    Default Hop King

    This has gone too long uncommented upon. What is this trech shit?



    Branding looks well budget. They only make one beer. They sponsor a whole bunch of desperate instagramers and randomers.

    Is this really what UK skateboarding has become?

    So bad. The rich person's 2018 equivalent of a bedroom t-shirt company.

    Either them or somebody like them is always in that Vague magazine too. It's all incredibly boring.

    When somebody came up with the idea of having a craft beer brewer associating with skateboarding I bet the rest of that focus group got told they could go home for the day.

    That's not unusual nowadays, I have never heard of most good skaters in the UK.

    I don't think Hop King advertise in Vague.

    Last night I was chatting to a mate about how I felt uncomfortable with the amount of online bullying Decunha gets but that said, lets open the flood gates. Hop King sponsor Decunha, which speaks volumes about them and what how they're attempting to enter the skateboarding market.
