Jackson Gerard: Trick Skiing is my Favorite

My name is Jackson Gerard and I am 11 years old. I started barefooting last summer. My dad taught me how to get up from a knee boards which I now know is a really hard way to learn. I joined the team at World Barefoot Center last September and I love being trained by the world’s best barefooters.

Trick skiing is my favorite. Last year, I started learning how to do tumble turns, one foot stand ups and toe holds. I am working on toe up start which is worth 400 points in the competitions. That is when you have one foot in the handle and the other foot is used to get out of the water. You can’t touch the handle with your hands, they are up in the air. I will let you know when I get that skill mastered.
