I would like to introduce you a new czech documentary called WITHOUT THE SEA made by Tom Galásek and ALTERNATIVE.NOW in cooperation with me and other Czech windsurfers (Petr Kabát and Martin Ovsik).
Despite that Czech Republic doesn’t have sea and perfect conditions for this sport, there are still people for whom windsurfing became lifestyle and passion and they have been able to succeed worldwide. We decided to show on our stories that if one is persistent and has a life goal then he can achieve a lot. Movie WITHOUT THE SEA will not offer just a great show with magnificent and unique shots from the world of windsurfing but it will also introduce a group of people who can motivate younger generations as well. Dynamic fresh cutts with shots of beautiful places, adrenalin, hard work, fulfilled dreams but also dissapointment – all in one documentary.
This movie is intended mostly for young people who don’t know what to do in their lives in such a hectic and chaotic time we live in now. They don’t last to devote with one activity for longer time and they are often ending up in the trap of high demands of the society. Because of this we will try to show through the lenses toughness of these guys for whom became windsurfing a lifetime passion. Our goal is to motivate young generations to stop wasting their time and find a hobby or activity in their lives which will make sense.
The WTS movie has been filmed in Czech Republic, Denmark, Italy, Nederland, South Africa, Canary islands, Morocco, Germany, Austria and Spain.
The premiere of the movie was held in November 2013 in Prague and it was a huge success. We sold all released DVD’s in very short time afterwards. The spectators could see our work not only on DVD but also in few Czech TV Channels like Nova Sport TV, Fanta TV and Czech MTV. Right now you can watch it in the buses of the biggest Czech travel company called Student agency.
