Aljaž Požes

Date of Birth:



Ljubljana / Slovenia



Board Setup:

Strike, Falcon

Competition ranking you’re most proud of:

Vice champion Sprint at the Slovenian National Championships.

Your favourite contest and why:

Ljubljanica SUP Challenge (organized by local SupKlub). Because I came as a track athlete thinking I would finish somehow. But I had endurance, power and a lot of training before,…well, it turned out my arms suffered a lot during 2.5km race due to bad technique and lack of other skills such as balance and also poor equipment – most suitable for having fun, not racing. At that time I decided to push it further and improve myself in many ways.

Your favourite SUP adventure:

Tenerife (catching first waves) & Adriatic sea downwinds.

Number one on your bucket list:

paddle/compete “Hawaii” race (Maliko run etc.)

Soundtrack of your life:

1. Michael Jackson – Will you be there
2. Queen – Don’t stop me now
3. Siddharta – Na soncu

I love...

... my family first. Then comes the board :P

When I go partying ...

... I come back next day at brunch time.

For the perfect SUP day there has to be...

... sea and sunrise.

If you could be an animal, what would it be?

Eagle or Falcon.

If you could be a character from a movie, who would you be?

When I was a kid I was jealous of Jesse from “Free Willy”.
