How did it start?: When I was a child, I used to do windsurfing, kitesurfing, wakeboarding and snowboarding, so boards were always in my life. Once I went on vacation to the Canary Islands and tried surfing for the first time, and I totally fell in love with the sport. When I came back home, where I don’t have access to the ocean, I started looking for some alternatives to surfing, and I discovered wake surfing! Poland has thousands of lakes, and one of them is close to my home. That was a time in Poland when one of the first Wakesurf school opened close to my home, so I started wake surfing as much as I can.
What advice would you give anyone starting out?: I would tell them to watch better Wakesurfers every time they have the opportunity. The best possibility is to watch from the boat but if you don’t have many pro riders at your hometown, watch videos with tricks on youtube or Instagram. There are thousands of them. I also invite you to watch my account @life_on_the_wave, where I post a lot of wakesurf content. It’s also important to have your own coach who teaches you new skills and pushes you to the next level.

Interesting fact most people do not know about you: I’m a cookie monster ;) I love cookies & cakes but I keep my sport diet and eat cheat-meal only once a week.
What do you like about your Axis A22: For me, Axis pushes me to the next level. It gives a perfect wave in every parameter: length, high and face quality are superb. I can easily change the wave to practice every trick. It’s also extremely important for me while I coach my students, cause I can adopt the wave for every level of wakesurfer.
