Ko Hyojoo

Longboard dance with the viral skater in an exclusive ride through Los Angeles.

South Korean longboarder Ko Hyojoo went viral when Korean-American rapper Kero One reposted her video to Facebook. Her skating videos went viral overnight. Take one glance at her skills and it’s obvious what’s catching everyone’s attention.

She makes dancing on her nine-inch wide longboard look simple – almost. The Goyang native picked up her skateboard exactly three years ago to date. The “super-introverted” Ko needed to “get a hobby” she described. Then proceeded to master the sport in three years.

The skater maneuvers her board like a pro through Los Angeles with mid-ride spins down the back alleys. It’s clear she loves her sport with a style that’s wholly her own. Fans love her style too – a girly take on skatewear with her trademark knee-high socks and the Nike SB Stefan Janoski.
