My friend Lucas Swieykowski from Argentina was on the phone. Did I want to join him and Nike ACG team mate Robin Kaleta for a film trip in the Czech Republic and Sovakia? Hell yes! I was going to Jasna anyhow for the FWTQ so why not make the long trip worth it by checking out these countries I had never been too? The following day I picked Lucas up from the train station and 10 hours later we arrived at Robin’s home in Stritez.
Our trip consisted of skiing and filming the best the Czech Republic and Slovakia had to offer, including Reka, Vratna-Chleb and Jasna. Fog, rain and wind certainly posed some challenges for us but it didn’t stop us from experiencing the warm hospitality of the people here. I was amazed how developed the freeski-scene is and how committed the local skiers are. It just goes to show that good skiers can come from smaller resorts without all the bells and whistles. Thanks so much to Czech’s most successful freeski pro Robin Kaleta and our cameraman Tomas Galasek for showing us such a good time. Here are some impressions of our trip:
