Posted by Peter Csonka / Oct 17 '14 / 5 Comments

As every year there was the highlight competition Adidas Sickline taking place in Oetz Austria. This year the most important competition in freestyle form me, finished at end of the august. Since this I doesn't need to train for freestyle anymore and could just switch for the slalom kayak. I tried to get use to the long boats again and was also trying to get better shape for the famous Sickline. A week before the competition starts we went to Oetz to enjoy awesome weather and of course the river itself. There are few great sections to kayak on with nice…

Slovak championship

Posted by Peter Csonka / Oct 13 '14 / 5 Comments

These Championships were a bit different as the last ones. The first reason was that the peak of the season was the European Championships here in Slovakia just two weeks before our national champs. And the second reason was that this time it was a part of big festival – Riot river fest. It was a freestyle event where you could find disciplines as the river surfing, BMX, cross fit, freestyle kayak, kayak cross… We were tired from serious training so we wanted to make it more as a fun event. Peter was the main organizer of the kayak part of the event…

Hypofit + BCAA - energicka bomba

Posted by Peter Csonka / Sep 18 '14 / 5 Comments

 Posledné svetové poháre boli pre mňa celkom únavné. Po pretekoch v Usa som hneď pokračoval na ďalsie dva preteky svetového pohára v Španielsku. To vlastne znamená, že skoro celý mesiac v kuse je pretekar na tréningu a pripravuje sa na následovnu súťaž. Je to velmi fyzicky aj psychycky náročné. Keďže na každý z pretekov som musel letieť nemal som možnost toho si veľa so sebou pobaliť. Musel som si dobre zvážiť akú výstroj si so sebou vziať, aby som mal so sebou všetko čo potrebujem, ale aby som sa zmestil do váhového limitu. Okrem svojej vodáckej výstroje a oblečenia som si…

Kayak Freestyle European Championships 2014.

Posted by Peter Csonka / Sep 18 '14 / 5 Comments

This Europeans was a big challenge for us. It was hold in our "home spot" in Cunovo, Slovakia. We know this place pretty well and was looking forward to host "the big freestyle event" here. The white water course in Cunovo is well know between the slalom paddlers but not many freestylers know that we have a solid playspot here as well. Week before the event it become a very busy. Everybody wanted to paddle and get use to it. It is quite tricky hole, different from other holes, but everything is possible to do there. You could see it as…

Kopava Micellar Casein

Posted by Peter Csonka / Aug 7 '14 / 5 Comments

Ahoj, Moje meno je Peter Csonka. Som profesionálny kajakár a venujem sa disciplíne kajak freestyle. Momentálne som v prípravnom období na vrcholový pretek a to Majstrovstvá Európy, ktoré sa budú konať u nás v Čunove. Toto obdobie pokladám asi za najťažšie z celej sezóny pretože ide do tuhého. Celé dni trávim na športovisku a pretože to je vodný šport to znamená, že vo vode. Kedže na posledných majstrovstvách Európy mi medaila ušla kvôli úrazu na brušnom svale z dôvodu pretrénovania, tento rok som sa rozhodol vyskúšať zlepšiť svoje stravovanie a samozrejme doplnkovú výživu. Jedným z produktov, ktorý som posledný mesiac skúšal…

NINA BACK ON THE WATER

Posted by Peter Csonka / Aug 5 '14 / 5 Comments

Hey, I am back in my kayak!   After short break which was caused by my pregnancy, I started to paddle again. It took my 6 weeks from labour to be able to sit in my kayak. I had a C-section so I had to wait until the wound healed properly, but now I feel pretty good.   My first steps on the water after 3 months were a bit carefull. I lost my belly muscles and it wasn't easy to get back into my freestyle boat. I did a few trainings in a slalom boat for the start. As I…

Wildaplen freestyle- Helliwelli’s pradise

Posted by Peter Csonka / Jul 25 '14 / 5 Comments

There was only 3 days since I came home after from the World cups and left for another competition in Austria. This time we went together with Peter jr. and Nina. Its funny how long it takes to pack everything you need for the baby :). After longer time spent with preparing and packing we was able to leave. The way there is only 250km and it went OK. Peter was really good and sleeping almost all the way there. We was happy to leave to Wildalpen where the next event took part because in Bratislava was really a tropical summer…

The final World cup in Sort

Posted by Peter Csonka / Jul 22 '14 / 5 Comments

The final World cup in freestyle kayaking. After the Salt, the second World cup we moved to Sort where the final competition took place. We had only few days for training and the hole was super difficult and big. Lets say in one edge it was a huge nasty hole where all the were difficult and on the other side was a small hole really shallow and super flashy. Not good for my carbon boat. It means everybody can have a good day or bad day and mess up the rides, or to be a star. I had pretty good training…

From Payette games to the World cup

Posted by Peter Csonka / Jul 10 '14 / 5 Comments

The Payette games in Idaho were really great trip. I went there only for short time, but I really enjoyed my staying. The location, wave and town looks so great. The hole over there is incredible, on one side is a big hole and on the other side is a wave so you can pretty much do all the moves on the list, you just have to build your ride properly. The competition didn't went well for me even I felt really good in the training. The first run was all right but I was feeling really slow and tired and…
