Words by Bartek Wolinski and Bartek (Jaws) Krzyszton and Photos by Wolis Photo.

Jaws told me about this place in December of last year and at that time we made plans to go there in the middle of this summer. This little stone-world is located in southern Poland. And finally it happened. In early October, myself, along with Jaws went to the "stone-world". The supernatural, perfect world.

bigquotesMy family originates from this part of Poland and I first explored this area when I was 14 years old. It was such a magical place to see for the first time and it still is just as amazing today. I can remember putting my bike on the roof of my grandfather's Fiat 126p and going here. I was doing my first drops while he was wandering the area picking mushrooms - great memories. - Jaws

  This area is not so easy to work with, under the leaves you can find very soft, dry sand and small stones. So you really need to search for proper dirt. Jaws was using a mini shovel, to work on some lips. To be honest he took the smallest one to quickly hide it incase someone was walking around.

  Skinny lip between the stones and air between rock and tree, that's the way to go for Jaws. He just dropped through with style.

bigquotesRiding there was an incredible adventure, I have explored that place in a new way, like nobody else has before. There is so much potential in these rocks. Wherever you look, you see lines, but they all would require some time in order to be rideable. - Jaws

  On a few rocks you could see some signatures, dates, names - there is so much history here.

 This area is just like one that is next to the bike park I run in Sussex. Sandstone like this is very old (135 million years) it is amazing to be around but it's protected so no riding, better for climbing anyway.
Great pics and awesome riding!

 Well, I think that these sandstone outcrops are quite younger (Upper Paleocene-Eocene - approx. 50 million years old).
In the Beskidy Mountains and their Foreland we have hundreds of such places Smile

 Wow, he is truely a total cool shredder who pushes the sport to the next level every time when he's out for a run or some cool photoshoots. The only thing which would be better is a video. Pictures say alot about the rider, the trail and the atmosphere, but nothing at all about the forces applied to the rider and how the bike interacts with the terrain and how big the hits are which jaws takes. Totally cool story but i would like to see a video. Cheers
