Andraž is a versatile sportsman with big love to nature. He comes from Slovenia, the country of high mountains, wild rivers, but also near the sea, which influenced him for a whole life. As most of Slovenians he learned winter sports as a child – skiing, snowboarding, he competed in ski jumping and cross-country skiing. But still, the winter hasn’t intrigued him as much as beautiful summer conditions by the sea. He discovered windsurfing thanks to his father, when he was 8 years old. Since then windsurfing has been his biggest passion. He traveled the world in order to discover new windsurf destinations and to gain new experience. In 2004 Andraž started with freestyle competitions and attended European and World cup events. His best result is 13th place in overall ranking in World Cup, 4th place in overall ranking in European Freestyle Pro Tour and he is the latest official Slovenian freestyle champion. Due to sport education, sharing experience and a good eye for mistakes, Andraž opened a windsurf school “Windsurf Camps”. Since then he is sharing experience with many people who have the same passion for windsurfing all around the world. According to the most certain wind, one of the best conditions for windsurfing and all the other outdoor activities, you can accompany Andraž on Karpathos.
