The Rise of Leon Jamaer


This year I really want to finish in the top 5 on the PWA, it’s really hard to say. I know I need to work on my starboard tack riding, and my jumping on starboard tack is just rubbish, but as we know most of the PWA contests are port tack anyway. I probably need to train my onshore waveriding, even though it’s not that much fun for me!

I think I also need to learn to be a little more consistent. In free sailing I dont want to waste a wave doing half hearted turns which also means I crash a lot. In contests its sometimes a bit different if you want to win your heat.

I think I can do my best when it’s really good conditions, if it’s waist high waves in Pozo then anything can happen, but if it’s really good I think I can get good results. I like conditions where your performance isn’t limited. For example, when the waves are small you can’t jump high or really do too much, but when you have proper ramps one person can do a high backloop, but if you’re really good you can do an even higher one.
