Two years ago, Ko Hyojoo stumbled upon a video of a longboarder. Intrigued by the footage, the South Korean native visited a local skate shop to purchase her first board. Equipped with her longboard and personal "simple style", Ko is setting a new standard for young ladies all across the globe.

In a recent interview with Vogue, she stated, “I do it mainly as a hobby. I learned that as long as you have fun with it, you will improve drastically.” Ko is classified as a newbie in the sport being she only has two years of skating under her belt. We are so excited to see what the future holds for the longboarding sensation.
