Mike // Hoppe
2006 Rider of the Year
Location: San Francisco, California
Favorite Riding Spot: Lombard Street, San Francisco, CA
How did you get started?
Caught the snowboard bug as a teenager and then ordered an alpha 112 off the web. I was lucky to live close by Freebord Mfg. and got some support from Tim Seward, Steen, etc.
How long have you been riding?

Freebord 85, trucks tight with back tighter and low rocker with back lower.
