Hi guys!

2016 just ended and for me it was a great year! I realized what I really want to do and I started working on it, I changed my mindset, challenged myself and found myself enjoying life! I also started this blog in order to share my lifestyle and my values, the Sine Metu way of life with you guys. And since 2017 just started I’m setting some goals for this year. Don’t worry it’s none of that “new year-new me” bullshit, it’s a bucket list of things I want to do in the following year and I’m telling you this because all of these adventures will be shared right here on the blog. This is mostly just things that either popped into my mind just now or have been on it for quite a while, but it’s far from complete! I’ll probably be throwing stuff in all the time, whether small tasks or big challenges, it’s nice to have it all written down and posted on your wall to keep yourselves motivated.

Caution: Horribly drawn illustrations below!

Surfing:
-I’ve been dreaming of going surfing since I was a child and lately that urge to finally learn how to surf has grown stronger and stronger. I believe it’s finally time to give it a go and take a little surf trip! The plan is to go to a surf camp in Spain for 2 weeks and I’m fucking stoked just thinking about it. This is definitely one of the main goals for the 2017! Let loose in the real Sine Metu way.

New Gear:
– I’ve been shooting pretty much everything on my Canon 70D with a Sigma 17-50mm f/2.8 lens and while it’s not a bad starting setup, I’m starting to crave for a bit more quality and other options. First thing on my list is the DJI Ronin M gimbal to get all the smooth shots! I usually film all my videos handheld which doesn’t really give me much manouvre space, so this stabilizer would give me a lot of room for more creative shots!
The second thing I’d like to do is to switch to a Sony a7sII mirrorless camera and get a nice lens for that, because when it comes to videos this thing is a beast! You get 4k videos and if you want some slo-mo shots it shoot 120fps at 1080p which is quite a step-up from my current Canon’s 50fps at 720p..For the lens I’d probably go for some Samyang video lenses (35mm, 85mm) or a Sony FE 24-70mm f/2.8. I’m not sure about that yet, but hopefully I’ll start thinking seriously about that soon!
And for the third piece of gear, and this one’s more of a empty wish for this year, it’s the DJI Mavic pro drone which seems reeeeeealy awesome! Oh right and my laptop might explode any day now so I guess I should’ve put a computer on the list too.. This shit is getting kinda expensive…

Bungee Jumping:
– There’s really not much to explain here, I’m just really curious about how it feels to throw myself of a bridge. I’m not really afraid of heights but the thought of falling does scare me quite a bit, nevertheless I love new experiences and I think that’s definitely one for the books!

Wakeboarding Camp:
– Wakeboarding has been an occasional summer activity for the past 2 years now, but I’d love to get into it a bit more! A couple of friends I usually ride with went to the camp on island Pag and they said it was amazing, so I got hyped and I want to go with them this year!

Barcelona (skate) trip:
– Skateboarding has always been a huge part of my life, but in the last few months I hardly even stepped on my board and I feel like something’s missing. In 2017 I’m definitely going to take more time to skate again and try to go on some skate trips. When it comes to skate trips Barcelona is the Mecca for us. It’s like the whole city has been built for skateboarding and it’s THE skate trip destination for riders all over the world. I haven’t been there yet and that’s what the goal is for this year, even if it’s just for a couple of days. I can clearly imagine the perfect weather and throwing a board under my feet and just skating around the city!

That’s it, that’s the bucket list I’m starting out with and I’m hyped about it! The reason I chose these things is because every experience leaves us richer and to me every return from a trip or an awesome activity fills me with motivation to work even harder and enjoy life to the absolute fullest. It’s about grabbing life by the horns and enjoying every second of the ride! Sine Metu!

Živjo!

Leto 2016 se je ravno končalo in zame je bilo odlično! Spoznal sem kaj zares hočem početi in začel delati na tem, spremenil sem svoj pogled, si postavljal izzive in opazil, da zares uživam življenje. Prav tako sem začel z tem blogom, da lahko delim svoj lifestyle in svoje vrednote, Sine metu način življenja z vami! Ker se je leto 2017 šele začelo pa si postavljam nekaj ciljev. Brez skrbi to ni nobeno »novo leto-nov jaz« sranje ampak seznam stvari, ki jih hočem doživeti ali doseči v tem letu. To pa vam pravim zato ker bodo vse te dogodivščine nakoncu pristale prav tu na blogu. Seznam pa še zdaleč ni končan, vrjetno bom redno dodajal stvari, od manjših opravil do večjih ciljev, dobro je imeti vse zapisano in prilimano na zid, da se ohranjaš motiviranega.

Opozorilo: Obupno narisane ilustracije spodaj!

Surfanje:
– O surfanju sem sanjal že od otroštva, zadnje čase pa ta želja postaja čedalje močnejša. Letos je končno čas, da se spravim iz riti in uresničim to željo. Načrt je iti na surf kamp v Španijo in v hajpu sem že ko razmišljam o temu! To je definitivno eden večjih ciljev v letu 2017! Čas je za počitnice v pravi Sine Metu način!
Nova oprema:
– Večino fotografiram in snemam z svojim Canonom 70D z Sigma 17-50mm f/2.8 objektivom in čeprav to ni slab začetni setup, moram reči, da že hrepenim po višji kvaliteti in več različnih možnosti. Prva stvar na seznamu je DJI Ronin M gimbal stabilizator za smoooooth posnetke brez tresenja. Ponavadi posnamem vse svoje videe iz roke, kar me malce omejuje z stabilizatorjem pa bi imel veliko več manevrskega prostora za kreativne posnetke.
Druga stvar, ki si jo želim je preskok na Sony a7sII brezzrcalni fotoaparat in pa kvaliteten objektiv za zraven, saj je za videe ta kamera reeees huda. Snema v 4k resoluciji, za počasne posnetke pa poskrbi z 120 posnetki na sekundo pri 1080p resoluciji, kar je precejšen upgrade proti trenutnim 50 posnetkom na sekundo pri 720p resoluciji mojega canona. Pri objektivih bi se vrjetno odločil za kakšne Samyangove video lense (35mm, 85mm) ali pa Sony FE 24-70 f/2.8. O tem še nisem prepričan, a upam, da bom kmalu lahko začel resno razmišljati o tem.
Za tretji kos opreme, ki je za letos bolj prazna želja, pa je DJI Mavic Pro drone, ker je reeeees kul! Aha pa še moj laptop lahko eksplodira kadarkoli v prihodnosti, vrjetno bi moral na seznam dodati tudi nov računalnik… To postaja že malce drago…

Bungee skok:
– Tu ni ravno veliko za povedati, res me zanima kakšen je občutek, ko se vržeš z mosta. Višine se ravno ne bojim, a misel na padanje me malce straši. Kakorkoli, rad imam nove izkušnje in to je definitivno ena za na seznam!
Wakeboarding camp:
– Wakeboardanje je občasna poletna aktivnost zadnje 2 leti, a želim pristopiti k tem malce bolj intenzivno. Nekaj prijateljev, s katerimi ponavadi wakeamo, je to sezono obiskalo wake camp na Pagu in pravijo, da je neverjetna izkušnja zato je plan za letos, da se jim pridružim!
Barcelona (skate) trip:
– Skejtanje je bilo vedno velik del mojega življenja , zadnjih par mesec pa sem komaj kaj stopil na dilo in se počutim, kot da mi nekaj manjka. V letu 2017 si bom definitivno vzel več časa za skejtanje in šel na par skate tripov. Ko pride do skate tripov je Barcelona naša Meka. Mesto je kot, da je bilo zgrajeno za skejtanje in je THE destinacija za skejterje z celega sveta. Sam je nažalost še nisem obiskal, zato je to cilj za letos, pa tudi če samo za par dni. Jasno si predstavljam popolno vreme, skejt pod nogami in celo pred mano za raziskovanje.
To je to, to je seznam, ki je moje izhodišče! Razlog za mojo izbiro teh stvari je ker nas vsaka izkušnja naredi bogatejše in zame je vsaka vrnitev z potovanja ali zabavne aktivnosti, velika motivacija za delo in gorivo za uživanje življenja do daske. Gre za to, da zagrabiš življenje za rogove in uživaš v vsaki sekundi izkušnje! Sine Metu!
