Why do you love to skate? I am filling freedom when I skate 

What keeps you pushing forward in skating? A lot of opportunities which cooperation with Powerslide offers.

What was your greatest success? I think it is 3 place in the world championship in 2014 (the most difficult competition) and 3rd place in the world ranking in 2013.

What is your favorite place to skate? Warsaw – the flat city with a lot of spots for slides and jumps 

What is your favorite trick? Heel heel eagle slide – I feel a lot of pleasure when the slide is smooth and stable.

What advice would you like to give? Skate just for fun and do what you like.

Any hobbies outside of skating? Skating absorbs all my free time

What is your favorite moment in skating? My favorite moment is when I learn new tricks.

Tell us about your personal philosophy, phrase, ethic, and/or value as a skater! Yes, you can write a book…? My philosophy had changed after winning on European Championship. Before I was training very hard and my goal was winning all competitions. When I reached the top level I found out that training and competitions were not interested anymore. I decided that If I want to have fun skating I should leave the professional sport and do what I like. Thanks to Powerslide, I can try different setups and disciplines. I think being a part of the Powerslide team is the best that could happen with me after a pro skater career. I have fun and interesting in retiring with Powerslide.
