Phil in Lanzarote '07

Spring into Action

Phil Soltysiak and Jakub Kosmowski show what they’ve been up to all Winter as the freestyle season gets set to open at the Podersdorf PWA / EFPT Surf World Cup…

Canadian pro Phil Soltysiak (Starboard) is one of the few of the new wave of freestyle talent that’s managed to crack the ‘first round blues’ on his debut season back in 2007.

The 20-yr old took a year out from school to hit the tour and so far it’s paid off with an impressive =17th ranking in his rookie year.

Sharing 17th was Polish pro Jakub Kosmowski (Tabou / Gaastra), who’s a freestyle specialist on a mission.

Both riders have just released short movies of their winter training so you can see how hard the upcoming Austrian event that opens the freestyle season is set to be.

Jakub says a load of footage was stolen in South Africa, but that there should still be enough material in there to make you see just how good the names outside the top-16 are, and that maybe this is the year for these two guys to make a move on the big time?

Check Phil’s video out here and Jakub’s at his website. Enjoy.
