Kayak center Most na soči

Kajak Klub SOške elektrarne Most na Soči has been operating since 2001. Kayaking took place in Most soon after the Second World War, but organized trainings began in this subalpine place under the leadership of visionary Dejan Testen more than twenty years ago. At the beginning in very modest rooms by the lake below Modrej. But it was in those humble spaces that, after just a few years, they grew into one of the greatest successes of the entire club. The duo Sašo Taljat – Luka Božič first approached the world top in the youth team, then won the highest titles in the U23 category. Soon bronze at world slalom championships, followed by gold medals at the world championships, performance at the 2012 Olympics . Then in 2013 the title of world champions in C2 slalom. After ten years of focusing on slalom and white water canoe, Testen started and developed the discipline of flat waters, where the competitors from Most also reached the world top very quickly. Rok Kuk – Lovro Leban were the first to win a medal at the World Cup and the U23 European Championships in the K2 1000m. This was followed by the launch of the recreational section. The branch office at Most has developed very rapidly over the years. As practically the only club in Slovenia, Most is developing the discipline of flat waters, wild water canoe and slalom at a top level. In 2018, the club moved from the premises in Modrej to the ‘Water House’ by the bridge over the Soča and became even more lively there. Today, under the auspices of three coaches, a group of beginners (kayak school), a development group up to 14 years of age and a competition group for flat and wild waters operate in Most. The development of flat waters on Most na Soči has become a reference point for domestic and foreign clubs and teams that often visit the club on the lake below the Alps in the summer.
