Brief Presentation: I belong to the top 4 Czech freeskiers and also I am a member of Czech National Freeski Team. People know me as the most stylish skier in Czech Republic. I´m also rolleblading for about 12 years now, and my career and skills has a great influence on my skiing. You can imagine it as a balanced mixture of creativity, unique style, tricks, big pop and fun. During the winter, I travel and ski as much as I can. So i can push my skills further and make my thoughts about edits and tricks become a reality. I am cooperating with the only Czech professional freeski video production called Illegall production. Beside filming, training and having fun, I´m doin a competitions. At 13/14 season I will spend a month in USA – training and attending 2 worldcups, I will allso be at the last WC in Swiss, tryin to make it to the Olympics. The other competitions I am planning to be part of are: O´Neill Soldiers, AFO, PFO, Gloryfy Bastards, Kumi Yama etc. Between filming, competing and traveling I´m running a freeskicamp at my home resort and trying to spread the freeski spirit all around.

Spreading the spirit: SATISFACTION SKI CAMP -, www. SatisFACTION Ski Camp is the first top class freeski camp composed of the best, what you can find in the Czech Republic. It takes place in Gravitypark Deštné – Eagle mountains. Why there? Because it´s my homeresort and second home. It´s the only place in the Czech Republic, where the riders will receive such a care like – everyday shaped snowpark by the crew, who takes care about O´Neill Soldiers fortress, creative obstacles, accomodation under the lift etc. About riders takes care 3 top coaches – Me, Ondra Beneš (experienced by many years of coaching) and Tomas Guzuir (legend - the first czech skier who reached top 10 Europian results). Media coverage? No better people could show up here. Videoreport is taken care of by Lucas Herman – cameraman of RedBull company, the responsible for all video outcome of the Czech biggest RedBull events. And he´s also founder of Illegall productions and author of

Separation films – His Ultim8 Separation was chosen to have a world premiere at International Freeski Film Festival in France (IF3). The photographer is Mr. Lukyn Wagneter. He´s the main photographer of the O´Neill Soldiers event and one of the most talented kids out here. Most of my portfolio pics had been taken by him. Simply, the goal of the camp is to push the campers limits somewhere further and also deepen their passion for freestyle and freeski as an overall lifestyle and ,,religion,,. And I´m very pleased that I can do this kind of thing for others and spread this new dynamic sport and the spirit that accompanies it. Satisfaction Ski Camp is just a concentration of people who know what they´re doing a how they want to do it, great collective of all participants – coaches, campers, shapers, just everyone involved, and last but not least – THE GOOD VIBE! Summer version of the camp called SPLASH SESSION is in progress and is going to happen this summer.

Off – season activites I love to rollerblade. I´ve rollerbladed since I remember,and I am competing in all Czech events. And on every comp, I´ve made it to the podium. I´ve also become multiple champion of Czech Republic in various disciplines. Besides competing, I rollerblade in team of the best Czech BMXers, who are doing exhibitions. For example a series of exhibitions supported by health insurance company called: NERISKUJ TO (www. It was about educating children, how to behave safety, when they are in the skate/snowpark or to wear protection gear while they are doing one of the extreme sports. Next we were at huge festivals like HIP HOP KEMP,ROCK FOR PEOPLE,TUNING PARTY,TRUCKFEST, big mall openings, etc..

12/13 Schedule&Goals Right now, I´m concentrating on the last 3 worldcups as I want to take the opportunity and make it to Sochi. After the last worldcup in Gstaad, I want to concentrate more on filming at parks and urbans for my edits. I also want to participate in Level 1´s Superuknown, where I really want to make to the finals. Next I want to participate in as many europian competitions as I´ll be able to – AFO, PFO, Gloryfy Bastards, O´Neill Soldiers…. Tentative schedule for the first ½ of winter: September: Kromwars waterjump contest,, IF3 Hintertux Session October: 14 days on glacier – preseason training November: 14 days on glacier – preseason training December start of January: Usa – Keystone, Breckenridge, WorldCup – CopperMountain, California – Northstar – Worldcup Early Januarry Swiss – Last world cup Middle, late January Faction urban webisode shooting

Due to more opportunities of traveling, meeting new people, exploring new enviroments and mainly, spending more and more time on my skis..I want to target on spreading my name through the world freeski scene and audience, while doin competitions, filming edits, pushing my skiing skills further and organising the freeskicamps. On the other side…I still want to be reported a lot in my native country to support local freeski scene and the sport itself. Thanks to my partners, friends and my power of will, my dreams are slowly becoming a reality. I hope you like my style, visions, the way i see skiing. If you do…..Join my adventures!
