Get to know our Brand Ambassador Eli
Hello, I'm Eli from the Czech Republic. I grew up there, but I usually spend only a few months a year there because I travel so often. Therefore, I don't really have a base I could call home right now! My home is wherever the wind is blowing. Of course, though, I always return to the Czech Republic when I have time!
Kitesurfing is my passion. It takes me across the world, travelling and looking for new locations with strong winds! I used to compete in fitness before starting kitesurfing, and I still enjoy going to the gym. My gym sessions are now mostly concentrated on off-water training and personal enjoyment. I love to surfskate and snowboard in the winter, which keeps my skills sharp for the kiteboarding season! I am hoping to host my first kite camps next year too.
I am currently working on lots of different projects. Marketing and social media management are my main areas of work. My personal Instagram account is continually expanding. I also manage Instagram profiles for other companies. My projects are constantly changing, and I'm always willing to explore new and exciting options. I am still trying to figure out how to keep a healthy balance!
My Huku journey
I tried a Huku for the first time a few years ago in my friend's gym. He had purchased some Huku boards for his gym. When I came to visit, I tried out the Huku Nalu. He couldn't get me off it! I had never seen a balance board like this before. It was something new and exciting. I spent 2 hours practising on it!
I love Huku Boards as they always offer new challenges. I'm currently attempting a 360-degree turn, but I am still not there yet. There are so many options for training your core on Huku Boards with varying difficulties.I usually go kitesurfing every day when it is windy. Huku Boards are particularly useful on days when there is little wind. I can't get out on the water but I can jump on my Huku and sharpen my skills.
