Objectives of the thesis are clearly formulated in all three common categories - theory, analysis and proposal part. In the analytical part I didn't find clearly defined strengths and weaknesses of the company as promised at the beginning of the thesis. Analytical part is pretty detailed (45 pages) and describes quite well the situation on the market. The use of author's own questionnaire is good idea, especially in strategic branding. I would recommend to use even-numbered scale in all kinds of surveys to eliminate vague responses. I would appreciate to hear stronger opinion from the author in some areas of the analysis (e.g. in the evaluation of competitive position - statement "It could be seen as Virtika´s advantage or also risk. It depends on point of view." It sounds very indefinite. So, IS it the advantage or NOT? What is your point of view? Market in this domain is quite competitive. It would be interesting to assess, if there is any potential to use Blue Ocean strategy, respectively identify and design Value Curve, that enables to formulate the right values - different from the rest of the market. This is not criticism, just the inspiration for the author. The practical part is based on previous analysis and it is obvious, that author knows the market situation well and is interested in action sports industry. All proposals based on Ko Floor's branding concept sound realistic and viable. Concerning the English language, the text is comprehensible, nevertheless freguent grammar mistakes are present (missing subject/verb, sg./pl. mixed up, incorrect conjugation in 3rd person, etc.). Final formatting could be done more carefully, e.g. headlines are placed at the end of page several times. There are conclusions stated at the end of each analytical sub-chapter, but it is not easy to find main ideas quickly. I would recommend to highlight more main ideas and conlusions in graphical and/or formating manner. Pictures are provided in a quite bad quality (in pdf file format). There are quite a few typing errors (unfortunately poorly detectable by autocorrect function). List of (mostly online) cited resources is quite long and quotations are well declared.
