“This project is a mix of my last 2 seasons of street skating. I filmed the first part in 2021 but then got a serious injury. I needed to take a break and whenever I checked the stuff I already filmed, it did not make me happy at all. However, my brother Eryk saw it completely different, so I agreed to let him edit it anyway. He definitely took out the best out of these clips, for which I am extremely grateful”.
“In March 2022 during a photo shoot with Wiktor Głowacki I had the most serious accident of my whole blading venture so far. I still can feel its effects even today. Since the accident, my street skating was very limited. I had to set new goals all the time to get my confidence back, but still the most important thing for me was to keep having a good time while doing it. I spent most time at the skateparks, where I gained self-confidence and realized that I don’t have to expect so much from myself, that the most important thing for me is just to enjoy the session and not to have a sick ambition to impress someone. During these 8 months I not only changed my attitude to skating, but also had to work on my body. Once a week I went to a physiotherapist, who made me realize how much work with my fresh scar is ahead of me. If it wasn’t for the doctors’ help, I probably wouldn’t have get back to skating at all, not to mention the pain that accompanied me during the healing process like constant migraine pains, drug states that could keep me awake in the middle of the night and keep me awake, toothaches, and many other things that caused incredible discomfort”.
“So finishing the part was hard. However, at the very end of the year I went to Barcelona with Tomek Przybylik,Eryk Pilch and Piotr Gbyl. It was really there that I skated street for the first time since the accident, realizing that I didn’t have to expect anything from myself, just enjoy the moment and spend my time the best way I wanted. During these 2 years a lot has really changed in my life, and I owe a lot to my family and friends who have been there for me. I would like to thank them sincerely for that”.
“To my wonderful girlfriend, who was by my side all the time in the most difficult moments after the accident, you are my biggest support and I love you very much. To my brother Eryk who is my biggest inspiration not only when it comes to the skating itself, the approach to filming and the unique vision of blading. He had an incredible influence on my personal development. I love you and am very grateful for the time you have given me. To my whole family: my sister Ada who gave me tons of positive energy and support. To my Mom and Dad to whom I really owe a lot. My physiotherapist Zuzanna, without whom I would not be where I am. The best skater crew in the world ‘Skateroom crew’ thanks to whom I get the best energy to shred. Tomek Przybylik, who gave me a lot of motivation to still skate and without whom my trip to Barcelona probably would not have happened. I love you brother. Piotr Gbyl, Michał Kaliściak for his time spent on stacking with me on the streets. Kuba Olejarz and Paweł Komosa for giving a huge dose of childish juice and excitement every day. The whole neighbourhood for a lot of support. And finally Wiktor Głowacki and Mateusz Bączkowicz for the best photos and for being the best homies. I love you all. - Patryk Pilch.
