My winter workout in Uganda.

Posted by Peter Csonka / Feb 2 '16 / 5 Comments

The winter in Slovakia is really long because there is no more kayaking and mostly if the winter is weak than even boring because there is just mud around and no snow. As always in the middle of the winter you get the feeling that you need to leave somewhere for kayaking. This year I was trying to get some company and leave for some kayaking to Equator. Unfortunately none of my friends were keen to go due kids or work. I didn't want to stick whole winter at home so I decided from day to day to leave for some…

Jacskon kayak Zen

Posted by Peter Csonka / Jan 4 '16 / 5 Comments

Toto leto sme sa spolu s Petom rozhodli rozšíriť našu zbierku kajakov o dva úplne novučké Zeny. Pre mňa maly S-kový zen a pre Peťa samozrejme veľký L-kovy.  Dlho sme rozmýšlali nad značkou a modelom lodí. Vyskúšali sme viacero kajakov nakoniec však pre nás na plnej čiare vyhral práve Zen. Z našich freestylových kajakov sme zvyknutí na pohodlné sedenie, ktoré sme u väčšiny creekoviek postrádali. V Zene sa mi sedí naozaj pohodlne a čo je dôležité, viem si pár pohybmi nastaviť opierku, prispôsobiť bočné opierky, či posunúť predný šprajc. Ja ako žena toto veľmi ocenujem. Nieje to len otázka pohodlnosti, ale…

Kompava Premium

Posted by Peter Csonka / Nov 26 '15 / 5 Comments

Ahojte, volám sa Nina Csonková a som profesionálna freestyle kajakárka. Momentálne trénujem dvakrát denne. Jeden krát na vode, plus doplnkový tréning ako napr. beh, silový tréning v posilňovni, alebo rôzne koordinačné cvičenia. Protein Premium Energy si dávam ráno pred tréningom. Je to pre mňa najlepšia forma raňajok, nezaťažujú žalúdok a po dlhú dobu necítim pocit hladu. Dodáva mi potrebný pomer živín, ktoré moje telo pri náročnom tréningu potrebuje. Uvoľňovanie sacharidov je postupné a preto, nevzniká v tele vychýlenie krivky cukru v krvi, ale uvoľňuje sa postupne a dlhodobo. Vďaka tomuto by nemalo prísť k hypoglykémií a teda k tzv. “triaške” pri…

Winter paddling.

Posted by Peter Csonka / Nov 24 '15 / 5 Comments

We were really lucky because weather was nice this fall. It was sunny and warm just perfect for paddling. But as it is getting closer to winter we can fell that weather is changing and temperature is getting low. Few weeks ago we took out our dry suits and put the neoprene hat on. Water in rivers is cold but good warm underwear protects us from freezing. We were paddling at our white water course for last few weeks but it is closed from last Friday. Last weekend we went for opening ceremony to Graz. Local paddlers build a new hole…

Adidas Sickline 2015 Women Division

Posted by Peter Csonka / Oct 30 '15 / 5 Comments

Adidas Sickline Extreme Kayak World Championships 2015 was a bit special for women this time. It is already well know among paddling community and the women category is getting bigger and bigger from year to year. This time 24 women took a part and raced at Oetztal Valley.

I was pretty surprised to see so many girls to train on competition course. I can say many of them was looking much better on…

Euro Cup #3 & #4

Posted by Peter Csonka / Oct 5 '15 / 5 Comments

One day after we got home from Canada we were sitting in our car again and heading to Prague where the third Euro Cup in freestyle took a place. After one month paddling the wave it was nice change to paddle in the hole. We didnt had much training as we came just one day before event started. On Saturday all the prelims were on the schedule. I was feeling quite week, I guess it was from the jet lag, but I did pretty solid rides and scored really high score which secured me a first place. Peter paddled good but…

Kayak freestyle world championships #1

Posted by Peter Csonka / Aug 25 '15 / 5 Comments

This time the Worls are moving from USA to Canada. Instead of stabile hole to fast strong wave. Everybody are looking forward to paddle great Garborator wave next to Otawa. We are coming in 4 weeks advance to prepare us for this event. Many paddlers are already here and training on the wave. The wave is good but difficult. It is a big challenge but every day it is going better and better. Line up is getting busy. It is nice to meet all the friends from over the sea who we didnt see for longer or very long time. Our…

Swisz training

Posted by Peter Csonka / Aug 15 '15 / 5 Comments

Warming up before the Worlds. This year Kayak freestyle World Championships are taking place in Otawa on famost Garborator wave. It is fast wave with shoulders. We have surfed it in 2006 so it´s been 9 years. This wave is awesome to paddle but a bit tricky as well. In Europe we dont have many waves to paddle specialy not the type like this one. As the event is slowly coming up we had to figured out where to train until we leave to Canada. The best option was wave in Bremgarten. It is not that far and the wave is…

Look back for the season preparations.

Posted by Peter Csonka / Jul 13 '15 / 5 Comments

After some time in Plattling me and my friend Lukas Cervinka we decided to go for the training to Uganda. Uganda has always the best features for playboating in the waves. My plan was of course the train in the waves and get ready for World championships, but I also had an idea to make a movie about the local Ugandan kayakers which made the team to represent their country at the World championships in Canada. It is actually the first time that the whole Ugandan team is going to take a part at the World championships in freestyle kayaking. I…

AUSTRIAN CUP - DOLOMITEN FREESTYLE

Posted by Peter Csonka / Jul 3 '15 / 5 Comments

This week we were on the road again, heading to my favorite part of Austria to the Dolomites. The hole in Lienz has changed a bit, so the organizers decided to move the event 40 km away from Lienz to the Flattach on the River Moll. I know this place from the last year and it is as good as Lienz. The scenery is absolutely beautiful and the water is so clean that you can drink it. The Moll River is flowing through a valley that is surrounded by great glaciers and mountains. The water sports area in Flattach is well…

Few weeks ago we were invited to do the exhibition in Area 47. Its a nice place at the Oetz valley. Every year they organize a big opening for clients, sponsors and its opened also for normal people too. This year there was a big party with lots of sport activities like blobbing, cliff jumps, ski jumps of course us on the ramp and many more. Me and Nina we were changing on the ramp during the show. When I was jumping Nina was with the little star Peter jr. and than we changed. Pretty cool how the others admire us…

Freestyle kayak Euro Cup in Plattling #1

Posted by Peter Csonka / Jun 11 '15 / 5 Comments

Plattling is well know between freestyle paddlers as a solid playhole. It hosted a few world class events as a World Cups or World Championships in past few years. This time the first Euro Cup took the place there. It was a preliminary event before the European Championships next year. The water levels was very good. A week before it started the small flood came and secured the higher water for the event. We stayed there a weekend before and trained in the hole. We couldn't stay whole week and had to go back home. We came back Thursday night and…

KAYAKING WITHOUT SPARRING PARTNER

Posted by Peter Csonka / May 21 '15 / 5 Comments

I’ve always known that a sparring partner is a very important specialty in kayaking. Creeking or river running is almost impossible and dangerous without him and freestyling is quite boring if you are on your own. But it is not easy to find a soul mate you can share your enthusiasm with, especially in a discipline like freestyle. I am very lucky to have found my soul mate – my husband who is my kayaking partner and trainer in one person. I train with him all the time. I’ve trained without him just few times in our 12-year relationship. However this…

HOW TO GO OVER THE INJURIES

Posted by Peter Csonka / Apr 1 '15 / 5 Comments

Hi, so its March.  Hehe I know that you guys might figured out this information also without me, but for me March was the month with big "M". I tell you why. Have you ever been injured? Maybe yes maybe no, but the point is: if you are injured and you can't do something that you love because of the injury, that is the worst feeling.  I love kayaking, I think I won't ever stop, even when I'm old, broke or what ever happens to me in the future. As you probably figured out before, I had some difficult injures in the past, like…
