Photographer's Note

When we visited former Yugoslavia - especially Croatia and Bosnia-Hercergovina - in 1984, two kinds of water sports were common for the young men of Mostar around Stari Most bridge.
1) Some would jump the 20 m down from the bridge into Neretva river. This requires fitness plus some courage. The habit still exists as jumpers' association, against a fee from the tourists, and I think they also liked some mark or franc in those days of the dinar.
2) Other would do stationary water-skiing in the swift current of Neretva. A self knitted board, together with a long rope fixed on the bank would be sufficient for a lot of fun. No motor boat required: the current itself provided sufficient buoyancy.
3) I hope he survived the Yugoslav wars, and if yes, he should be in his late fifties or early sixties now. Hvala!
