Not only does Jordan Hoffart eat, sleep and breathe skateboarding, he lives it — both literally and figuratively. The Canadian native made the move South to Vista, California some years ago and naturally required a place to call home. With no established credit, Hoffart chose a foreclosure due to the agreeable price and amount of yard space. With the help of his experienced friends Josh Hawkins and Kyle Berard, the house was completely gutted and built around Hoffarts eclectic personality and profession.
Fully skate-able from front to back, the property sees a mini-quarter pipe, lips, ledges, kickers, a huge bowl that took around six weeks to build, and the “Canadian mud lump.” Moving inside, the home is chock full of both Hoffart and his wife’s personality, repurposing and giving new life to age-old findings. As Hoffart puts it, his favorite pieces are all “something with purpose from another life” and include a skateboard from the ’50s with steel wheels, a railroad tie now used as a mantle, subway tiles that now fill his washroom, and his most prized piece of furniture, a armoire that used to belong to Tony Hawk. Watch the video above to see Jordan take a rip through his unique home that skateboarding built. – Hypebeast TV
