Who is Paula Novotná…?

Paula is one of the best kiteboarders in the Czech Republic and one of the best up-and-coming 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 spring 2012. She has now dedicated herself to full-time training and kitesurfing. 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 the 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.

“I am very lucky to have a family that travels, kites and does sports like me. Without them I wouldn’t have made it where I am now. Being a professional athlete was one of my dreams… that came true!”!
