William and I had a great day out in the woods. After that I took care of my boat and got it all done for winter. I ended the day with a night paddle in the lake.
The last couple of weeks have been good. During the summer it can go weeks between the surf, but the last week been so good so we have been in the water three times three different days. The last week we surfed Vassbotten twice but last Saturday Lars and I went up to Sikhall and we scored big time. We both brought sails that was way to big for the wind but since we didn´t bring any other sails we had to suit up and go for it anyway. Good for us the wind was strong and consistence!
Next week hopefully bring us a solid n swell with winds strong enough to create some waves at Vänern again. Time to get some new and smaller sails so we ca hit the big lake 😉
Its almost two years ago Erica and I did our trip through Central America. When we were there the internet capacity didn´t allow med to upload all the movies I wanted, and when I got back I had a lot of material that I hadn´t used. So a couple of days ago I sat down and did a quick edit from Las flores in El Salvador.
This past week I started working at my new job. This means a more interesting job, but also more freedom as I wrote in the last post. Me and Lasse my surf buddy who is the guy I developing Hapfind with, worked on Monday and a couple of hours the next day before it was time for the first lunch break surf session. We went to a place called Oljehamnen just outside Vänersborg. We have surfed there a couple of times before and the wind direction was pretty good.
Later on this past week we the wind picked up again and we where able to long board at another spot in Lake Vänern. Really good week!!
Last night I looked at the recordings from earlier that day, and was very happy when I saw the result. The videos almost looked as good as it felt… witch isn´t normal if you ask me. The wind was perfect, the sun was going down behind Dalbobergen, the water was warm and the surf felt goooood.
Next week I am starting a new job were I can be even more flexible with the hours so I can jump in the water when it´s good surf and work when it isn´t.
This is one of the rides I got out there.
