Transworld Skateboarding is releasing a documentary about legendary street skater Daewon Song, in association with adidas Skateboarding.
DAEWON will cover the influence 44-year-old Song has had on the skateboarding world over the last 30 years, with the likes of Mark Gonzales, Tony Hawk, Marc Johnson, Steve Rocco, Giovanni Reda, and more all making appearances to discuss his legacy and personal journey. The industry greats all sing Song’s praises, such as Tony Hawk saying, “Every time he puts up footage it’s something no one else could do. It’s wildly impressive.”
Directed by Joe Pease, DAEWON premieres in Los Angeles at the Wiltern Theater for free on May 12, with a worldwide digital release slated for May 17 on skateboarding.com. Watch the trailer for the full-length documentary above.

Brand: Stüssy x Dr. Octagon
Key Pieces: The “Ice Cream Fudge” long-sleeve tee is a standout piece for fans of Kool Keith’s Dr. Octagonecologyst.
Release Date: Available now
Editor’s Notes: Stüssy follows up its “World Tour” collection with an extra-terrestrial capsule made in collaboration with Dr. Octagon.
Dr. Octagon, the extraterrestrial surgeon from Jupiter, has traveled back to California to deliver merchandise from his Plant Earth Tour (2023 A.D.) in collaboration with Stüssy. The partnership could not be more fitting.
Graphic tees, hoodies and long-sleeve tees remain true to Octagon’s macabre sensibilities. The “Tabloids” T-shirt ($36), for example, pictures a newspaper clipping of a “half-alligator, half-human” found in the Florida Everglades alongside the text, “How to perform psychic surgery – on yourself!”

The collection includes a hooded sweatshirt for $90, with speculative tour dates for an “Earth Planet Tour,” stopping at Mars, Venus, Mercury, Earth, Hale Bopp, Jupiter, Neptune, Pluto, Saturn and Portland during the lunar cycle 2023 A.D. The hoodie comes in bright blue, black and white colorways.
The long-sleeved “Ice Cream Fudge” T-shirt ($40) comes in three basic colorways, and depicts the skeletal doctor from his 1996 album, Dr. Octagonecologyst, with the line, “Carvel don’t tell — your whole crew is ice cream fudge” from the iconic track, “3000.”
