If I cash 1.000.000€ in the lottery then...

I would give some of it to my parents, buy myself some stuff like electronics, and maybe a trampoline, and a pool…And most of all i would like to buy my family a trip to somewhere nice. I spent really a lot of time out of home and it would be nice being together for a while. Right now i don't even know how could i spend that amount of money.

 

An Affair to Remember...

Well i have a lot of things that i could never forget but i think that the one that will always stay in my memory is the trip to Brasil in 2011 with my family and our friends. I really had a time of my life.

Great see, food, drink spending time with people I care for, awesome.

 

What means snowboarding to you?

It`s a lifestyle. Means everything to me. Spending time on infinite pure white slopes, full of obstacles, jumps, perfect pipe – priceless. It actually means my life.It's sure having fun but if you want to be successful you need to train hard and you need a lot of support. The level is just getting higher and higher every day, so let`s see….

 

Has your life changed beeing a snowboard pro?

I am not a snowboard pro yet, but i hope i will become one someday. Trying to improve myself every day.

 

What kind of rider are you?

I like to ride both pipe and slope style. Sometimes I like to ride powder if it's possible. I ride camber for pipe and camber or flat rocker for slope style.

 

Your signature trick & favorite obstacle?

I don't have a signature trick yet. But it will come very soon.

 

Which trick do you want to learn next?

Back to back 10 in pipe and bs double corck 10 in slopestyle.

 

The place to be?

LAAX, Switzerland because it's like fairy tale in winter. Pipe the have there is amazing.

 

What is uncool, old fashioned?

I like baggy style clothes, the sickest grab is tuck knee. I actually like "old school" style. It's kind of unique style and crazy tricks.

 

How do you motivate yourself and learn new tricks?

Besides Snowboarding I train ice hockey, which helps me to stay in shape in all respects. Wave surfing for softness, gymnastic for tricks...

 

You had any dangerous situations on the mountain so far?

Not yet. I hope never happens.

 

What do you like most about Völkl Snowboards?
Hi-tec products. Very durable. They are nice designed all kind of products. Very fashionable. Congrats to designers and all other involved.

 

Highlights of last season?

Being on podium on World rookie tour in Livigno and Burton European Open in Laax with guys from Finland, USA and Australia. I will never forget that. I will try to repeat these moments as much as possible.

 

Blue bird & perfect conditions - who should be in your riding crew?

I like to ride with the guys from my Slovenian team all over the world, cause we have been riding together for more than 6 years and we know each other perfectly. Until the don't become annoying of course, but it happens only after few weeks.

 

The besst Snowboard trip ever was...

Colorado USA last year. Riding in Breckenridge, Keystone, nice.

 

What stuff is in your backpack when you head up to ride or travel?

Helmet, drink, food, gloves, phone, passport and money.

 

What do you do when you are not riding?

Ice hockey when I am at home during winter. Sailing, diving, vawe surfing, wake boarding, skating... I have to do something all the time, otherwise I am so bored. I hate this.

 

In five years I want...

...I want to be a pro rider and finish High School. Go to the Olympic Games in 2018
