We push things forward with Thank You Skate Co, a brand by Torey Pudwill and Daewon Song.
Based in Seattle, Washington, Thank You Skate Co. is a joint venture between Torey Pudwill and Daewon Song. The team also includes Danny Hamaguchi and David Reyes. The brand’s mission is to use the collective power of skateboarding to shine a light on deserving causes and uplift communities through action. What’s unique is this brand not only talks the talk, they walk the walk. For example After taking a trip to Jamaica in 2019, Thank You Skate Co. teamed up with the Flipping Youth Foundation and Concrete Jungle Foundation to support the creation of the Freedom Skatepark and Youth Center in Kingston, Jamaica.
“Daewon and I have been friends for many years and have shared the same sponsor on a few occasions so it’s a real honor and dream come true to finally be able to start a board company with him that shows our appreciation for skateboarding.” said brand cofounder Torey Pudwill.
Throwbacks are always in style and this Dae La Song Deck and apparel collection was inspired by the iconic 80’s hip hop trio De La Soul out of Long Island, New York. The Peace/Love graphics are reminiscent of their debut album 3 Feet High and Rising. Might just have to pick one up for Me, Myself and I.
