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…
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 is about “the people who inhabit, visit, surf and protect” the coasts from France to Portugal, known as “European surf highway”, which is what most of us do in the summer. I had gathered loads of footy in the past four years from all this places, so he invited me to help them out with my archive. I also offered to help him film while we were on the road, why I really enjoy working with him and always learn a lot on the way. We had super good times, surfed breaks I have never been to and saw a great part of Spain, so I enjoyed every bit of it.
Here is the first teaser for the project and make sure to check out all about it on the website…
I have been working on all sorts of projects these days, some for the money, some for the soul… but finally took some time for just pure pleasure, hehe.
Last call before rainy days, we went for the hills after a pretty long time. Luka got himself a new bomber, the board feels like snowboarding on asphalt and brought the longboarding vibes back to the KDC crew. The search for the perfect country road continues…
Snow shootings are pretty much over, glacier season is on… it is chill time.
Love organized a team week on Dachstein and unfortunately I had no time to film with them this year, so I was hyped to see my friends after a long time. It was more or less sun bathing, beers and doing laps with homies. I am sort of fed up with parks at the end of every winter, yet I had a blast! Now, I even plan to get back soon as possible, haha.
Thanks Seppi for everything… Love podcast should be online in a week, so stay tuned!
