When it comes to making a career in skateboarding there a few requirements. Dashawn Jordan is checking off all the boxes. First is the footwork–you have to borderline defy expectations–but also important is your attitude, because if people can’t stand sitting in a van with you for a month you are not getting on the team. Dashawn shines. A super nice dude off the board, and an undeniably talented ripper on the board. In 2016 Dashawn’s shine became the spotlight. In a single year he won Tampa Am (his second major Am win), he dropped a heavy part “Next New Wave” for The Skateboard Mag and eventually was named by the mag to be “Year’s Best Am.” The next year he continued to step things up. After competing in the SLS Pro Open to earn a permanent spot on the roster for the year, Dashawn outright won the Chicago stop as the rookie! Don’t forget, though, it’s not all about his perfect laser flips or 360 flip 5-0s, Dashawn has the kind of attitude that has him destined for a career in skateboarding.
