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!

Autumn colors are taking over and it is a perfect time to catch the last warm days and enjoy the outdoors.
I kinda missed out on (non snow related) mountaineering for the past three years, so I got really hyped when ideas about climbing some peaks started flying. My friends and I hiked the whole weekend, a bit for fun and a bit for spot searching. Got to know where to go when all is trapped in whites, hehe.
According to the media we are looking into one hell of a winter, starting with this weekends snowfall… would be about time, so bring it!
A must see from Slovenia’s finest, Marko Grilc… bangin’!
Colours is a artist collective based in my home town, Kranj. They say that “…in music no size, shape or colour is inappropriate. Anything goes. It’s just how creative you are in welding them together thus building your own rainbow of sounds. As colours are, music can also be artificially composed or purely organic. It can fade away in a couple of moments after it was revealed or it can last forever. Some might like it and some might not. It triggers emotions. It takes you away. It connects you to other beautiful minds. It can work as a background for your personal soul-searching or as a media for expressing your deepest passions, moods and feelings. Anything that you see or imagine while listening to the music, no matter how tangible or abstract, bares some dye. Welcome to our world of Colours in which we’ve combined the power of music with the influence of colours.”
It is super nice to be part of a creative group like this, we already have some cool ideas for their campaign, so stay tuned!
Here is the teaser for their upcoming event in K4, drop by and show your true colours…
