Jota Pons


I Started surfing when I was 8 ..10, then got into martial arts, triathlons, kiting and in 2006 SUP as an alternative when the ocean was flat. I liked it so much that I started focusing on training distances because of all the benefits it gave me, in surf, strength , meditation and contact with nature. Then I started to supsurf and have been doing it more and more...
