Why do you love SUP? 

I love stand up paddling because it is such an amazing sport where you can feel the water with every stroke you make, ride waves, have fun and enjoy in beautiful nature all at the same time.

How did you start Stand up paddling? 

I started stand up paddling when I was 9 years old. My dad had to quit windsurfing due to injury, so he sold all the equipment and bought a sup board. I tried it and I absolutely fell in love with it.

Your heroes? 

Kai Lenny and Manca Notar. They inspire me with their hard work and passion and keep me motivated with their amazing paddling.

Best drink after an SUP training Session? 

For me, water is always the best thing to drink after SUP training session and it keeps me hydrated for a very long time.

Favourite paddling spot: 

My favourite paddling spot is Croatian seaside where I usually train over the summer, but when I just want to relax for a bit a day before the race, I like to go paddling on our beautiful Ljubljanica river and just enjoy paddling under Triple bridge and enjoy the views of our city centre.

Favourite piece of clothing on SUP: 

My favourite  piece is definitely StandOut neoprene suit that keeps me warm on cold paddling days, but in the summer the StandOut neoprene shorts are definitely my favourite.

Favourite meal: 

I am a huge meat lover so every type of meat is fine, but Carniolan sausage is one of my favourite . I also like Broccoli with some sour cream on the side as well.
