Brilliant fun, Jamie is a fantastic teacher and will have you up and wake boarding in no time. Was great 'hanging out' with him and getting some travel and life advice as well.

Jamie is the best sports teacher I've ever had, we went on a group of 6 people and he had the patience and dedication for all of us regardless of our habilities. At the end of the day we all got better at wakeboarding. If I ever go again to the island I'm definitely stopping by to do more wakeboarding... More

Jamie is a really nice person and a great teacher. Smart, funny and gentle he won't let you leave unsatisfied with your session. And don't forget to grab some raw dishes or smoothies after boarding!
