Tine was a very curious child, excited about discovering new places. He used to dream of doing something no one has ever done before. He tried many sports but when he stepped on a windsurf board for the first time, on a rocky beach just a couple of hundred meters away from home, the beginning of his life’s path emerged. He never could have imagined that this sport would transform his life. After a couple of months of training he understood that he has finally found what he was looking for. Through windsurfing he envisioned who he wanted to become. The freedom he felt in nature combined with water and waves became his passion. Although everyone was telling him to choose a safer way after he graduated from the Faculty of Economics he decided to follow his dream. He spent all his money and went training to Cape Town. In the first year of competing professionally he ended up 9th in Europe and 4th in the consecutive year. Despite the success in windsurfing competitions he felt that his biggest mission was to travel the world and get to know other cultures and people. By following his passion he realized one of his dreams – he visited all continents before the age of 30. The choice to sail around Cape Horn with two other friends made them the first windsurfers in the world who have done that. Following his own voice and guidance no matter the difficulties he encountered made him what he considers a Different person. As his career as a professional windsurfer was coming to an end he started to dream a new dream – to create an environment that would encourage and help people to follow their unique passions because in his opinion it’s the only way to be truly alive and fulfilled. He believes that you can achieve more with strong will and dedication to your passion – Cape Horn thought him that and Different Eyewear is the product and reflection of that valuable lesson.
