Yesterday I’ve met with an old snowboarding friend of mine Erik Harc. Erik is a member of Elan Freestyle team. It was nice to see him after a long time and see how he is doing. What projects in snowboarding he is planing and normal friendly chat like that.
He told me about an interesting project they are doing with a team of Pro snowboarders from Slovenia. They organized a team, called YU-GO First.
YUGO, was actually a car, produced in the ex-Yugoslavia. And this picture is a commercial for the American market. The car was the product of all nations of the Yugoslavia, united. And this message is carried on by this group of snowboarders. On their Vimeo Chanel they state: “”Yu-GO First” is a snowboard video project gathering relevant riders from ex-Yugoslavian countries, filmed in the season 2011/12. ”
It’s nice to see the reunification of once, brotherhood nations of this European region. And this is the trailer of the film, which will be available in January 2013 on this channel after the premiere tour around cities in the region.
The YU-GO First riders:
Žiga Rakovec, Aljoša Krivec, Dejan Hodžič, Nejc Pucko, Mitja Kodrič, Erik Harc, Peter Podlogar, Luka Podlogar, Palermo, Matic Zavodnik, Marko Grilc, Ana Rumiha, Urška Pribosič, Matevž Pristavec, Luka Jeromel and friends.
You go guys! YU-GO First.
