Daewon Song’s “Love Child” Recreation Exposes Vital Weaknesses That Our Enemies May Already Be Exploiting, Dudes

Former World Industries Man Daewon Song had the internet agog last week when he made the choice to re-film a few clips from his landmark “Love Child” section along with a heap of other zany moves that indicate his already freakish skills have only mutated bigger and more transition-savvy tentacles over the past couple decades. Daewon Song was roundly praised for his choices and we applaud him as well, except with the Zen-approved one hand’s worth of clapping because this seemingly fun exercise exposes a gaping weakness of modern skateboarders that puts the whole operation at risk.

Basically several generations’ worth of product upgrades and fashion cycles have seen our legs atrophy from the pinnacle of the early 90s, when miniscule wheels, sub-Abec 26 bearings and yards of cheaply dyed denim ensured a minimum five pushes between each trick. And on actual paved surfaces, as opposed to the custom-poured park surfaces of the current era. It’s no accident that among the most severe blows landed against the drill-bearing aggressor in Plan B’s early 90s document “Virtual Reality” were several beefy kicks. And similarly, unsurprising that no physical violence ended up transpiring between Mike Plumb and the shouty Baby Schizo the other weekend, as neither wanted to throw out the first feeble roundhouse attempt in a widely televised event.

The truth is that complacency has led us down this unhappy road, to a place where Will Smith’s child-star could whomp our collective behinds, where rollerbladers’ calves may be considerably more toned, where we stand little chance in grape-stomping contests or a race to the top of the Burj Khalifa. I think we can make this work again but it likely will require discipline, an aged/possibly alcoholic mentor and at least a couple training montages set to appropriately motivational tunes.

    That’s what I’m talkin’ about.

    True dat.
    Reminds me of how I always marvelled at Frankie Hill’s freakishly twiggy chicken legs.
    An added factor is the upturned nose, which allows one to scoop the board upwards when olleing, thereby decreasing the need for big pop.

    Steve Rodriguez’s calves are the holy golden pushers we should bow down to and learn from. His pushing odometer adds up faster than the national debt counter on Sixth ave. Rumors say that one hot New York summer day he made a pair of jeans into cut-offs by just standing on his tip toes.

    Makes me think of those crazy pre cky whiskey videos with markvich and his bleached mop.

    Was that Jack Curtin altercating with Mr. Plumb?

    • lionz Says:

      baby shitzo is not jack curtin.

      also, mike plumb has gotten into a handful of actual fights the last few years (not counting rowley breaking his nose back in place), they just weren’t televised or whatever.

    Baby Schizo got my number somehow while he was in town for some reason, and it turned into a crazy cat and mouse avoidance scheme. Before he became “Don’t Answer” in the phone, I talked to him a couple of times, and always had an excuse not to show him around. I’ve also met him a couple of times in person, but he never put two and two together, luckily. Dude is beyond the worst.

    • sk8-4-fun Says:

      Wow! For a second, I thought I wrote your reply. I had almost the same exact thing happen to me including him getting my number and listing him as “Do not answer.” He is one weird bird.

  7. confused Says:

    Cool video but why did Daewon do the same trick twice at the 3:29 mark? The second angle wasn’t that different from the first and he landed it clean the first time. Am I missing something?

  8. handerson Says:

    Kung Fu Kid not the Karate Kid. Daniel Larusso is the Karate Kid.

  9. Anonymous Says:

    I don’t get this post at all. I push everywhere skating and I have always been skinny.
