DAEWON SONG is a Korean American skateboarder born February 19, 1975, in Seoul and raised in Gardena, California. When he was fourteen years old, his parent separated; during this time, he learned skateboarding. The first board was he received from his mother, and later on, a shop called Sporting Ideas in the South Bay area of Los Angeles, California sponsored him a skateboard. Song had faced many ups and downs in his life, and his grandmother and sister looked after him. SONG found a Matix Clothing apparel company In 1998 with fellow professional skateboarder Tim Gavin.
It is hard to debate; some skateboarders say he invented hardflip; others say Rodney Mullen, but SONG himself said he learned to form a kid named Dan Gallagher.
