Janek Korycki

Janek Korycki is one of the few river surfing pioneers from Poland who recently surfed a new spot at the Bobr river. He’s a great surfer and river surfer, but that’s not all. He’s also a competitive kite surfer, wake boarder, skateboarder and snowboarder.

Sponsored and supported by Nixon, DC, GoPro, burn, Quicksilver, Slingshot, vault and Dakine, Jan is always on the road, hitting surf, kite and wake sessions whenever and wherever he can. This gives him the possibility to combine what he loves most: sports and traveling. Besides being busy with his sponsor affiliations, the 1988 born water enthusiast is also co-editor of the Polish surfmag.

It’s safe to say that Jan’s discovery of the first Polish river waves has set river surfing in Poland in motion. We are already curious where Jan and his friend will be off to next time on their mission to discover the yet unexplored river waves of Poland.

Jan’s list of records

  • Second in Kitesurfing Slider World Championships Pkra 2006 Venezuela
  • Polish Champion ’06 In kitesurfing
  • Polish champion ’08 in surfing
  • Vice Polish Champ in Kitesurfing ’08
