REASON FOR TAKING UP THE SPORT
It's a long story, but it started from an accident at jet ski. I wasn't able to walk or run because my right leg was in bad shape but I could paddle. That's how it started at age of 10. When I was able to move normally again I started to paddle more and more white water. At age of 16 I took a part in my first freestyle event. Meanwhile I was also training swimming and some other sports like martial arts, but always freestyle kayaking was that thing which gives me true pleasure. In 2011 I met Zofia Tula and from that time we are travelling together to train freestyle, white water kayaking and to compete in international events. 
Kayaking is my passion and way for life. To be able to paddle more together with Zofia we created our kayak school and we both are teaching freestyle and white water kayaking and travelling around the World.
