Jessie Kilgour

Sport: Surfing, Snowboarding, Kiteboarding

Hometown: Golden, BC in the winters & Cape Hatteras, NC for the rest

Jessie is happiest when she’s in the ocean or in the mountains with a board under her feet. While at University Jessie was looking for a summer job, and a summer sport to complement her love of snowboarding.  So she moved to Cape Hatteras, North Carolina to work at REAL Watersports and learn to kiteboard and to surf. Once Jessie got the hang of kiting she began coaching and has been captivated by the sport and the ocean ever since.  Jessie is now the Head Coach at REAL Watersports and spends her summers on the water kiting, surfing, coaching, and volunteering with the Water Rescue Team. She’s a true waterwoman and an inspiration.  In the winter Jessie plays in the mountains Ski Patrolling, snowboarding, and volunteering with the local Search and Rescue group.  Be it in emergency situations or coaching Jessie loves helping others, and is stoked to share the sports she loves with others.

Words of Wisdom
“To be in the ocean and feel its power through every wave became addictive. The ocean’s constant movement and unpredictable moods were as mesmerizing as the ever changing mountains I already loved. I was hooked.”

Favorite Sensi bikini:
The Claire top & Emma bottom, and the Colleen top & Lindsy bottom.  Both combos are bomb proof in the surf.

Favorite sport:
It depends on the day.  Kiting, surfing, and snowboarding are all equally challenging and equally rewarding sports.  I’ve had days of complete frustration with each, but the amazing days always outweigh the frustrating ones.

Favorite place to visit:
Anywhere there are great waves, wind, snow, friends, or family.

Goals:
To stay happy and healthy.  To keep learning, progressing, and exploring, and to leave things better than I found them.

Coolest things I have seen while traveling:
Fully breaching hump back whales silhouetted by the sunset while surfing in Puerto Rico.
