A full-on all-terrain shredder, whether it’s massive rails, steep vert walls, or crusty DIYs, Adam will tear it up.
A kid growing up in the middle of Canada, in a town called Thunder Bay, spending endless hours skating a vert ramp alone in his barn. It sounds like an urban legend, right? In fact, it’s quite true, and Adam Hopkins is that kid. Adam put in some serious time on that ramp, and even figured out McTwists through back and forth email correspondence with Rob “Sluggo” Boyce. Not a bad way to learn a trick. Once he made the move west to Vancouver, its lush landscape dotted with an abundance of concrete skateparks, Adam took full advantage of the insane terrain all around and took it up another level on his skateboard.
