No Comply Guy and New York city-based skater-designer Yoon Hyup is amazing. He’s one of the most fascinating and unique illustrators out there.

So we hit him up to deliver to you a whole new kind of interview to find out what are some of his all-time ‘best evers’ are on a board. 


What’s the best grind or slide that you’ve seen?

I would have to say Daewon Song‘s Tre Flip Noseblunt Manual out in Almost Skateboards “Round III” video.



Yeah Daewon’s trick turned a lot heads, speaking of flipping the script. What’s Your favourite flip trick ever?

It has to be the one that Josh Kalis did. His Tre Flip over the trash can.



In your opinion, what’s the best video part of all-time?

Best trick you’ve ever seen?

Best place to skate?

Any spot that has curb and nice flat ground



Best people to skate with?

Anyone who enjoys skating and shares good vibes





Best skate culture moment?

My favourite skate culture moment was the 90s and early 2000s skate graphics when Alien Workshop graphics were made by Mike Hill and Don Pendleton.

Also early-2000s Zoo York deck graphics and collaborations with artists.

If I can get back to that time on a time machine, I’d collect all my favourite decks there.
