Hopps is a new skateboard company that is 100% skater owned. Like most small skateboard companies, creativity, having fun and the love of skateboarding seems to be the driving force behind this brand. Not sure about who's on the team though. So far it seems to be only owner/creative director Jahmal Williams. Watch him get reckless in the streets of NY and peep the website.
Update: Upon further research, Hopps have been around for at least a year. I've been caught sleeping!
