Jahmal Williams Talks Keys to Inspiration & Creativity

Following up on Dreamer, Adam Abada interviews Jahmal Williams for Quartersnacks. This latest bit of Q&A provides the full background story Jahmal’s latest creative project, and offers some great insight into how he maintains his creative flow.

How do you keep it so diverse and forward-thinking? You also have kids and run Hopps, of course. And there’s a pandemic.

I guess — I have a burning desire.

A burning desire for what?

For the stoke! I love being stoked. I can’t get stoked out on too many things other than skating. That feeling — I want to keep getting that as long as I can. I try to stay mentally and physically healthy, number one. I started going to a Buddhist meditation center up on 23rd Street for the past four years or so. Once the pandemic kicked in, I started doing online sessions. I got more into that to keep myself balanced. You can burn out and get stressed out. Having that mental balance and being able to regulate yourself helps. I want to be physically able to skate and do the things that I love, so I try to eat healthy, stretch and do the things I got to do to stay limber. Keep everything in moderation.

Alf was also a pro-skater back in the day.

He started skating when he was 10 and turned pro when he was just 16 years old.

He thinks that skateboarding has somehow helped him be successful in business.

“Skateboarding, it’s for the most part, a really inconsistent sport, which means you definitely have to have some patience and some perseverance…It’s allowed me to think outside the box and apply that ‘out of the box’ thinking to run my business”

Redbull’s Good Work Series features skater-owned and skater-operated businesses.
