Islanders: Jason Kempshall
One of the greatest things about the Canary is the great people they bring together that happen to live here and work remotely. Jason is a dedicated bodyboarder and the author of WeBodyboard, worlds' coolest portal for and about bodyboarders. He lives in Las Palmas catching the waves and delivering fresh bodyboarding news straight to the desktops.
The coolest thing about living in Las Palmas is that it's a big city right on the beach and only a short walk to more natural areas like Isleta.
