"In Croatia we shred what we have, and we don't have much..." All the props to the positive, can-do attitude of these Balkan boarders.
Vid Baric, a Croatian rider who was part of the Yougofirst crew from a few years back, has gone and got himself a proper job in the real world, but that doesn't stop him shredding whenever he can on his local mountain near Zagreb.
They don't have much, but make the most of what they do, for which we can only give them the biggest of internet high fives. Always gets us stoked to see riders turn the little they've got into something dope, so PROPS Sljeme crew! Hopefully the mountain will get it together in the future to build features for this scene to get even more creative with!
"It's been few years and now I am living fully grown-up life with full time job but I still enjoy snowboarding with Croatian buddies on Sljeme, a small mountain near the capital city Zagreb, where I live and work now. It's been few years since I last was snowboarding in real park and travelling, but i am enjoying snowboarding more than ever.
The past winter I've been filming some micro shred and improvising up there, which I am really thankful for."
