Graz freestyle kayak championships 2007

At Thursday we came to Graz to practicing little bit before the competition. The water levels were for the lower wave at the Radecky Bridge. I thing every move was possible to do, but it was difficult. Next day the water drop and the hole begin to be nasty  I liked it.

Nina with her low weight was flying high

Vlado practising

Than we went to the city because Graz is one of the most beautiful city's in Europe. ,,Very nice :)''

On Saturday was the event. Many nations were there like Austria, Slovakia, Germany, Slovenia and Czech rep.
Everything was perfect organized and in one day was Quali, semis and finals. The event was very hard because everyone was paddling well. In the end on lady’s category with awesome rides Nina end on the second place because she miss the loop.

In the man category the first three places was paddlers from team Wavesport which is perfect and definitely team Wavesport domains on the European scene. I think man finals were awesome to watch because there was paddling almost the best paddlers in Europe. Strohmeier bros. take the second and third place and I take the firs. It was so difficult to win because they paddling so well and the differences was so little and hard to judge. It was great to watch.

to catch an air was easy

Vlado did good as well too , he end on the nice 12th place.
