"Veso Ovcharov"

I guess that you get the attraction from the early days for doing non main stream stuff as it happens with me since childhood. This led to snow sports and lately into air sport. Definitely the air sports catch me stronger than all, but still my biggest dream stays Big Wave Surfing.


What are you looking for to accomplish?

World Records in Acrobatics and Cross Country

High end film projects delivering the closest possible experience to the viewers

What would be your greatest achievement?

To fly the earth entirely and perhaps to reach at list 60 years old, with new list of dreams of course related to sports again.

What kind of difficulties does your sport’s performance involve?

Constant risk management in 3D environment related with speed, gravity, personal skills and weather conditions.  

What makes you feel satisfied when performing your sport?

The beauty of the nature around and the feeling of being free, able to choose your path to go further, or just up and down.

Where do you practice your techniques when being alone?

At any time, when I have the safety margin.  

What do you do during your training which is key to your success?

"Veso Ovcharov"

I guess to keep the same joy stage, which makes you start, as soon as you involve other factors, it is becoming more like a regular job – hard and boring. There is no real formula rather than true passion.

What are you most nervous about when competing?

It happens to me only if I lack training. 

Who would you say is your biggest fan and why?

My father I guess, because, what I’m doing is completely different from his career. He admires my success – as it was without much of his support.

What is the best piece of advice you have been ever given?

To fill the bag with the experience, before spending the one with luck.

What are your future plans?

Mixing more BASE jumping with Acro paragliding, and wave surfing trips if I manage it till that stage :) 

What are your tips for those who begin now?

You must try whatever you can and do it with respect, in order to learn your true feelings about it. That will give you the real picture about the certain sport and your talent etc.
