  • Player Bio

    As the fire of the glory days of the UFOS (Sonoma CA) diminished, from the ashes rises the Phoenix. In this case there are two Phoenixes, the “G Bros”, Jake Gauther and his brother Matt. Their passion for play give hope to a new generation of players and to the sport as a whole.

    Jacob is a well rounded player who is at his best in the wind. His style is a throw-back to the “Shred or Die” school of freestyle. His game consists of against-the-spin moves, tight flying catches and multiple spins, all in copious amounts. Keep an eye on him as he continues his rise to the top of the sport.

  • Career Highlights

    Jake won FPAW open pairs in 2006 and 2007 with brother, Matt Gauthier. He also took the top title at the Washington State Turboshred Jam-Off in 2002; knocked Dave Schiller and team out of co-op finals in 98. Won ‘Maximum Gitus Ratio’ at Tampico 96

  • How I Started

    My friend met Mike Esterbrook introduced us to Freestyle for the first time. Eventually we caught the fever and began jamming with Mike. The rest is history.
