Profile of Danni Bay Jakobsen DEN64 / M.Sc. Engineering student / 24 yr old / Living in Copenhagen / Born in Seoul, South Korea
Born in South Korea - living in Copenhagen
I was born in the capital of South Korea, Seoul, but adopted when I was only a baby. I grew up in Skive, where I started windsurfing when I was 14-yrs old. I was eager to learn how to master the small boards and sails and my biggest motivation was wave windsurfing! I started doing all disciplines and spend most of my time on Formula and Slalom.
Nothing beats a slalom race
Ever since I started windsurfing I have been fascinated by the speed and adrenalin you get, when you are approaching the buoy with full speed! I love the intensity and combination of strength, tactics and good maneuverability!
I am currently studying my Master degree within engineering, but doing an exchange semester thus taking electives at Copenhagen Business School. Beside, I am windsurfing, working out, working and trying to keep all the pieces together – oh, and travelling!
