    Soča Katarakt is an extreme kayaking classic. With swift development of kayaking in the recent years, this section doesn't present a demanding run for a contemporary high-end kayaker, but it is still notorious and feared for its numerous dangerous siphons. The Katarakt video was shot in November 2012, right after some of the biggest floods this valley has had in the last century. This section has been known to change often after the floods or avalanches and so it has changed in November. Those who know the section might notice some new lines and even rapids in this video, while the changes are more evident in the low water. There are numerous Soča tributaries and near-by rivers in the area, but most are only runnable by kayak after heavy rain. Tolminka and Učja are the most beautiful and ...

With swift development of kayaking in the recent years, this section doesn't present a demanding run for a contemporary high-end kayaker, but it is still notorious and feared for its numerous dangerous siphons. The Katarakt video was shot in November 2012, right after some of the biggest floods this valley has had in the last century.

Those who know the section might notice some new lines and even rapids in this video, while the changes are more evident in the low water. There are numerous Soča tributaries and near-by rivers in the area, but most are only runnable by kayak after heavy rain. Tolminka and Učja are the most beautiful and also most demanding ones. They are long, dangerous and especially Tolminka is in some parts only less than a meter wide. Both of these descents were shot in 2011, probably at a record-high water level. I ran out of batteries at about a half of Tolminka descent, so the narrowest and most breath-taking part, the Tolminka Gorge, isn't in the video. There is, however, something what could be called a bonus shot. At one point we ran into a complete tree blockade of one of its gorges, which demonstrates how dangerous descents after heavy rain can be. I only hardly stopped before running into it (and probably into my death), thanks to the last second warning of my mates. We improvised to get over the obstacle, which probably wasn't the smartest idea, as we didn't know what waited for us behind it, knowing that we had to go one by one, with some of us having to swim through the gorge. Luckily, we all made it through. All the music has been made by Slovenian artists listed below and I don't hold any rights to it. If you like the music, check the artists' other work. Thanks to all the buddies for some of the best times I have ever had! Thanks to all the sponsors for keeping me well equipped and making it overall possible!

First Lady's childhood town in Slovenia goes wild for its most famous daughter with three-day celebration and local restaurant offering the 'Melania menu' The inauguration of Donald Trump is a big deal for a small town in Slovenia, where the future U.S. first lady traces her roots. Starting Friday, the river-front town of Sevnica plans three days of events to mark the inauguration and welcome all guests wishing to see where Melania Trump grew up. Sevnica (pronounced say-OON-itza) sits on the northern bank of the Sava River in Central Slovenia, an Alpine nation about the size of New Jersey that borders Italy, Austria, Croatia, and Hungary. Born Melanija Knavs in nearby Novo Mesto, Mrs. Trump was raised in Sevnica by her father, a car salesman, and her mother, a pattern maker at a textile factory, while Slovenia was part of the Communist-ruled former Yugoslavia. Mrs. Trump left Sevnica in her late teens to pursue a modeling career. She will be the country's second foreign-born first lady, after John Quincy Adam's wife Louisa, who was born in England. Sevnica residents have invited the presidential couple to visit, and are marking the inauguration with a slew of festivities. Mayor Srecko Ocvirk says Sevnica has organized free guided tours, a display of locally produced goods and brands in the 12th century castle above the old town, and a festival of grape vine pruning. Until recently, the small town of 5,000 on the banks of the Sava River was better known for its lingerie and furniture factories, as well as a 900-year-old castle. Few in Sevnica even remembered a young girl called Melanija Knavs, who was born in 1970. Melania left in her late teens to embark on an international modelling career, which would eventually lead her to New York where she became Trump's third wife in 2005. A year later, she took US citizenship and has only rarely returned to Slovenia, where her parents still own a house in Sevnica but mostly live also in the US, according to local media. But this has not stopped savvy local entrepreneurs from tapping into what they call 'Melaniamania'. At Julija bakery on Sevnica's main street, you can have your very own slice of 'Melania' for just three euros. The creamy white chocolate cake is stuffed with nuts and has a golden topping. The delicacy has been a hit with locals and foreigners, according to bakery employee Darja Jelenc. 'It's a national pride... We've been selling many of these cakes over the last few weeks. People come all the way from Ljubljana to buy them,' she said. Jelenc already dreams of even bigger success after Trump's inauguration. 'The local tourist board has announced a whole bus of foreign journalists will come then,' she said with a grin. On one of the forest-covered hills surrounding Sevnica, a rustic restaurant offers a 'Melania' menu featuring locally-caught trout as its main course. Meanwhile, a speciality crepe shop sells 'Melania' pancakes with wild blueberries, vanilla cream and, of course, gold dust. Travel agency Muranica plans to launch a 'Melania tour' in March that will include guided visits around landmark spots in Sevnica, Ljubljana and Milan, Italy, where she started her modelling career. Even local footwear manufacturer Kopitarna Sevnica has joined the craze and launched a limited edition of luxurious felt slippers called 'White House'. 'We sent the future First Lady a pair hoping they will keep her feet warm in the coming winter months,' spokeswoman Mateja Reseta said. The Trumps, however, have not been all that charmed by the many 'Melania' gimmicks popping up. The couple recently hired a Slovenian lawyer to stop the use of their name and image for commercial purposes without their consent. Heeding the warning, Sevnica council promptly took down an advertising billboard with Melania's image while a honey producer had to remove jars claiming to be from 'Melania's home garden'. Others changed the name of their products, including pizzeria Rondo whose 'Trump' burger became the more generic 'Presidential' burger. The 'Melania' mascarpone strawberry mousse, however, stays on the menu. Still, not everyone buys into the hype. For Slovenian columnist Dejan Steinbuch, it is merely a marketing ploy. Most ordinary Slovenians don't care about Melania because she has long not been present, nor promoted her native land overseas, he says. 'They feel she went to the US because she was fed up with Slovenia. Melania's attitude towards her homeland is determined by her departure,' he wrote in a recent editorial for Croatian Vecernji List daily's website.
