I am a Sailor, kitesurfer, water and winter sports enthusiast. You will likely find me where the sun shines and the wind blows, or alternatively, where the snow has just fallen. Since a very young age my life have been associated with water, my first sailing voyage was at the tender age of eleven months. I do not personally remember much of this voyage, however I do know that being exposed to this kind of life style has influenced me greatly thoughout my life, as I am now a very competent sailor and continue to sail in my free time.
There after I developed a passion for windsurfing, snowboarding and then I discovered kitesurfing. More recently I have been spending most of my time developing my skills as a kite boarder and kite foiler. I love to travel around the world, provide kite training, snowboard training and organise sailing trips. You can follow me on the tab ‘today and tomorrow’ to see where I am currently staying and what my next plans are.

In 2007 my first role as a windsurf instructor was in Rewa near Gdynia. I am now a very competent windsurf rider and instructor. During my time in Rewa, I also developed a range of kitesurfing skills and in 2012 I qualified as a kitesurfing instructor.
However, sailing has continued to remain very close to my heart. I was involved in several cruises in the Baltic and North Sea, which strengthened my sailing passion. At this time, I developed skills for sailing in the open sea, so much so that in 2012 I obtained a patent for the Yacht Maritime Navigation. One year later I organised my own first independent sailing cruise on the sea.
One of my other passions is engaging in snow related activities during winter seasons. I am no ‘sleeping Beauty’ and am always active. When the nearby lake at my home in Poland freezes and the snow starts to fall, I immediately get organised for snow kiting. This passion extends to the top of the mountain slopes, where since 2010 I have been involved in running snowboard training sessions.
I am qualified kite instructor holding a L3 Internationa Kiteboarding Organization (IKO) certificate. So far I have been fortunate enough to have develope my kitesurfing skills in Poland, Canary Islands, Brazil and Greece. Each of these places requires a different learning style and enviroments. This has helped me to become an adaptable rider.
I have rights to the Yacht Maritime Navigation, which gives me the ability to sail all over the world on yachts up to 18m in hull length. So far, I have organised cruises in Baltic Sea, Croatia, Canary Islands and Greece.
I have experience of teaching both: children and adults, in schools and snowboard camps, in the Polish mountains, in the Alps and Dolomites. I have experience of teaching classes at all levels and particulary enjoy teaching beginners and those about to take their firs steps onto the snow park.
