In 2003 Dariusz fell in love with snowboarding, very first winter after arriving in USA. 5 years later he was already competing in Snowboardcross USASA Nationals 2009, 2010 (biggest event in US for amateur snowboarders). In 2007 his focus was on Kiteboarding, since he thought it could benefit snowboarding during off season. But quickly understood that it’s much more than that, lol. He got instantly addicted and until today he’s passionate about this great sport as he was the first time when he got on the board. After that Snowkiting was just a natural progression.
