James Hopkin's latest project: The Hop Podcast has launched.
I have created a podcast based around all the interesting people I meet in my skateboard and longboard journey. One of my passions is downhill skateboard racing, so there will be a lot of content about that subject, but it wont all be downhill. There are lessons to be learned from a wide range of people: skaters, brands, business people, marketers, event organisers.
You want to subscribe for the stories. Essentially I love telling stories, anyone that knows me will tell you I have a story for every topic. Life is about having fun. I started my skateshop in 2006, we founded the Australian Skateboard Association (ASRA) in 2007, I was involved in the first World Cup skateboard race in Australia (Newtons) in 2008. It has been an amazing journey the last 11 years, and I have only just started!
One of the great things about my skateboard life is the people I meet. They range from skaters, entrepreneurs, downhill racers, event organisers, OG skateboarders and many more. It is this network of friends I will be tapping into to for interviews. There will also be a huge amount of entertaining stories from past and present.
