 19, 1975, Korea) is a professional skateboarder. He is recognized for his technical street skateboarding. He co-owns Almost Skateboards with fellow pro Rodney Mullen, and skates for the team.

Daewon was born in Seoul, Korea on Feb. 19, 1975. 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 is a close friend of a famous freestyle skater Rodney Mullen and is featured opposite in the skateboard video Rodney Mullen vs. Daewon Song. He also has the ending parts in both Almost Skateboard's Round Three and DVS Footwear's Skate More, and many of the old World Industries videos, and the two Deca videos. Daewon Song also recently featured alongsode Chris Haslam in one of the very few miniramp-only videos, Cheese & Crackers by Almost Skateboards.
