Jesse Davis has been in the water on some sort of board for almost as long as he can remember.
“I caught my first wave in third grade. Today is my thirtieth birthday and I have, literally, been doing this ever since,” said Davis, who grew up in Northwest Florida. Besides surfing all over the place, Davis spent years traveling the country as a professional skim boarder.
Recently he made his way home to Northwest Florida where he has set up shop on 30A to share his adventurous water-bound spirit with others. Last month, he and his business partner, Charles Kolopanas, started 30A Adventures, which offers surf and skim boarding lessons, paddle-board tours, kayak and bike rentals, custom skateboards and more.
