Koby might only come in at 4’8 in height, but when he’s in the water he is fearless. He already has sessions at outer reef bombies under his belt and is always a standout when the waves get big. Koby has spent the last 12 months focusing on developing as a surfer by chasing waves to Indo, Hawaii and around Australia. The future is bright for this young grommet and once his body grows, his perfect technique will be coupled with power to match. With standout sessions already clocked at Backdoor Pipeline and Haleiwa, Koby has already tasted some of the world’s most intense and dangerous waves. When he’s not in the water, you will find Koby skating, riding dirt bikes, spearfishing or fishing. With father and renowned south coast shaper Vern Jackson looking after his equipment, Koby has the luxury of riding the best boards and getting instant feedback from Vern and his deep knowledge on board design.
