Hi I’m Jake. (Photo coming soon)
I started surfing when I was a kid – and I’m still pretty bad at it.
I’m also an avid sailor and so I’ve had to make sure I’ve got a a place for my little sailing boat, and hence much of my time is spent around the Marinas close to where I live (and inspired the name of this blog). I just love the vibe of a nice Marina – nice beach bars, fishermen and most people are just happier when they are closer to the ocean.
I’ve always travelled around the world and have always found surfing and sailing a great way to meet other travellers.
I’ve also been a aquarium geek for as long as I remember, so being in the ocean is a nice way to get my study time in, and I snorkle as much as i can to see the many fish species that live around us.
I wrote my latest post on how I got into surfing here.
