"I love to see my students progressing! What makes me very happy is when I see the excitement of my students face after learning a new trick! I am looking forward to see YOU on the water soon!"

Paula is one of the best kiteboarders in the Czech Republic and one of the best female kiteboarders in the world.

She was born on 26 December 1992 to a very active family with a passion for sports and has been an athlete since she was a toddler. At five years old, she started gymnastics. A few years later, her athletic repertoire would include track-and-field, orienteering, swimming, snowboarding, and climbing—all increased her overall agility, enhanced her physical strength, and taught her an acute awareness of her orientation in any space. Paula’s parents then introduced her to kiteboarding when she was 14 years old.

Since that time, every weekend, holiday, or any free moment, she traveled with her family to find wind and sun (the Czech Republic isn’t known for either!).

More often than not, her family spent every summer in Lefkada or Rhodes, Greece. There she trained intensely, and it was in these waters that she attempted her first freestyle tricks and acquired a level of skill worthy of professional competition.

Everything changed when Paula graduated from high school in 2012. She has now dedicated herself to full-time kitesurfing career. Three years after her first competitions, she has some serious professional achievements. In 2012 she became the junior freestyle champion, and in 2013 she completed her first year of entire Professional Kiteboard Riders Association [PKRA] World Tour (with competitions across Europe, South America, and Asia) and placed 4th freestyle overall and 2nd in slalom overall. In 2015 Paula faced a serious injury which set her back a little. Paula got back on the board in almost no time with more motivation, dedication and more athletic attitude. In 2015 and 2016 she can be proud of few podium places in the world tour. 

2017 is coming strong, Paula is dedicated and she is ready to give it all!
