Pirate holidays

When I started to skate, the culture was all about punk rock and hardcore. It engulfed riding, music and attitude and that will probably stick with my perception of what skateboarding should be forever. And I will be a skateboarder forever. Period!

Past weekend we had an unique opportunity to see and hear a handful of punk rock legends and heroes of our youth at Punk Rock Holiday 1.1 in Tolmin. Bad Religion, NoFX, Strung Out, Hot Water Music, Real Mckenzies, Bouncing Souls… to name just a few, plus some great less famous bands (Street Dogs, Total Chaos…).

It was just ragging three days of beer, grill, eye-patches, water diving, midnight boxing punch-outs and all around shenanigans! It was one of thoose vacations you get home more beat up than before you left. And I mean literary, haha!

Eat my dirt!

My friends at Mountainboard Slovenia started to build a mountainboard track under our local hill. There is a cool short video on their site to get a clue whats up.

I have to many hobbies and to little time already, but this looked so much like snowboarding, I just knew this is it, haha. We have been improving and shredding the course for the past month and it just gets sicker and longer every week. Its a perfect starting point and the crew is super cool there, so don not hesitate to drop by if you are in need of some summer freeride stoke!

Widen your experience

Many of my friends are really into kiteboarding and its actually a very versatile sport. You can hit any surface from dirt to water to snow so its never boring.

I went to film the first takes for a short commercial for Mountainboardshop.eu which is a cool little project with no real deadline yet. Basically it was just relaxed fun day out with friends while trying to get a hold of the dynamics of the sport they love.
