When the waves are on, look out for Jimmy to be among the top contenders.
2019 Molokai 2 Oahu Champion, James Casey, is a Sydney based athlete and coach who has created a name for himself in the stand up paddling and foiling scene. Longer downwind races is where Jimmy’s passion lie, with a world record 213km downwind foil completed in 2022 from Bawley Point to Sydney.
Prior to COVID he was travelling the world racing in downwind events and coaching for Moon Tours in the Maldives. James took the time at home as an opportunity to run local foil camps and create an online coaching community, the Coach Casey Club. The club is for all SUP and Foil enthusiasts that want to progress their skills to the next level. Whether it be learning to downwind, wing or surf foil or push your SUP racing and SUP surfing to the next level the Coach Casey Club is for anyone with internet access meaning no matter where you are you can get coaching from Jimmy.
As we emerge out of COVID James is looking to continue growing the Coach Casey Club and the local foil camps but bring more of the Foil and SUP camps overseas. He will be in the Maldives in 2023 with Moon Tours and there are a few other camps being organised in some epic locations.
Competitively James is keen to travel for both SUP and Foil as well as competing in SUP Surf contests while combining it with coaching clinics.
