INTERVIEW Jeff McKee with Sina Jacobsen 2022

When was the copycats club established?

The idea stated in the Winter of 2018.

Why did you create it? If you was going on all big accounts for wakeboarding brands/magazines and you really just saw mens wakeboarding on it but if you visit the girls accounts they also created amazing content. After doing it three years, it’s easy to understand. Let me explain, if you get a pop up ad and click on it and a mens video or a girls wakeboarding video pops up, what would you first click on? Let me know if I’m wrong but I think a woman clicks on the womens video and the men on the mens video. All the big accounts are managed by men so you can’t even be angry that girls don’t get the attention they deserve. It’s the personal interest of people and we just need more girls behind the scenes. But definitely something is happening because it’s starting to chang a little bit.

Is there a limit to the amount of members or can anyone join?

Copycatsclub is for womens wakeboarding, if you are making laps around a cable or cruising behind a boat you are in the club doesn’t matter what level. Its all about having fun together, supporting each other on every level and living the passion.

The CCC Magazine is AWESOME. How often do you plan to release issues? How much time goes into each issue?

The Magazine this year is a test to see if it works out. I’m planning twice a year. It’s a process over the whole year. Planning, Themes, Advertising, promoting and designing is all on me. My mom helps me sending out when I’m in America I’m really thankful for it. I really have fun with it and really would love to continue but right know need to look for a sponsor to continue.

Who are the top 3 female riders to keep eyes on in 2022?

I feel like Top 3 of female riders is the wrong term. I feel we are looking for a new decate.

Who are the top female riders in boat, park and streets to keep eyes on in 2022 -

Claudia Pagnini definitely brings park to another level. Jamie Lopina killed it in boat and park and is my overall this year! New and killing it is young gun Rivers Hedrick. Anna Nikstad, Julia Rick, Meagan Ethell and Lisa Baloo continue every year on a high level of contest and content what is so impressive!

Elena Bodi, Joelina Gerards and Mary Morgan Howell having tricks in there pockets and I’m excited to see what they going to do with it the next years.

Hot in having fun and showing how fun it is to ride as a girl gang - Dudettes in Lithuania, the girls in Poland and the young guns in Australia are my favorite girl gangs.

Don’t sleep on the streets because riding there is another level than in circles in the Wakepark. Coti Scaglia, Hannah Mennega, Anne Freyer and I would put my name on that list. Would love to see in 2023 a little bit more creative tricks and qualitative content and less solo hits for Instagram.

Tell us about the design of the CCC board - why do you feel it’s the best design for girls to ride in the park?

I would say it’s the perfect board for any girl who loves to have fun on the water and want to progress her riding. And maybe also loves pastel colors. Haha

Where are your top 3 favorite places to ride it?

Valdosta Wake Compound, Wakepark

Triolago, Aschheim Wake and Thai Wake Park, Rahinge Wakepark, 313 and and and.... Sorry can’t get it down to three but I also have a lot more on my list that I want to visit.

Did you attend art school or just natural talent? The board art and boot design is 🔥on all the women products this year, and the colors / layouts of each mag are super unique!

Thank you so much! I grew up with drawing everyday and got in 7 class art as a main subject like math and language until I finished school. I’m always attracted to colors sometimes I’m scared of myself how much, haha.

When and how did you (personally) find your way into Wakeboarding?

With 13 I started snowboarding and I didn’t think there is anything better out there until I got into wakeboarding when I was 18. I felt like I can ride powder and park by the same time! Still feeling like that!

What’s your current “home spot”?

I would say Valdosta Wake Compound

What inspires you the most? For wakeboarding and all the creative stuff?

Snowboarding definitely for riding. Creative stuff is anything that crosses me in my daily life.

What draws you to winching? Do you think it is worth all the effort that goes into it?

Hell yeah it’s worth it! First you have a mission with your friends together what is already so worth it! Because there is always a good story to tell after a trip. And landing a trick in the streets feels like you really did it and you will be hyped forever for it.

When is the Sewercats 2 dropping?

Dropped on YouTube!

We heard your Fiance is a rapper and wrote a hit song about YOU called Love Letter to Bill? What’s it like to be in a relationship with a rap artist?

Man hope the world gonna see his talent soon because I’m so proud of him!
