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.
