World, meet Jakub Nemec.

Originally hailing from Pilsen, Czech Republic, the twenty four year old Crested Butte resident is one of the best kayakers in the world. Jakub kayaks for Sweet Protection, Pyrahna Kayaks, Werner Paddles, and Astral Buoyancy Company. Jakub recently got 6th in the Teva Games and is on his way to Hood River for more. We look forward to seeing what he produces this season. In the meantime, check out his 2011 season edit and other videos of his adventures.
