Hi I’m Michael Polanowski. I’m 20. I have an older brother Marek. My home town is Ciechocinek, this is a small town in the middle of Poland.

Since my childhood I have been interested in extreme sports. As a ten year old boy I started rollerskating and skateboarding. I always wanted to take a sport as a profession, but it wasn’t it. My parents wanted me to play tennis but for luck I was too old. Two years later I tried motocross and at the first moment I fell in love with it. From the beginning trained a lot, I even built the course for ridding. When I was 15 I was planning to take part in motocross racing. But my parents changed my plans and sent me to Leba windsurfing camp.
From the beginning I loved it. I enjoyed so much that when my group had break I was still on the water. After 2 weeks training on lake in Leba I was already planning and using both straps.
And a month later, took part in Polish Youth Championships. Since this time windsurfing become for me not just a sport but also a life style.

I am using STARBOARD and I do not want to change it. I like new ideas which create new trends in windsurfing.
I use DEBOICHET custom fins, that is why I can choose the perfect model and stiffness for me.
Last year I started my studies on WSPiZ, name Leon Kozminski in Worsow. Knowladge which I got there helped me in my life.
