Name: Jason Blanchard
Hometown: Sept-Iles, Quebec, Canada
I started kiteboarding with my dad when I was 12 years old. Since then it quickly became a real passion of mine and has pretty much taken over my life! After finishing school, I have been focusing 100% of my time on kiteboarding, training and competing worldwide.
Define your style and what aspects of Kiteboarding do you enjoy the most.
I'm definitely a freestyle rider. I enjoy the fact that they're no limits to the sport. You can always jump higher, go faster, add a grab or spin to your moves. It's is limitless!You'll be riding Core kites and promoting KITEAID as well this season. Why is that?
I am super stoked to be part of the CORE Kiteboarding and KITEAID teams. They have been a great support. This year I've moved onto the CORE International Team and really looking forward to competing at an international level. I will also be promoting KITEAID at events that I plan on attending this year. If you need some assistance with any repairs, come see me!
