Jake has been kiteboarding for around 8 years. He started at the ripe young age of 11. Over his years of riding Jake has ridden for large kite companies including Best Kiteboarding. He has been teaching for a little over a year now, but don't let this fool you. This kid has more kite knowledge and training then most people twice his age! This can be derived from his year traveling for kiteboarding high school. Yes you read right kiteboarding high school! Jake attended World Class Kiteboarding Academy located in Hood River, Oregon. This school allows young promising riders to participate in a highly competitive academic and kiteboarding environments! While in attendance he visited and rode in Peru, Costa Rica, and Panama. Jake's primary riding is wakestyle, and his ideal kiting scenario would be a nice pond with some kickers and sliders.
