The name is Jonathan Howell, I live in Naples, FL. I have been skimming since I was 10, competing since I was 15, and went pro when I was 18 or 19. I'm 22 now, so it's definitely been a long haul and I love it. I just want to get a shoutout and thanks to my parents for all their support, my friend Ryan Rataj because he never stopped skimming with me unlike everyone else who fell off the earth.
