After graduating from the University of Colorado Jon decided to devote his life to snowkiting/kiteboarding and spend everyday he could to improving himself and his students. He has worked with IKO snow and water examiners to refine teaching methods to the safest and most effective to date.
His main concern during every lesson is that his students are having fun no matter what level they are at. Jon has a very very patient and supportive teaching style. He has taught thousands of lessons between Colorado, Hawaii, North Dakota, South Carolina, Utah, and Ecuador since 2007.
His experience with kites started on land which then transitioned into the snow and now water. Every winter he can be found pioneering new snowkite locations and getting his powder fix, while the rest of his time enjoying the consistent winds and warm water Maui has to offer.
