Millau by Nina Halasova

Our week in Millau was awesome! The weather was “kayak friendly” so we could train two times a day. The temperature during most of the days was about 10 degrees so we could sleep in the car and didn’t need accommodation. Sometimes we even ran around in short sleeves and got sunburn. Simply amazing!
The hole in which we trained in seems easier than it is. You need to push very hard to manage a trick and stick it. I think it was a very good training especially for the upcoming Championship.
On the first day we had little starting problems but the day after we were getting better. We could see the improvements in our rides. It was a very powerful hole and you need to do all the tricks fast and with 100% physical strength.
On the sixth day I took a break because my back was quite sore. It was very painful and I was not able to sleep. Saturday I paddled again but was careful not to hurt myself even more.
I discovered new skills and hope to apply them soon. We really enjoyed the training there very much and we look forward to visiting this place again.
After one week we went back home for a while to fill us up with new energy but now we are already thinking of other places to go...

See you on the water!
