After competing in the Professional Windsurfing Association Tour for five years, Jace made a transition to filmmaking, partnering with Johnny DeCesare of Poor Boyz Productions where he helped produce many influential action watersport films, including “The Windsurfing Movie” 1&2. He coached Kai Lenny in windsurfing and Poor Boyz Productions documented the beginnings of his professional career, culminating with the Red Bull film, “Paradigm Lost”.
Jace served as Producer/Director of Red Bull’s most successful web series of all time “Who is JOB 2.0-6.0”, following the antics of professional surfer Jamie OʻBrien. Recently, he has been working as the Principle Water Cinematographer for the Apple TV series “Make or Break”. Jace’s latest film, “Broken Molds”, is the origin story of windsurfing which has received many film festival awards, including a Best Director award for himself. Jace has acquired some of the most intimate sport shots in some of the most aggressive water conditions.
