    We talked with Yuna for a bit about her longboard path, what she loves and what gives her the chills.

    LGC: When did you started skating and why?

    YK: I started skating in December 2012. There was a man in my college who learned how to ride a longboard in USA. He wrote an introduction about longboarding in the college’s web . It seemed to be very fun, so I asked him to teach me how to ride a longboard.

    LGC: What is it that you like the most about skating?

    YK: Until recently, my favorite part of skating was learning a new trick. Now I want to make a good and smooth dancing/trick line with several skills. But it is REALLY hard!!!

    LGC: What’s your biggest challenge while you skate?

    YK: I am a very coward person haha. So I’m scared to ride fast :( The speed is my biggest challenge in my whole longboard life!

    LGC: The Korean scene is really popular right now. How do you see the scene?

    YK: Longboard dancing is soooo popular in Korea now. The whole Korean scene became bigger with dancing and freestyle but also the downhill/freeriding scene is getting bigger. I’m very happy because longboarding is a famous sports now but also I’m worried about the longboard-caused accidents due to the lack of safety gear or un-knowledge of certain sport rules.
