In an interview, Hočevar said:
”Making skateboards for me is a kind of relaxation, like meditation. I am very fascinated when I start from scratch, just with an idea in my head, and when I finish it, there is a final product in front of me. It brings me significantly more joy than spending hours and hours in front of a computer and playing games.Jakob Hočevarustanovitelj znamke JH_boards
He also described the usual process of making a skateboard.
”First I choose a suitable wood, most skateboards are made of veneer, and then I press it in a heated mould to get the shape of a skateboard. I then cut out the shaped veneer, roughly and finely sand it and drill holes where I finally attach the chassis. Only then I can start painting. Some customers want to keep the wooden appearance, while others want a skateboard that is decorated all over the surface.Jakob Hočevarustanovitelj znamke JH_boards
