Snowboard Iskola

Czech snowboarder Jakub "Kuba" Hroneš secured his place in snowboarding history by successfully landing the world's first triple flip off a rail. This remarkable feat, officially titled the Switch Boardslide Switch Triple Underflip 1170, demanded years of meticulous preparation and a deep understanding of physics and mathematics to precisely calculate the measurements for the rail, rotation, and landing.

The feat unfolded along a specially constructed 10.5-metre rail, standing 1.7 meters high, located in Svatý Petr, a part of the renowned Špindlerův Mlýn ski resort in the Czech Republic.

Explaining the intricacies of the remarkable feat, Hroneš says: "The hardest part of this trick is the technicality of it because bouncing off something made of iron, spinning three times over your head, and landing back in the snow is a whole different thing than bouncing off the snow. You don't do these tricks much as it's extremely difficult to find obstacles of this type and calculate how it all works."

Hroneš's journey to this historic moment was marked by relentless perseverance and an unyielding commitment to pushing the boundaries of snowboarding. Reflecting on his arduous path, he remarks: "You could say I've been preparing for this trick the whole time I've been snowboarding because, in this sport, tricks build on each other. At 16, I managed to do this trick on a jump and immediately thought it could be done from the rail. A year later, I did a similar trick with two flips from the rail."

He made a breakthrough after competing in the Czech National Ski Championship in Vítkovice, securing second place in his category. Since then, Hroneš's rapid ascent in the snowboarding world has been clear, culminating in gold in slopestyle and silver in Big Air at the 2022 European Youth Olympic Games in Vuokatti, Finland. His future endeavors include aspirations for the 2026 Olympics and X Games.
