Daewon Song | Almost X Next Up Foundation

Daewon Song | Almost X Next Up Foundation

Next Up Foundation has big plans. Since 2009, the nonprofit has been providing after school programs in Orange County—reaching out to at-risk youth and promoting positivity through skateboarding—and now Next Up is in the midst of a major project that will help the foundation and local skaters move up to the next level: its Success Lab in Anaheim.

Almost has teamed up with Next Up Foundation, donating decks (signed by Rodney Mullen, Daewon Song, Chris Haslam, Youness Amrani) in support of the effort. One-hundred percent of the proceeds go to Next Up. In November, Daewon went to the Next Up headquarters to present the decks, hold a best trick contest, and get a few tricks himself. There are a very limited quantity of these signed Almost x Next Up Foundation decks now available in The Canteen.
