A FRIENDSHIP BUILT ON STOKE FOR THE SPORT.
Originally from a small colonial town in Massachusetts, Ian Scott and Jake Caster grew up just miles from one another. They met through their older sisters and quickly connected through their love of the lake. Ian began wake surfing in 2012 when his water sport's instructor introduced the sport to him. Ian was mesmerized by the sport and knew that his buddy, Jake, would also take an interest in this new phenomenon. It was then that the two boys emerged in friendly competition and gained influence by seeing potential in one another.
It was the inspiration from the professional level that Ian and Jake began competing globally. In 2015, Ian won the World Championship of Wake Surfing in Arizona and Jake then continued to win in the following years. Jake lead the professional ranks and even won First place in the World Wake Surfing Championship of 2017.
Their styles vary, but passions overlap in their desire to coach and help others find their passion for the water. Growing up in New England breeds 4-season athletes and Jake and Ian always found their way to a board. If that meant skateboarding, snowboarding or indoor wake surfing during the cold winter months, anything would get these two geared up for the summer lake season. Jake and Ian soon realized that anyone can relate to the invigorating feeling of gliding across the water, and that feeling can exist within you too.
“The thing about the ritual morning plunge, the entry into water that provides the small existential moment, is its total privacy. Swimming is between me and the water, nothing else. The moment the water encloses me, I am, gratefully, alone.”
