Timotej is a 24-year-old professional skateboarder from Ljubljana, Slovenia, who is traveling all over the world for the biggest skateboard competitions such as World Cup events, skateboard/festivals and filming/photo missions.
Timotej’s skateboarding story started in summer 2004, when his dad bought him his first skateboard as a gift for the end of a successful school year.
Since then, he has spent every single day on the skateboard. Nothing could ever be so important it would make him miss a session with his best friend (skateboard).
At first his parents didn’t really supported him, because they thought skateboarding was just one of the many sports Timi has already tried in the past, just a short-term distraction, which was only going to last a year or two. But after he started winning junior competitions, they gave in and started providing their full support.
Timi says he is grateful for everything his parents have given up because of his dreams, especially his dad driving him all around the Europe just for a competition.
In 2009 Timotej started traveling all over the World for the biggest skateboarding competitions. He started participating in the World Cup and other big skateboarding events worldwide.
Now he is filming big skate commercials, skateboard movies and is working on many other projects which enable him to live his dreams and to do what he loves the most – SKATEBOARDING.
