Pilsen is Czech city well known because of its brewery and tasty beer named the same as city – Pilsen. Kayakers know it not only because of beer but because of their freestyle playspot which was build few years ago and is situated right after old mill. River is flowing thru narrow channel right from mill and at the end is hydraulic construction which is making hole. Water is falling from 1,5 high to pool and creating big and powerfull hole. Local kayakers organize freestyle event every year but we couldn’t make it there last three years because it always matched our schedule. I remember it as a difficult hole where you have to be very fast and use all your strength to perfom your moves. Anyway the scores there use to be a bit lower as on the other playspots. After packing our car we drove Thursday night to Pilsen. On Friday we did some trainings and On Saturday too a place a feesyle competition. It was our first freestyle event of this year. I struggled with my rides but at the end I was able to store enough points to get first place. Peter paddled very good and his solid rides put him onto first position without hesitation. After this successful wekend we started our freestyle competiton seasson with doule victory. I hope the rest of the seasson will follow in similar mode :D
Wish us luck!
