Welcome back to Paddlecast!
My guest today is one of the most experienced (and opinionated) paddlers on the planet. Over the past 15 years, Paul “Jacko” Jackson been a pro kiter, paddler, foiler, team manager, retail store owner and now co-founder of a board brand: ONE Ocean Sports, which is producing some of the most innovative race boards in the world.
In this episode, we had a good chat about building a board brand, the endless saga of Olympic paddletics and how to make racing more interesting and exciting… → READ MORE
I sat down with Angie Jackson and chatted about her recovery from injury, her crazy first race and what really gets said on the water ;-)

I’m very excited to share the second episode of Paddlecast with you today because it features my new favourite race – The Yukon River Quest – as well as a guy I’ve got the world of respect for, Bart de Zwart.

I’m excited to be starting this new project and look forward to sharing some interesting paddle stories with you. And I’m very excited that the first episode features my good friend Casper Steinfath.

But even through all those (often lengthy) articles, I feel like I’ve always had more to share.
The world of stand up paddling is an amazing place. There are so many interesting ideas, stimulating stories and colourful characters in this great community. But most of those voices aren’t being heard in an age of Facebook headlines and Instagram Stories where we rarely get to look beneath the surface.
So that’s why I’m creating a long-form podcast called Paddlecast. → READ MORE
