Slovenian snowboarder Urska Pribosic recently graced the the cover of the Blue Tomato snowboard catalog and was recently featured in Lipstick Productions short film No Place Like Home. Never one to miss a joke or prank, Pribosic’s Lipstick Productions rider profile lists “Honesty” as a virtue she has, followed comically by “Lying” as a bad habit.
We had a chance to track down Flow Global Ambassador Urska Pribosic to ask her a few questions about her growing up snowboarding, her summer & winter travels, as well as being featured in the new Lipstick Productions film “Something.” Her jovial nature shone through on a few of her answers. Have a read.
Where is home for you Urska, currently?
Earth… most of the time.
Did you ever ski before you started snowboarding?
Yes and I still sometimes do, just to be reminded how much better snowboarding is.
Do you listen to any music when you ride?
If I remember to take it with me…so no. And even if I do remember the battery is usually dead.
What is your current snowboarding setup? Board, boots, bindings?
I ride flow Velvet 146 for park and street, for powder I use a Velvet 150. Boots wise I sue the Deelite coiler. My bindings are the Minx GT.
Where was the first place you went snowboarding?
Pokljuka. I straight went for powder but didn’t go very far.
What would you consider your home mountain to be?
Vogel and Dachstein. Even though Dachstein is in Austria, I’ve been there so many times it feels like home.
Where was your favorite snowboarding trip last winter?
To Georgia (but not the US one…)
Where are you looking forward to riding next winter?
The United States…
Have you ever visited North America to snowboard at all?
Yes, in Colorado. Copper Mountain and Breckenridge and in Canada. BC & Quebec.
What is your favorite place to travel to for snowboarding?
The one I have never been to.
What is your favorite place to travel to not for snowboarding?
Asia. I like their culture more than western culture.
How has your summer been? What have you been up to to stay in shape for the winter?
Great! I went cycling from Slovenia to Portugal. It took me one month. The spent the next month resting from the previous trip.
Did you snowboard much in the summer with all the glacier and summer snowboarding access you have in Europe?
We have some glaciers around Austria and France that are also good in summer but I’m usually not very motivated to ride in summer. I do think about other stuff (in the summer).
Are you involved in any activities, events or films coming up that you would like the Flow Snowboarding supporters to look out for?
Yes! There is “Something,” the movie from Lipstick Productions. It’s coming out soon.
Any advice to they younger riders, looking to get sponsored or become a professional snowboarder?
Don’t forget that your doing it out of passion… Hopefully not to get sponsored.
Tell us about filming with Lipstick Productions. I saw your part in “Boobilicious…” Are there any other videos or edits that we should be looking out for?
Filming with Lipstick is the best part of the season. Yes, you should look out for our new movie Something.
