Like two drops of water
North Kiteboarding team rider and European Champion Paula Novotná teamed up with good friend and 9 x World Champion Gisela Pulido to make 'Like two drops of water.' Filmed by Andre Magaro, it takes place in the Kiteboarding mecca of Brazil.
The inspiration behind the movie is to show the world what it takes to be at the top! As both riders spend a lot of time travelling together on the PKRA they often train, ride and stay fit together, so documenting the action and lifestyle seemed only natural to both women.
Paula acknowledges that having a good friend who pushes you both on and off the water, and is someone you can trust offers great advantages. “ Brazil is one of the best places to train. The wind is steady, the weather warm and the flat waters of the lagoons are world class. That's why we come back to Brazil every year to train and improve our riding” say's Novotná.
Training for Paula is 50% on the water and 50% on land. “ We are women and ride as hard as the men. The thing is, naturally we are not as strong as them, so it's really important for us to train in the gym as well. It helps to keep injuries at bay which is my major concern.” Well said Paula!
So sit back, relax and get ready to see the girls in action!
