A new era of Vasek Klouda has come and led to global expansion of the sport itself, as well as all the products that have become a part of the culture. The combination of drive for continious success and desire to accomplish the unthinkable, hour of hard work have truly made Vasek Klouda an undisputed champion: at 31 he is the owner of 12 time world champion titles, 6 of which were earned in a row.

Vasek Klouda is an 14 time European and 9 time World Champion in freestyle footbag. Taekwondoo, tenis and being the captain of his chess team were some of those activities that laid the foundation for what later became the hobby of his life. Vasek’s ability to put all the time into hard work to master and perfect the new, never seen before tricks along with his openness, humbleness and modesty make Vasek Klouda a truly extraordinary athlete and a role model for the youth all over Europe and the rest of the world.

Such overwhelming success and ability to work with the any type of crowd puts Vaek ahead of the most, which is why such worldwide multinational brands such as Gillette, Adidas, McDonald's, Coca-Cola, Vodafone, K-Swiss, Skittles and Pepsi have been working with the talent for over than 10 years. Vasek Klouda is a frequent guest of TV shows among which a hollywood show "Jimmy Kimmel Live" and also one of the most poplular czech program named "Czechoslovakia is looking for talents".

At the peak of his career in 2008 football freestyle becomes another powerful tool in the arsenal of the Czech athlete. Utilizing the experience gained through years of playing footbag, now Vasek is demonstrating the tricks that even Ronaldinho could only dream of. On top of that, in 2009 Vasek Klouda creates the first Czech football freestyle association which makes a significant impact on the development of the sport and the industry as a whole.
