Q&A WITH JEANNE
What is your favorite kite?
Naish Pivot 8 meters.
What is your favorite kitespot?
When it’s on, Bloubergstrand in Cape Town for sure. It’s a viby spot, good kickers, strong and dense winds that makes me fly. And of course beautiful landscapes.
What is your local kitespot?
Saint-Idesbald in Belgium the club is called “The Kyc”.
What are your hobbies besides kiteboarding?
I’m an active person so any physical activity that makes me feel I did sports is fine for me. I also love traveling and doing any kind of extreme things that gives me that adrenaline. Shredding the snow in the winter is also something I really enjoy.
What is your favorite trick?
The most sensational trick I did so far was the late backroll, I’m still working on the landing though.
Which rider do you look up to?
Good question, the level is insanely good these days. I am pretty inspired and impressed by a good friend of mine, Francesca Maini, who just did the first double loop as a woman.
