At age 14, Capucine is already dominating the strapless freestyle scene, recently winning the Strapless Freestyle discipline for the GKA Distance Battle in 2020.
Originally from France, Capucine first got a taste for competing with slalom ski racing, however it was when the Delannoys moved to Preá, Brazil that Capucine’s passion turned to kiting.
Capucine’s father taught her to kite at 7 years old and she picked it up exceptionally quickly. Inspired by her brother Camille Delannoy, while supporting him at a kitesurfing competition in Cape Verde, Capucine knew she wanted to be World Champion and began her journey to get there.
“I just love the freedom you have kitesurfing. The feeling when you land a new trick, it’s just amazing.” – Capucine Delannoy
