SAS Hurley Classic 2016

Posted by Peter Csonka / Nov 25 '16 / 5 Comments

Hurley’s kayak event is one of the oldest kayaks event. This year it was 27th year in a row! I've been at this event few times but it seems every year it's going bigger and bigger. This time there were more than 160 competitors just in freestyle! That is totally awesome and I am glad to see tat freestyle is still alive at least in UK. We came to UK in advance. The water levels for Hurley’s weir wasn't optimal so we moved to Nottingham to HPP. I really enjoyed paddling at HPP because it has nice stabile deep hole where…

Polish kayak freestyle championships

Posted by Peter Csonka / Sep 27 '16 / 5 Comments

 This weekend there was probably one of the last freestyle event for us. Summer just end so the freestyle season. I never was paddling in Cracow so this was a great opportunity for it. We came two days in advance to get use to this specific hole. I can say it is quite difficult and very powerful to paddle. It took me few trainings to find best way how to throw the moves. It wasn't difficult only for women but for mens as well. After four training sessions my body was totally sore.  Our polish friend Bartosz and his family invited…

Austrian freestyle and cross championship in Graz

Posted by Peter Csonka / Sep 5 '16 / 5 Comments

One of our favorites play spots and also competitions of the year is in Graz. The local kayakers are so enthusiastic and really loving the sport, so they always made such a nice events where you just feel great. It's not only about competition but also about meeting all the friends and have really good time while kayaking. To get ready we left a bit earlier for some training. To get use to the hole you always need some time so we rather leave sooner and have some easy trainings as to come to late and being in stress if everything…

Lipno Devils Extreme Race

Posted by Peter Csonka / Aug 28 '16 / 5 Comments

Lipno area is well known amongst  paddlers from around whole world because of its white water. Water is released from dam and it is runable only by high flow which happens few times a year. Last week we and hundreds of other paddlers headed to Lipno Dam area. Water was released whole week but weekend was special as they put even more water out to river. Vltava’s section from Lipno dam is probably one of my most favorite whit water river section.The atmosphere there is amazing as well! I don’t like many people on the water at the same time but…

Lienz freestyle and cross

Posted by Peter Csonka / Jul 19 '16 / 5 Comments

Lienz is one of my favorite place in Austria. It is situated in a valley surrounded by glorious mountains. Me and Peter we visited it almost every year since 2005. It is well known amongst paddlers for its whitewater rivers but it hosted some international freestyle events like European Championships as well. The playspot on Drau river was rebuilt this winter because high water moved some stones and destroyed it. Now it is a very strong hole with two shoulders. We did one training on Friday. I was very surprised by its power and it was a big challenge for me.…

Last week me and Peter, we organized a kayaking event with freestyle, cross and sprint races, which was part of a festival at our slalom course.

Me & Peter we took the first positions.  Next day we organized a kayak cross and sprint race. In this events we couldn't take part as we organized it just by ourselves. I can say…

Posted by Peter Csonka / Jul 3 '16 / 5 Comments

Last week we spent in Wildalpen, Austria. Many kayakers know this place for it's great river Salza. But not many know that it has one of the best hole for freestyle kayaking. Of course the river has to have right level as for everything but when it does than it is just perfect! Every year Helli-Welli host austrian's freestyle kayaking event. This year it was an open Austrian Championships as well. We really like this place so we came a bit in advance so we could enjoy this area. We stayed in camsite right next to the hole so we didnt…

This year Europeans took a place in Plattling, Germany. Plattling is well known among paddlers for its consist and wide hole. In 2011 Plattling hosted World Championship.  We use to go there more often as it is not that far from Slovakia. Competition started at 26 of May. Paddlers were already coming few weeks before. Water levels were low or medium for whole year and few days before it started float came. For while it looked like they have to cancel event but than water dropped and it could started. Thursday morning started with K1 men followed by other categories. Me…

Peter and I are preparing for upcoming European Championships in Freestyle kayaking which are going to be in the end of May. Most of the time we spend by paddling in holes, training our freestyle routine, improving our tricks and learning new moves or combinations. Plattling is a special hole so we spend a lot of time there. If we are not there we train in Slovakia- Bratislava or Austria- Graz. As the kayaking season has started we parked out our camper from garage and spend most of days in there. It is our second home and it makes traveling way…

ayaking seasson 2016 has started early this year.  Winter wasn't very solid in our part of Europe and now it is looking like spring is coming.  Our first time on the water this year was in early February (last time in 2015 was in December).

It is a place where upcoming European Championships will be held.  Good water level nice weather and aquapark after kayaking made it a perfect trip not…

Tejpovanie

Posted by Peter Csonka / Mar 1 '16 / 5 Comments

Mali ste už problémy, s bolesťami svalov a šliach kvôli pretrénovanosti alebo prepracovanosti? Ja sa venujem profesionálne kajak freestyle na divokej vode a celkom často mávam problémami s ramenami a zápästím. Po mojej operácii ramena som mal len málo času sa pripraviť na sezónu. Dalo mi to celkom zabrať a hlavne teda svalom pletenca postihnutej končatiny. Ako fixácie som používal tejpy. Vyskúšal som celkom veľa značiek a človek by povedal, že žiaden rozdiel medzi nimi nebude, ale opak je pravdou. Veľa z nemenovaných tejpov stráca pružnosť už po jednom dni a samozrejme som mal aj veľký problém s lepidlom, ktoré moc…
