The idea of the festival arose among a group of friends also of Jakub’s mates. He was a great freeboarder, snowboarder, wakeboarder. Generally speaking, he had a huge passion for all kinds of sport associated with boards. Additionally, he was a good student of architecture. On the 22th of April 2011 Jakub died at the age of 20 in a tragic accident, only several weeks after having acquired his first proffesion- a snowboarding instructor. Indomitable energy and contagious optimism were the qualities characterizing Futek. In order to fulfill his desire we decided to create the memorial. Our wish is to make the festival an annual event that gathers all boarding sports in one place at one time.
