Jae Seung 'Jason' Choi describes himself as “just a regular kid who fell in love with skating” – yet this kid has already made history, simply by doing what he loves.
In 2012, at Bomb the Line in Germany, Jason became the first-ever Korean skateboarder to qualify for an international event. He’s now the unofficial standard bearer for skating in Korea, and is just amped to support skating on home turf.
Growing up in the States, Jason was exposed to a vibrant skate scene from a young age: “ I wish I didn’t waste so much time on other things… instead of focusing on what I love doing, which is skating.” he recalls.
Luckily, sponsorship followed him as he moved from the States back to the South Korea. By 2011, Jason was taking part in the Volcom Korea Tour, and a sweeping win on the Red Bull Local Hero tour gave him his biggest opportunity to date. In December 2012, Jason signed with Red Bull Korea - now, when he’s not competing or tuning up some new tricks, he’s out inspiring more kids to get into their local skate scene.
2015 saw him star in an amazing three part video series documenting a tour around the Korean peninsula alongside rippers Yoshi Tanenbaum and Alex Mizurov.Read more
