Jackson Gerard: My Favorite Thing About Barefooting

Wednesday, January 29th, 2014

My favorite thing about barefooting is that I am always learning something new at World Barefoot Center. My goal this year is to start learning turns on shoe skis. I have watched David Small do turns at 45 mph and watching him makes my mind think that I want to become a world champion like him.

The funnest things I have learned to do are back toe holds, backwards start and backwards slalom. My favorite trick is backward toe holds. I am still working hard almost everyday on line step position and tumble turns.

I can’t wait to learn how to slalom like my coach Keith St Onge. He is the best in the world. He makes it look so easy but really it is hard. But the best thing about Keith is that he is easy to talk to and he is a great coach.

I have a lot of goals this year and I know I can reach them because I have the greatest coaches in the world.
