My name is Jacques – as you might guess I’m a nut for watersports. I was born in Canada and moved to Colorado when I was quite young.
In my younger days I was pretty cocky about my abilities, but when I started teaching kayaking and SUP I realized I had to take safety much more seriously. I’ve done lots of research into life jackets, life vests, helmets and whatever equipment you can think of.
While we use outside writers to produce the first draft of texts, Jacques has the final approval before anything is published.
I’m no expert in designing websites but with some help from a nephew (thanks, Chris!) I think this site has turned out pretty nice.
Anyway, I hope you find the recommendations here useful, and I wish you a lot of safe enjoyment on the water!
