Big Blue Adventure

Todd Jackson, founder and Director of Big Blue Adventure, got his start producing windsurfing races in the San Francisco Bay Area, almost as a hobby, he says. After receiving his degree from U.C. Berkeley, Todd branched out into other sports, proving adept at creating and organizing events. One thing lead to another and Seventh Wave Productions (SWP) was born, now a DBA of Big Blue Adventure (BBA).
In its early days, SWP focused on the trend sports of windsurfing and inline skating.
