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.
In the en off September me, Adam , Andreas and three other broes left the fall in Sweden for some warmer weather and better waves down in Portugal.
After some forgotten passports we were finally on the direct flight from Gothenburg to Lisaboa. We arrived late afternoon and finally got our boards and picked up our car.
We had rented a apartment in Ericera with a awesome view of the town, and we could see about three or fore different surf spots from the balcony.
The first couple of days we surfed at the beachbreak Foz Do Lizandro ten minutes south from Ericera. It was a decent beach break, a lot of people out in the water. Thes best thing about this break was probably the view from the restaurant where we had after surf food and beer!
After trying out some of the waves down in Ericera we wanted to try out some spots around the Peniche area. Most of the places we looked at didn´t work at all, but we finally found a nice little wave.
So we surfed this spot a couple of days both sunrise, day and sunset. And it worked good!
Epic view from the roof of the building!
That´s it for now.
Since Lasse and I got back from GC I havn´t been surfing at all, only windsursing. So when my friend Jonas called me and said that the forecast looked good this Sunday I had to meet up with him since he just got back after a six months long trip to Sri Lanka and Indo. The swell directions wasn´t perfect for the spot witch i never surfed before but it was good enough to have some party waves with good friends! I see great potential in this spot though. I think we can get some really good once there if we time the perfect swell.
After the surf we went to surfers paradise to look at some new gear. Kind of want to get a 7.0 semi longboard type of board ( Jonas had one and it looked gooooood). Ended up picking up a hat and a new wetsuit for the upcoming kid.
If you haven’t heard about the Resano family from Playa Popoyo Nicaragua its about time you look up some of there movies. The family live at Playa Popoyo in Nicaragua. The dad Manuel Resano is a hella good surfer, but the cool thing with the family is hes three daughters. The two older once are surfing bigger waves then I do and I am sure they all going pro one day.
I had the pleasure to surf with the dad and two of his daughters at the main break at Popoyo some years ago. Manuel pushed hes daughters into the biggest sets and it was epic to see. Later that week Erica and I was lucky enough to share a table with them at the loca pizza place. They are some cool young girls!

Me and Lars just got back home from another trip to Gran Canaria. We spent a week there and where lucky to have waves every day. This is some of the photos from the trip. To be able to surf all over the island we got a rental car for the week. We spent some time in the west, east and north surfing. Overall it was a really good trip !!
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.
During the Christmas holiday the ice set at Vassbotten in Vänersborg. Thanks to strong wind a couple of degrees warmer weather we got some open water. During the afternoon on January second the wind was good enough for Lars and I to jump in the water to get the first surf of 2015. The water temperature was about one degree Celsius and the air was about the same. Even though we put on the winter suits it was pretty could and hard to hold on to the sail when the wind picked up. Lars seems to be chilling in the water on one of the photos, but I can tell you that my toes was pretty cold and my index fingers was frozen hard.
The surf wasn’t perfect but it felt good to be in the water again after a kind of slow fall. Thanks IH for taking the photos!
