We met Ludovic Jossin at the airport of Gimpo, Seoul and hooked up for a quick interview. The French lives already since years in the Spain windsurfing mekka Tarifa and is one of the head testers for Loft Sail. Jossin is one of the sailors, who are more than 25 years on board, he won the French Slalom title in 2009, the Spanish title in 2010 and made it on the sensational 4th position at the first PWA Slalom stop in Mui Ne, Vietnam. And he just missed the podium by just a point. We would say that Ludovic Jossin, aka “”Ludo” definitely found the key to show up most of the time in the top group at the first mark. He had improved in light wind conditions, he was not in favour while the past seasons. Or are the boards his secret? The French is the only one who has registered boards from different companies: the two smaller boards are from Patrik Diethelm and the big board is a Starboard.
Read more, why the mid 30ty old French – he will turn 35 in December – is hungry to make it further up in the near future. And, Ludo is just 180 cm tall and does not carry 95 kg around. Instead he is focused, talks many languages and likes to cook!
C7: How many times did you compete at Jinha, South Korea?
Ludo Jossin: To me it´s the third time coming to South Korea. I have good and bad memories. Last year , in 2010, I could win pricemoney, making it on the 15th position overall. But once I had to pay 1000 US $ fur my excess baggage and had to book a new flight last year. So I straight invested all the pricemoney I had won in the days before. But that´s life. I am very positive person and always try to live the life as good as possible!
C7: Do you like travelling to Asia to the events?
Ludo Jossin: Yes, definitely. Mui Ne is one of my favourite spots so far. But Jinha, South Korea is amazing in terms of organisation. Everything is ready for us. An extraordinary great logistic. Thanks to Mister Han.
