Kiteboarding reviews by Jeremie: "It is official, I just received my new zen Jeremie Tronet signature model board.
This board is amazing, I worked with Ross (OR designer) on the perfect freestyle weapon !
It has an unbreakable wood core and the x torsion technology giving the rider the best flex and pop for all freestyle tricks !
The size is 129x39 allowing easy landings and for the first time, it has my signature on it !
(see the pictures).
I am now helping on the design of the 09 gear that I should get in few month to test the first prototypes and get the first pictures.
For the moment we are planning our trip to Venezuela with some issues regarding the plane ticket and stuff that I hope will be solved before friday when we should be flying to Margarita and then Coche.
After that I might go to Peru and back to Europe for a while to renew my passport !
Down here in Union island, life is quiet and easy ... Months pass like weeks down here and after swimming with sharks and taking beautiful kite pictures with them ( check out the next kiteboarding magazine covers u might have a surprise in a few months), swimming with turtles, I also went on a photo trip with Jean Marc (the owner of the hotel where we stay) abord his small plane. I had he chance to fly over the tobago Cays, the beautiful lagoons, private islands etc.
We had to open the door of the plane to allow me to get the best shots.
I was sitting on this tiny seat with the plane belt and my kite harness and the suicide leash to prevent me from falling from the sky.... that was pretty scary, but an amazing experience to see those islands and I got beautiful pictures ( see the pics attached).
While I was in the air, Linn was kiting and I took the opotunity to take few aerial pics of her kiting on the lagoon.
It was tricky to fly between the boats masts, and the kite, really low and close enough to get the kite big enough in the picture.
I have to get back to work, make the right selection of the thousands of pictures and film we took here ...
See u soon."
