Zeb LandBoard

He’s called Zebulon Jakub nicknamed Crabzebula and to family crabnebula . Born in western Massachusetts and currently living in North Conway NH, USA.  Currently he’s  been teaching snow kiting/kiteboarding in the Northeast USA for 10 year (2005-2015).
His education from Green Mountain College, receiving a Bachelors of Science in Adventure Recreation (2001) as well as taken many educational courses in the psychology of teaching and education for adults and children. Other educational certifications and trainings include: Level 2 IKO Snowkite Instructor, Level 1 Power Kite and Kiteboarding Instructor, American Mountain Guide Association Rock Instructor, Single Pitch Instructor Provider, and Climbing Wall Instructor Provider, hold a current P2 USHPA paragliding pilot certification, EMT and OEC medical technician and current Wilderness First Responder, and AIARE Level 2 avalanche training to name some but not all of my past education.
Zebulon’s experiences have brought him to just near all states in the USA for snow kiting and adventuring, as well as Canada, France, and Mexico.
He certainly feels strongly connected to a community of snow kiter’s world wide and have found my involvement with IKON (since 2011) to be one heck of an incredible ride.  Zebulon is super glad to be a part of a young company with no limits to innovation and passion for Riding Different.

So If you are ever in his neck of the woods here is how you can contact him.
