Jake grew up sailing on the East End of Long Island in Napeague New York. This quickly became his training ground. He began taking yearly and bi-yearly trips to Bonaire, which is a paradise for windsurfers. At the age of fourteen, Jake began working at Napeague for the local windsurfing business setting up sails and boards, and providing lessons. When he was 20 he managed the windsurfing rental outlet, which gave in further to his windsurfing addiction.
Now he spends a lot of his spare time hanging out with and helping the ABK Boardsports crew as they tour the Caribbean and US. Jake has not since looked back, and has continued to try and pursue every breath of wind out there, just like George.
Over the last 2 years Jake has began taking up the discipline of freestyle and he landed his first Vulcan last March. This has opened up a new world of windsurfing for him. Jake now dedicates himself strictly to the freestyle discipline.
Over the next year he hopes to land his first spock and continue to improve.
The sky is the limit!
