Two waves under a minute

I looked trough some of my old videos from Gran Canaria. I found this clip that Lars recorded from the beach and I recorded from the water. Its not the best two waves, but when I looked at the time saw that I caught them during one minute. Not in the movie though since I am playing in slow motion. For a Swedish surfer catching two waves in one minute is quite rare. So when it happens it deserved
it´s own video 😉



A couple of summers ago me and my family went to Spain and France in the summer. I wrote a post about a driftwood (HERE) and how I didn´t want to bring it home to Sweden. When we went surfing in Norway past fall i found a driftwood once again.
Andreas, Lars and I were crusing around on the beach after the surf waiting on the sunset. Just before the sunset I found this magnificent peace of driftwood calling out my name. This time a couldn´t let the peace of driftwood just lay there alone on the beach. So i brought it back home.


For you guys who don´t speak Norwegian, it says; “beach people”.


New surfing exercises with TRX bands and balance ball

Once again I brought the camera to the gym to show some more of the exercises that I am doing at the moment. From now on I changed my training. Its only going to be balance, my own body weight and swimming.
The last month I have lost about 3 kg , and I am now at 81 kg. My goal a week ago was to be bellow 80, but after my weigh in that last week I realized that I could aim for at least 78. Why I am trying to lose weight is not because I think that I am fat ore something like that. It´s because I want to be as light as possible which will make it easier to catch waves.


Good weekend

Its been a good weekend so far. Lars and I did some cross-country skiin Friday afternoon. Later on Johan meet up at Lars house and we decided to have a sauna. When we were done there Johan showed us that he brought a bottle of Morgan. After a while we were out of ice but managed to fix that the Swedish way. The night ended with a 1 a clock air rifle contest human target style.

Next morning up at nine a clock and of for some more more cross-country skiing with Erica this time.
Now its time for conditioning training at the gym to finish of the weekend. Next week I am getting a clip card at the swimming facility next to my gym. Its going to be swimming and underwater training from now on until the trip. Hopefully its going to be some more posts from the gym next week. After watching chasing Mavericks yesterday I got even more motivated do get in better shape. Strongly recommend that movie.




Surfing exercise

It´s about two months until Erica and I leaving Sweden for three months of warm water surfing. To don´t waste any time there, I am trying to get in the best shape I possible can. Until the ice melts I spend about five days a week at the gym trying to do exercises similar surfing moves, or exercises that I hope will approve my surfing.

In the clip below I am showing some exercises that I have been doing the last couple of months. I have set a couple of goals. I want to lose about three kilograms before the trip. If I do so I am going to weigh under 80 kg which I think will be good for my surfing. I also want to build long muscles that will actually help my surfing instead of just gym muscles. Hopefully there will be some more videos under the new category Training.



Me and my brother Alex went up to the mountain yesterday. I brought the camera and the new 24-105 lens to try it out. It was snowy, windy and cold, so i kept my gloves on most of the time. I did managed to take some photos before we made the fire and the battery went out. We went to this place named GrinnsjÜn and planed to BBQ some hot dogs there. Since it has unlimited supply of dry wood we thought it would be a easy thing. It wasn´t. I took us about one hour to light it up, and I can a sure you it wasn´t a Costa Rica bonfire we made.
