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…

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…

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…

Tažký comeback.

Posted by Peter Csonka / Mar 19 '15 / 5 Comments

Po nejakom tom mesiaci sa opäť ozývam. Konečne začínam byť spokojný so svojou formou. Koncom novembra som podstúpil operáciu ramenného kĺbu a aby som stihol túto sezónu mal som teda čo robiť. Asi po dvoch týždňoch po operácii som už trénoval samozrejme s fixáciu zranenej ruky. V takej situácii človek vyskúša všetko, aby sa mu zranenia čo najskôr vyliečili. Ja som v tom období používal hlavne kĺbovú výživu Gelo-3 complex a  tomu som jedol MSM + Fit Cé vitamín. Táto kĺbová výživa a jej kombinácia by mala najviac vplývať na regeneráciu kĺbov. Vďaka pohybu a doplnkom som mohol zložiť ortézu skôr ako…

Gelo 3 výživa kĺbov

Posted by Peter Csonka / Jan 4 '15 / 5 Comments

Ahoj moje meno je Peter Csonka a som profesionálny kajakár. Kajakovaniu na divokej vode sa venujem už dlhé roky. Asi ako väčšinu ostatných vrcholových športovcov tak ani mňa neminuli zranenia. Túto sezónu som si už myslel, že sa nič neprihodí, však na koniec sezóny to nie je tak náročné a predsa… Vždy keď to najmenej čakáš tak sa to stane. Na jedných z posledných pretekov tejto sezóny som si pri zle načasovanom zábere vykĺbil rameno. Vykĺbené rameno na divokej vode znamená väčšinou plávanie a teda nechcené opustenie kajaku. Perej, kde som musel vyplávať naozaj patrí medzi ťažšie a plávanie nebolo príjemné.…
