Louis Duplan Fribourg
What are your hobbies?
Water Skiing is for sure one of my favorite hobbies. I also do a lot of snow skiing and play basketball with my friends. In a general way, I like to create and learn but one of my favorite hobbies is to spend time with my family and especially my friends.
What was the reason for starting with waterskiing?
Waterski is a family sport. My mom and my grand-father were doing it at the beach during vacation then my mom met my dad and started to waterski together. My parents put me on their ski when I was really young and at 2 years old I started waterskiing. I was skiing with my family as a hobby and I started to really liked it. So, I wanted to ski more and more in order to have more fun and improve. I started to compete and from line to line I am here today.
Where do you train?
I am from Grenoble in the Alps. I am training at home for 6 months and the 6 other months at Jack Travers ski school in Florida, USA.
What would you recommend a beginner?
Have fun, everything is possible when you work for it. I would say that getting the basis of every event is the most important point.
What do you think/feel shortly before you take off during a jump event?
Reminding me what I have to do and how I have to do it then just do it.
What song/kind of music pushes you to your limits?
Rap and Hip-Hop music. I am a big fan and consumer of this music even if I like a bit house and rock music.
