Hi, my name is Tim-Kevin Ravnjak. My discipline is snowboard freestyle. My friends call me TK. I was born on 5 November 1996 in Celje, Slovenia. My special talent is skateboarding. My philosophy of life is to get something you never had, you have to do something you've never done. The most important person in my life is my dad. My favourite food is pizza. My favourite music is songs in snowboarding movies.

Bio

Growing up in Slovenia, Tim-Kevin Ravnjak never had the opportunity to experiment with many different sports. As a kid, he did what most kids his age do; he played soccer. But when he was 6, his parents bought him his first snowboard and from that moment on, soccer was a thing of the past as he began to focus solely on going pro on a board.

By 2007, at just 11-years-old, Tim-Kevin was already starting to win Burton AM Tours across the globe, going on to become the overall winner of the competition three years in a row. Then in 2010, he claimed 2nd places in both the Slopestyle and the Halfpipe events at the Burton European Junior Open in Laax, Switzerland and went on to win the Slopestyle event the year after.

More recent highlights include twice winning the FIS Junior World Championships (2012 and 2014) and claiming the silver medal at the 2012 Youth Olympic Games in Innsbruck.

The Slovenian rider’s life philosophy of “go big or go home” seems to ring true as he always relentlessly pulls out the stops. Tim-Kevin's goal is to win Air & Style but at the rate he’s going he’ll soon accomplish that and set his sights even higher!
