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.
Every year Ujusansa organizes slovenian national championships in surfing, called the JugoMajstr a.k.a. Master of the South winds. It takes place in Medulin, Croatia, which is a little strange for “nationals” to be held in foreign country, but for Slovenian surfers it is the closest surfbreak, like it or not.
The first one was in 2006 and it was basically a soul session of few guys, yet in past few years the slovenian surf community grew to a point where we have more than forty competitors applying, some also from Austria, Hungary and even Brazil. It got a little bit serious, a bit better organized and maybe even a bit more fun, while you get pretty much all your surfer friends in one place for a day or two.
Medulin is a good break, yet it works mostly in winter time, thus the late season call. We call it cold winter classic, because booties and hoddies are sort of mandatory to last more than an hour in the lineup, haha.
The teaser below is from last year, but anyway, you can get a pretty good picture what we are hoping for… more info about the competition here…
