Raised surfing the playful waves of Seaside Reef and trying to emulate his style hero Rob Machado, Jackson is a standout in any line up. Hanging with the heavies of pro surfing at 16 isn't easy, but for Jackson it's all about being stoked on the fun and friends that come with surfing. Jackson loves to charge big waves and has earned some street cred for knocking out his four front teeth on the reef Pipeline at the age of 14 and coming back the past two seasons hunting for more barrels. When not chasing waves from Trestles to Baja, Jackson loves to fish, and hang with his family. Learning to shape surfboards from his dad, has him often in the shaping bay working on his fun shapes quiver that find their way on every trip. With no lack of creative ideas and drive, Jackson has developed, coordinated and produced FISH 101 The Movie, along with two separate Surfer Magazine editorial features.
