- 10+ years as a experienced kiteboard instructor
- Previously a windsurfer
- IKO Qualified

Jay is the one of the most experienced Kiteboard instructor in Squamish. A reformed windsurfer, he has been enjoying wind sports at the Squamish Spit since 1992, and kiteboarding there since 2005.
Alarmed at the trend towards hi-volume, pack-em-in lessons, Jay created Sea to Sky Kiteboarding with a one-at-a-time model. A little more expensive, but a lot more effective.
Need a lesson at the Spit, Jay is your man. Teaching you everything you need to know from launching and landing to kiting and jumping, Jay’s successful teaching style and advanced technology using radio helmets will have you independently kiteboarding before you know it.

Bloggins -side kick – Kiteboarding Instructors Mascot
- Qualified to be adorable
- Man’s best friend
- Fave spot – in the sun
Hound of renown. The scruffiest and longest dog in Baja. We measured. 3 to 1 aspect ratio. Incredible.
He is a friendly little fella. Make sure you say hello, he will be running up and down the Spit waiting for you the end of the lesson.
Jordan – kiteboarding instructors
- Four years of back to back season kiteboarding
- Ski and Wakeboard instructor
- IKO Qualified
- Face spot – Brazil
Jordan started kiteboarding at Squamish in 2016. An accolade to Jay’s teaching and Jordan’s previous experience of wakeboarding, she picked up kiteboarding extremely quickly and took her IKO Instructor training course in La Ventana, Mexico.
Originally from the UK, Jordan is unlikely to be heading back anytime soon. When she is not on the water, it must be winter, which means she swaps her kiteboard for ski’s and rips down Whistler, where she honed her skills as an instructor.
With her active lifestyle and laid back style, Jordan will have you up on your kiteboard in no time or jumping high before you know it!
