Meet Bethany! Bethany moved to Jackson in the early 90’s from Maine where she enjoyed surfing in the ocean. She enjoys the mountain life but missed the ocean so when she started wake surfing 7 years ago, she felt right at home riding the endless wave. Bethany has worked as a snowboard instructor and adaptive ski instructor at Jackson Hole Mountain Resort for many years, so coaching people and sharing her love for her favorite sports is her passion. “I really enjoy teaching women camps and kids camps and meeting new people from around the world,” she said. In the off-season she works at a local school teaching kids with special needs.
Bethany has been recreating on Palisades Lake since 2000, where she learned to water ski and wakeboard with friends, and still seems to be out on the water everyday surfing in the summer. “It’s my favorite place to be,” she said. “I’m so excited to teach and inspire people to try surfing.”
Bethany is First Aid and CPR certified and has over 20 years of coaching and teaching a variety of outdoor sports.
