We spread love for SUP and nature.
Founder of Bovec SUP and paddleboarder by soul. Even as a small kid, my parents couldn’t get me out of the water. And it stayed with me til now.:-)
I have been guiding whitewater kayaking and rafting since 2012, but when paddleboarding came into the picture, my future path was clear. I love seeking hidden places on the water to explore, and as whitewater is my natural habitat, I had to try my SUP on the river. Since then, whitewater paddleboarding has been my biggest passion and challenge!
After seeing so many people renting paddleboards and struggling with maintaining balance and paddling straight, I decided to change it. I made an ISA SUP instructor certification to follow the highest standards, and we opened the Bovec SUP door as a team of two. Our expectations were not high, as we started in the rough year of 2020. The future of tourism was uncertain, and the world faced different challenges. But here we are, a few years later, guiding hundreds of people through the emerald waters of the Soča Valley and living our dream!
P. S. I believe that there are no untalented people for sports, but only unskilled guides. I enjoy sharing my experience and love for paddleboarding, and I am sure that I will make you fall in love with it as well.:-)
