"Not only am I happy to have Jake as a Coach for our paddle surf weekends and camps in Tofino; but I am now working with Jake to help me take my paddle surfing to the next level. I have spent a lifetime being involved with high level sport and adventure; I understand the value of having a good coach and instructor that can set the proper foundation of skills for you and then to progress those skills to the next level with a proper individualized plan. Jake is a passionate, life long learner and committed to his own surfing progression which in turn makes him a great coach and someone the you not only want to spend time with on the ocean but someone who will push your skill set forward and inspire a love for paddle surfing and the ocean. Book a lesson with Coach Jake!"

" I am honoured to know Jake as my SUP surf coach and friend.  Jake is one of those truly authentic Waterman who has found his passion for SUP surfing and coaching others. With his guidance and expertise, you will definitely build your confidence catching waves and improve your form and technique. No matter what level of experience you have SUP surfing Jake is able to determine immediately where your SUP surf strengths are and how you can improve. His enthusiasm for this amazing sport and his respect for the ocean is inspiring. I highly recommend him as SUP surf coach and mentor and I look forward to continuing my training with him in Tofino and joining him on one of his tropical SUP surf camps."
