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 six, 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.
