Till the end

In one of my latest updates I mentioned that the kayak session is over. WRONG! Fortunately the owners of the white water course in Cunovo decided to keep the water running due to great weather conditions so we were still able to use the course till it started to freeze.
Our usual course has a certain hole that we love to hit but that section was closed. Fortunately the second course also had a play hole and sometimes when they released more water we could also ride a nice small wave.
We are very lucky that we can manage trainings till the end of November. In December we will continue in Uganda. Uganda is our favourite training place. The river lies 1000m above sea level which is perfect for endurance training. We usually spent there every day including two training sessions. This time we plan to pay as many visits as possible to the hole called “super hole”.
So this is probably the very last update from the cold winter in Europe.
Enjoy the small clip from the training.

Movie night weekends

Two weeks ago we had the premiere of our new movie from Zambia. We decided to arrange a huge party including Nina's birthday party. We held it in the boat house called “Dunajcik“ which has a long canoe history in Slovakia. After a few months of editing the movie it was finally ready...We showed the whole section of the Victoria Falls and the lake Kariba taken in January. We were lucky and managed the whole section as we wanted, and over the top we captured it all.Thanks to Nico Chassing who helped us to make that happen.We had a private premiere with about 60 people ( just our friends ) and after the movie Nina’s big birthday party began. Thanks to everybody for the support with this super nice party.Next plan is to play this movie at all the outdoor movie festivals in Slovakia including the most famous one called “Hory a mesto“ where the movies are played in Aupark Cinema infront of thousands of people. Awesome weekend!!!

Last weekend was another film festival called “HoryZonty“. It is the second famous film festival with about 3000 visitors each year showing outdoor movies in Slovakia. We are proud that also one of our movies (Damming the heaven) was shown there and also won 3rd place. Thanks very much to the organizer of this event.
More info.
You can watch the whole movie

A big thank you to all the sponsors that helped us to make this happen.

See you!
