I was getting really feed up with editing for the past month and it is clearly not a good time for this… but south winds and Adriatic sea really came my way!
We still had some heats to run for JugoMajstr, so the comp was set for Thursday. But it looked kind of doable also a day before, so we went for a little “mind off, wax on” getaway.
First day we got pretty big, mushy waves and it was all about power and speed… a little sketchy at times, but after a week of webcast from 5-8ft at Sunset, Hawaii, it felt so good to get some heavy rides (and wipeouts of course, hehe).
Second day we ran the contest in the morning and got a super fun glassy session after… I managed to check second option for the POV shots from water (first time I got a bit unlucky, remember) and got the best wave count in a single session ever, no joke! Click for more pics…
So tired, yet so pumped to get back on the Untouched project… stay tuned!
My biggest project so far, the Untouched project, is only a month away from seeing the light of day!
The daily routine is totally vampire now, but the cool thing is I get to see the sunrise and the sunset every day… just the other way around, hehe.
Here is everything you need to check, if you are interested in the video: FB event, ticket purchase and website for more info…
The skiers teaser is also out, so check who’s in and get ready for the 20th December premiere in Kino Šiška!
Here is the clip from second day of the JugoMajstr. We managed to run the first heat of the semis and I just missed the finals… maybe next year, hehe.
There is one more heat of the semis and both women and men finals to surf, so keep on checking the forecast, the series is not even half done…
There is only a good month before the Untouched project will be premiered in Kino Šiška, so my working hours are going crazier everyday… first teas is already out, it is the snowboarders lineup… are you happy?!
Here is the video from the weekend on D-Stone. It turned out pretty cool… check the whole thing below!
Thanks to Migl, Basti, Balint, Yurij, balkan brotherhood and the rest of the Qparks crew for the good times…
Pleasure Jam is always exhausting and I planned to get some quality rest… until I realized I am competing in JugoMajstr semifinals today!
It was not the best conditions, I guess we all thought it is going to be a lot bigger, but whatever, you don’t get to surf in Adriatic that often. I decided to get some water footy while in contest, just to combine work and fun… never hurts to stock some Medulin footy, hehe.
It was the 10th anniversary of the Pleasure Jam on Dachstein and this is also the start of the filming season at Qparks. It was my third year there and it was probably the most fun so far.
Basti always prepares an interesting concept for the main clip, this time it will be all macro stuff. It was super cool to get a totally different perspective on things… can’t wait!
Second thing was that pretty much everyone from our (expanded) snowboard scene were there. It was nice to see everybody on the spot. Urška even took the 3rd place at the event to keep the vibes up on the windiest day on the mountain ever… Congrats!
Winter pattern of “surfing one day, riding pow the next” is what you are dreaming of from December on, but this time it started early!
A sizeable amount of snow pilled in the mountains already and of course you can not count on building big powder kickers anytime soon, but everybody is getting into winter vibes with riding pipes and random jibs.
This cool tree jib was so much fun. I love progressive tricks brought into natural environment, it just shows true skills. And some green moss on the side of the trees really makes the icing on the shots for me, hehe.
Everybody was really motivated although it rained pretty bad. I can not wait for the real winter!
Jugo Majster is an annual surf contest, where slovenian waveriders get together, tell stories about summer trips and enjoy some “competitive” heats.
While the conditions are super hard to tell, the waiting period stretches over few months, but November holidays always bring some days in the water. Thursday was the first day we tried to make it happen, but it all turned into a layday. Winds were simply to strong to keep the faces standing, let alone to get a fair heat for everybody. Everybody got to freesurf, so nothing was lost basically, hehe.
I wanted to leave early, but Katja convienced me to take a quick peek at Barbariga. Good call, I got one of the top three sessions in Adriatic and still returned home before dark!
