Sunny weather in Poland, can look cloudy to you 😁☀️Whatever you think, it's always sunny when you are having a great time. Cutting laps @wakefamilybrwinow is so much fun, even when the temperature is below 15'C.
/🇵🇱/ Słoneczna pogoda w Polsce, może innym wydawać się pochmurną. Jak dla mnie, słońce zawsze świeci kiedy spędzam fajnie czas. Pływanie na wakeparku w @wakefamilybrwinow jest zawsze fajne, nawet jeśli temperatury spadają poniżej 15'C

Polish long weekend is starting, and temperatures are maximising in this time of the year here. What more can I say, be happy about this time of the year, spend more time outside and enjoy almost the entire week off work!💃☀️🤘

Majówka już za rogiem, a temperatury już osiągają maksimum na tą porę roku! Co więcej mogę powiedzieć, cieszmy się tą porą roku, spędzaniem czasu na świeżym powietrzu i tym że mamy prawie całyyy tydzień wolny od pracy 😁🤘☀️

For many of you kiteboarding tricks are hard to comprehend. For me the tricks I do are most important part of my job. Nevertheless, professional kiteboarders always try to mix very difficult tricks with tricks that everyone, even outside of kiteboarding industry will appreciate. Here, its a shot of a backroll stalefish grab that I thought you might like :) 🇵🇱 Dla wielu z was, manewry które robię są niezrozumiałe. Dla mnie, skoki i trudne tricki są najważniejszą częścią mojej pracy. Niemniej jednak, profesjonalni kiteboarderzy starają się urozmaicać skoki trudne w wykonaniu, z prostymi, ładnymi dla oka amatorów. Na tym zdjęciu wykonuję trick o nazwie back roll stalefish grab, który wydaje mi się bardzo elegancki ;) #kiteworld #slingshotkite

Patiently waiting for the kiteboarding season in Poland to begin! 😁🤘🔥 Temperatures are definitely getting higher every day and I find it really exciting to wait for something I love to do. Poland is strongly dependant on the seasons, and so everybody can do their favourite hobbies in different times of the year. Summer around the corner, what are your favorite summer activities? /🇵🇱/W spokoju czekam na sezon kiteboardingu w Polsce! Temperatury już coraz wyższe. Bardzo mi się podoba takie oczekiwanie na coś co kocham robić, motywuje mnie to do treningu przygotowawczego. W Polsce bardzo duży wpływ mają pory roku na naszą pasję. Lato jest zdecydowanie moją preferowaną porą roku, ale jest to mocno związane ze sportem który uprawiam. Jakie są wasze ulubione aktywności latem? 📸 @sllodyczka

I have been having a fabulous time at home in Warsaw. It’s rad to actually spending a quality time with my friends, shredding at the @wakefamilybrwinow , and watch the sunsets just outside of the city.

Recently so many of us lives in digital world, judging each other based on what you see online. I honestly can’t believe how many of you are trapped in the false reality that all the social media create. Come shred at the cable park with me in the evenings, it’s the best thing you can do for yourself.

/🇵🇱/Aktualnie jestem w domu w Warszawie i z radością spędzam czas z przyjaciółmi, pływając na wakeparku @wakefamilybrwinow, oraz oglądając zachody słońca zaraz po treningu.
Ostatnio wielu z nas żyje w cyfrowym świecie, oceniając siebie nawzajem na podstawie tego, co widzą w internecie. Szczerze mówiąc nie mogę uwierzyć, ilu moich znajomych jest uwięzionych w fałszywej rzeczywistości, którą tworzą media społecznościowe. Po pracy, zostawcie telefony w domu i chodźcie ze mną popływać na wakeparku. Sport na świeżym powietrzu, to najlepsza rzecz jaką możesz dla siebie zrobić!

Bio
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.

In our continuing how to ride feature we look at the intricacies of riding a small flat water spot like Safety Bay. If everyone plays nice hundreds of kiters can have a great time in a small spot. However, it only takes one person to turn the spot on its head and make it dangerous for everyone. Don’t be that guy or gal, read Colleen’s piece and make yourself a better more considerate rider wherever you kite!
