This summer have been epic so far.. at least the wind. Last weekend we had some good north east winds! Instead of driving to a beach up north we stayed at Lars house and surfed the home break!
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 😉
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!
Once again it´s been some time since I last posted. Just want to post this short Vassbotten – Four season video. All the recordings are from the small inner lake of Vänern where I live. This is what we do at our free time. Hopefully there will be some more Wakesurf and Windsurf movies later this summer. The recordings shows Vassbotten in all different seasons, and this is some of the things you could do here
