I want to create a good, healthy and successful family, to build a house, where will grow up my future children, to win more competitions, to work on the central TV channel, to build my own successful business and to travel more!

One of the most important factors in the career for me is faith of the audience on TV and radio; in wakeboarding is a lack of fear during the new elements training on the water. Riding without traumas.

Direct speech: «One of the most vivid impression is a trip to Anapa to Cable Wakeboard Worlds 2008. I haven't ridden for all summer season 2008 because of knee trauma. So I come to Anapa just to comment on how girls and guys ride. But the organizers tell me: “Guy, you’ll take part in the competition, we signed you up !” I thought that I couldn’t ride with “one leg”, but I didn’t refuse the participation”. So missing all calendar competitions and cups I took part in Cable Wakeboard World championship which is held once every two years. The result is Silver medal! I’m lucky, thanks the Lord!”

About travels: I dream of jorney to America, to Orlando, to Tagus, to Hawaii, to New Zealand, to the Philippines.

About work: I dream of working not for «somebody» and to have enough money for my family and friends, for me and for journeys of course!
