Jack Mace

Hey there! I'm Jack Mace, the Surf Buyer at Born and raised in Washington, I developed a love for the outdoors and water activities like surfing during my childhood summers spent on the water and in the mountains. My passion for surfing grew while attending Western Washington University in Bellingham, where I'd hit the waves at local spots like La Push and Westport Jetty with friends on weekends.

After moving back to Seattle, I worked as a sailing instructor at my cousin's rental shop on Lake Union before joining the evo family in 2012. Starting in customer service, I eventually found my way to the merchandising team, where I could turn my passion for the outdoors and surfing into a fulfilling career as the Surf Buyer.

I live in Seattle with my wife, our two sons, and our pup Mac.
