Kite is my life ! @karolinawinkowska
3x Freestyle Kiteboarding World Champion | Triple S Winner | Kite Park League Champ | Slingshot Kite | Nissan Qashqai
Polish rider Karolina Winkowska has been going from strength to
strength since she first began kiteboarding in her summer holidays in
2004. With a family who are “addicted to watersports” and background
success in extreme sports (she was Polish junior champion in boarder
cross and big air snowboarding) it’s no surprise Karolina has made it
to the PKRA winner’s podium.

2005 saw Karolina debut on the PKRA scene finishing 5th in the Brazil
event and gaining her first sponsors “Roxy” and “Naish”. This was her
first taste of international competition but by 2008, she had earned
herself two consecutive 2nd places on the PKRA podium, won the 2008
Chile event, and gained another big sponsor “Ford”. She was on top of
her game, however Karolina’s luck was about to change and her 2009
season was severely threatened by a crash in Brazil which left her
with a broken leg, “Not only did I have a broken leg but I also had to
finish my high school education, so I needed to study a lot during
this time which meant I couldn’t go to the beach or kite. I had only 3
weeks kiting time during the winter.”

Thankfully Karolina managed a fast recovery and was back on the water
within the year showing us the powerful and fearless style we know her
so well for... and back on the PKRA winner’s podium by the end of the
season finishing in third place overall.

Her explanation for her success in the sport? “Kitesurfing is my
passion, the thing that I do basically for pleasure.” This is made
very clear as she is never seen on the beach without a smile on her
face. She currently manages to maintain a healthy balance between
Kiteboarding and her language studies whilst remaining one of the most
committed and fun loving female riders on tour.
