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.
