About SROKA Company Watersport ?

“Some people live their dream and some people dream their life, I am part of the first group”.
Bruno always dreamed of being a world champion windsurfer and lived vicariously through windsurfing magazines. At the age of 23, he tried kitesurfing for the first time. It took a few boards for him to stop windsurfing and devote himself fully to kitesurfing. From 2001, it was the beginning of a long series of victories at French and international level. He practiced all disciplines (Freestyle, wave and slalom) without reaching his ultimate goal.
In 2004, he almost reached his goal by becoming vice world champion in wave in Portugal. His quest for victory remains unscathed and strengthens year after year. Progressing and getting closer to the top spot has been a real source of motivation for this sportsman. From 2005 to 2006, he won the various French championship titles.
His dream will be fulfilled in 2007 when, during the same year, he won the title of French, European and World Champion. He spent almost 8 years to reach his goal. But there is no doubt that Bruno does not want to stop there, he will be again world champion in 2009 and 2010 and will remain on the podiums until 2013.

Bruno Sroka is a person who lives for and by the sea. He spends most of his time on the water kitesurfing, stand up and surfing. In 2009, he revolutionized the kiterace by having developed with Paolo Rista, his designer, the Race boards. This allowed him to win the two existing circuits to make everyone agree. Out of 16 competitions that took place in 2009, he won 12 and stayed on the podium 15 times this year. A real achievement!

In parallel to the competition, Bruno was looking for adventure. In April 2008, he launched himself into a crazy challenge, that of sailing 100 nautical miles across Cape Horn. He is the first and only man to have crossed Cape Horn in kitesurfing to this day and to have covered more than 100 nautical miles in the roaring 40s.

He continued with many adventure projects, such as the crossing of the Gulf of Aqaba, the record of the crossing of the English Channel on the long part and to finally carry out an even crazier exploit: To connect France to Ireland in kitesurf. It’s a project that was completed in 2013, covering 450 km in 16 hours and 40 minutes non stop.

Stand up paddle is for him the best way to train physically with friends, to maintain his inner balance after each big adventure project. The foils are incredible machines to fly over the water with ease.

About SROKA company

“Some people live their dream, others dream their life. I’m in the first category.”

Bruno had always dreamed of being a world champion windsurfer, living his dream vicariously through windsurfing magazines. He first tried kitesurfing at the age of 23, and after a few boards decided to give up windsurfing altogether and devote himself entirely to kitesurfing. 2001 marked the beginning of a long list of French and International victories. Despite competing in all disciplines (Freestyle, Wave and Slalom), his ultimate goal continued to elude him.

He nearly achieved it in 2004, winning silver in the World Wave Championships in Portugal. His pursuit of victory continued undiminished, intensifying as each year passed. This was an athlete driven by his desire to progress and to edge ever closer to the top spot. After a number of national victories in 2005 and 2006,

his dream finally came true in 2007 when he won the French, European and World titles, all in the same year. Bruno took eight years to achieve his ambition, but he was not about to to stop there. World champion again in 2009 and 2010, he remained on the podiums until 2013.

a propos de SROKA Company Watersports

Bruno Sroka lives for the sea, and the sea is his life. He spends most of his time on the water, on a kitesurf, stand-up paddle board or surf board. In 2009, he and his designer Paolo Rista developed race boards which revolutionised kite racing, and when Bruno won the two existing circuits on them, the world took note. He won 12 of the 16 competitions in 2009, with podium finishes in 15 of them. A superb achievement!  

Bruno also had a thirst for adventure that matched his competitive ambitions. In April 2008, he took on the phenomenal challenge of kitesurfing 100 nautical miles across Cape Horn, making him the first (and still the only) man to cross Cape Horn on a kitesurf, and to have covered 100 nautical miles in the Roaring Forties.

 Further adventurous exploits followed, such as crossing the Gulf of Aqaba, breaking the record for crossing the widest part of the English Channel, and the even more incredible feat of kitesurfing from France to Ireland. He completed this non-stop, 450 km crossing in 16 hours 40 minutes in 2013.

For Bruno, stand-up paddle boarding is the best way to train with friends, and to restore his inner balance after each of his great adventures. Foils are extraordinary, beautifully simple vehicles for flying over water.
