Marek Zaprazny on Skating BCN

May 192017

We sat down with Slovakian athlete Marek Zaprazny, while training for the SLS Nike SB Pro Open competition in Barcelona, and told us about his routine, his days in Barcelona and all the fun he is having at SLS so far.   We will certainly have to keep an eye on him these days, because Marek is on fire.

Hey Marek, lets start with a little history. When and where did you first start Skateboarding?

I started skating when right before I was turning 12, so its been good 15 years till now. I was in a small town in Slovakia called Zavod, then after a year we moved to Malacky.

Is it the first time you have participated in SLS?

Yup, first time!

How does it feel to be invited?

It feel’s good, never thought It was gonna happen to me.

Who are you most looking forward to watch Skate in the Barcelona Open?

Everybody pretty much. The level of skating is so high it's good to watch. Also everyone is coming up with new sh*t all the time so it's pretty impressive to watch.

Where will you be in the lead up to the event? Are you still living in Barcelona?

I have few trips coming up in Europe so i'll be traveling a little bit before SLS.

Do you have any typical routine in the lead up to an event like this? Or are you just out in the streets every day?

Not really, I am just trying to skate as I usually would. For sure I am gonna cruise the park before the contest couple times but no strategies. Just mostly in the streets.

Where do you normally like to Skate when home?

Macba is the best to just skate but you have to come early if u really wanna skate it.

Any last words?

Thanks SLS and Monster Energy for making it happen!
