Many of you will already have seen Ocean Rodeo team rider Jérémie Tronet in this publication and others. Jérémie grew up on the French Caribbean island of Martinique, exploring all it had to offer.
Jérémie was involved with kiteboarding from the very beginning, having started with a trainer kite and a skim board and progressing onto actually making his first kite by himself. Eight years later Jérémie is just as creative, submitting beautiful videos and photographs of his kiting travels with his girlfriend Linn Svendsen.
Even though Jérémie’s focus is world travel and exploration he stays abreast of all the newest competition moves, a fact easily verified by the content he submits to print and online publications. Most likely you’ve already seen his signature “Jesus Style” walking on water trick, a move you can attempt to learn through photos and video from his website jeremietronet.com.
For 2009 Jérémie intends to continue his travels with his girlfriend and co-team rider Linn, swapping spots behind the lens in order to maintain their constant stream of high quality and interesting shots for Ocean Rodeo and our viewing enjoyment.
For more on this interesting guy, or to ask him riding-specific questions stop by the Ocean Rodeo website and introduce yourself to the Ocean Rodeo crew. —John Zimmerman
