A little about Jade:

I commenced Surf Ski Paddling in 2020, when I wanted to trysomething new during the WA Covid Lockdown.


I had been asuccessfull Stand Up Paddler and always thought at the race events that the Surf Ski looked fast and fun.


Since my first month, Epic Kayaks WA asked if I would like to jointheir team and promote the newly designed boat V9.


It has been a crazy year, half of it paddling in different types ofevents from Ocean Marathons, Sprint Championships and Adventure Racing, to more recently White Water paddling.


Allof this made possible through being a Team Rider with EpicKayaks WA and coach Andrew Crothers.

Family Background
