When I was a child, kitesurfing was like the first mobile phones. It was
a unique and fascinating for the most of people.
When I grew up and I could afford the purchase of equipment, I
started to practice this sport. Along the way I met many wonderful
people, because surfing is not just a sport, but also people. A small
group of these people decided to create a profession called Baltic Kite
Wave Jam - competition for weather forecast. Despite the fairly young
age, it is safe to say that this is a cult event for which all kite wave
surfers eagerly wait each year.
I wanted to show what the kitesurfing is.

Mateusz Górny - photographer by passion.

The first camera as a child I received from my grandfather on "Christmas" which was like a bean seed. Waiting a few years to germinate, when I saved from spending money on the first digital compact Pentax.

A year later, I took the first place in the category of "Joy" in the first edition of the polish Grand Photo Competition by National Geographic.

Since then, events have passed more than 10 years. I try to appreciate everything that catches my attention in a way that will interest and interest.
