In 2014, Hyojoo Ko (@hyo_joo) hopped on a longboard for the first time as a way to unwind. “I was burning out after repeated night work and weekend work,” says the former UI designer-turned-content creator and freelance model from Seoul, South Korea. “I lost my life. When I had free time on a weekend, I wasted my time not knowing what to do. I thought I shouldn’t spend my 20s like this anymore, so I looked for an outdoor activity. That’s when I found out about longboarding.”
Known for her signature dance moves on the board, Hyojoo started experimenting with different kinds of movement almost immediately. “Cruising around with a longboard was attractive enough, but dancing was even more appealing and thrilling as I balance and move freely.”
