The Best in Bellingham!

Jasper Celebration

Whatcom paddlers, listen up! Ocean Paddlesports is proud to announce that Fenn athlete/sensation Jasper Mocke, will be in Bellingham this summer! Hailing from a family whose name has become synonymous with high performance surfski racing, Mocke is looking to continue his 2014 season dominance in North America. On August 20th and 21st, Jasper will be in Bellingham sharing his knowledge, passion, and expertise with the paddlers of the Pacific Northwest.

Over the last year in the international surfski scene, Jasper has been on a meteoric rise, proving he is the man to beat! In 2013, Jasper claimed several huge victories; two among them were the hotly contested Perth Doctor and the Cape Town Downwind. Building off his 2013 breakout season, Mocke, has really shown that 2014 is shaping up to be his year. So far Mocke has won three of the first four Surfski World Series Races, including the Doctor, the Mandurrah Duel, and the Defis World Cup. Mocke is also fresh off two victories at the South African Surfski Champs, winning both the singles and doubles category in Durban.

 Jasper and Sean

I personally, have learned volumes from Jasper. His flatwater technique, downwind surfing, and race day execution are second to none. And on top of raw physical ability, he also has a wealth of information to share with you about training, racing, and improving all aspects of your surfski paddling.

He has been one of my biggest inspirations over the last two years and as many of you saw in my post after my trip to South Africa, I learned volumes about racing and training from Jasper.

A lesson with one of the unstoppable surfski forces of 2014 is not something to be missed. If you are interested in joining one of his clinics on either Wednesday or Thursday (August 20th and 21st), please contact DJ.

Looking forward to visiting Bellingham soon!
