About Coach Jake

Working with others keeps me in the water and extremely motivated to advance my own knowledge, skills and technique. Learning about this sport (lifestyle) and then passing it along is the best job in the world.

Progression is my obsession. So is technique and the various roads to get there – how each student has their own path to understanding fascinates me.

For me, coaching is about delivering the best experience possible. Having been a high level athlete most of my life, I know the impacts of good coaching and want to bring that to SUP surfing.

Understanding the value and importance of good coaching is what motivates me to give my best to every student.

Helping you through to the next phase of your journey; introducing and creating good habits, correcting inefficient ones, and sharpening the tools you have already got, is what working with me is about.
