Team PowerkiteMaciej Dubinski (1972) and Michal Slowinski (1981) of Team Poland (aka Team Borderline and Team Powerkite) can’t decide on their team name. Nevertheless, they’re still friends and back for the third time to try and finish the race. Last year they made it to Vadsø.

Maciej started snowkiting in 2010, Michal in 2009. They are Polish, but live in Sweden. They mostly kite in the Swedish mountains. They’ve been on several longer trips in Padjlenta, Härjedalen and other places. Their home spot is lake Störsjön. Most of the activities, they do together.

Here’s a movie from their trip to Padjelanta in March 2014.

When studying, Maciej was a member of a Mountain Rescue group in Poland for a couple of years. 

Special skills

Maciej is a doctor. Michal is a sailing instructor and an engineer. Great combo!


“We want to participate in VAKE because we really want to finish this race. It will be our third attempt. Also, it’s great to kite and compete with kiters from different nations. We think this an awesome race!”
