Jason Gauthier-Head Judge was first introduced to Flyboarding in 2013. Having a full time job he really had no interest in competing at first, but seeing the level of flying increase and the game changing he felt he had to get involved. In 2014, Jason competed in the first North American Flyboard Championship in Toronto. In Toronto he placed in the top eight which was followed by three World Championships with his highest placement being at the 2015 World Championships in Dubai, with an overall finish of 5th place.

For now he can’t say he is done competing, him judging  is in no way a foreshadowing of that. However, he wanted to see a competition judged from a competitor’s point of view. Jason looks forward to sharing his experiences and expertise in competitions and  he is excited in helping provide a top notch product and experience for all involved.

Adrian Boucher-Judge who comes from Kelowna in the Okanagan Valley of British Columbia, Canada, grew up surrounded by vineyards and mountains but most importantly around some of the most incredible lakes in Canada. There is not much more a hydro-sport enthusiast could ask for.

Paul Bulka-Judge is an experienced athlete and is part of the team that masterminded Flyboards first viral video with Devin Supertramp (YouTube famous videographer) in 2013.
