engine of the pumps
They can change the type of the wave or hole, because everything is robotic and possible to set it up right with hydraulic. Awesome! At Friday was the training, not many people were there because of their work and we had the hole just for us. The hole isn’t running whole time, because you need gas to keep it running which is little bit expensive. Lot of people came at night and had training with car lightning. Next morning started the qualification of each category. In the man category after the quali I came first Jan Spindler second and Jan Bubnik third.
Jan Bubnik is focusing before hir ride
In the woman category Nina with awesome both rides was first .

The semis were really late at night without any sunlight. The weather was cold and nobody wanted to go kayaking but the competition needed to be done. The organizers put some cars near the playspot and switch on the lights. It was difficult to compete at this lightning but we had fun up there and enjoyed the kayaking. After the semis in woman category Nina was first again , Lenka Novotna came second and third was Lenka Borovickova.
In the man category was first Jan Spindler , I was second and Stepan Vohradsky was third. After the semis was an awesome party, with fire and lot of music. Next cold morning the finals started slowly. In woman Nina did well again and had all 3 rides really good and came first.
