Growing up on the Jersey Shore, Jake is no stranger to cold, big water. As soon as he got his license, he could be found most often surfing snow blown beaches. He received an oceanography degree from the University of North Carolina at Wilmington. After college he would seek hurricanes and winter storms, looking for the next wave. Jake not only is an excellent waterman but excels at surf photography and video.
Finding Discovery Sea Kayaks while researching Washington State, he moved to the west coast to take on new challenges and hone his waterman skills as a sea kayak guide. Falling right in with the elite paddlers of Discovery Sea Kayaks Jake took to kayak training quickly.
Today Jake is a reliable and strong part of the Discovery Sea Kayak family.
