BIG NEWS: SIMMER STYLE!
I have some big news coming for ya!
I've got a lot of questions lately, so it's about time I announce this:
I've signed a sponsorship with Simmer Style!
I am super happy to become an international teamrider for Simmer, I think the brand and the people behind it are great, and to be a part of their international team is a dream come true!
When it comes to equipment I will be using the Blacktip sails and Quantum boards. I've been trying them out and it's a combo which really suits my windsurfing style.
I'm extremely excited about this, I'm sure working with Simmer will help me to reach my goals and I'm very proud to be representing them! Also a big thanks to my local surfshop Surfers.se for their support!
Last day in Sylt
Today is the last day on the PWA World Cup here in Sylt. We have been pretty unlucky with wind and waves but manage to do both slalom and freestyle. But for us wave sailors it's been ten days of waiting. Either way I have had a fun time here and I'd like to thank my family, sponsors for supporting what I do. and also thank the organizers and the PWA for a great event! Hopefully we'll have better luck with the conditions next year!
Now, it's back to Sweden to work and hopefully get some more sailing and comps done before the winter kicks in...
Keep you posted,
PWA Sylt day 3,4 & 5
PWA Sylt day 2
PWA Sylt day 1
So Klitmoller is over and today it was time to head for Sylt. It's been a pretty intense day so far, I was supposed to start driving from my home in Varberg to Sylt at 5am, but I woke my self up at 5,30 realizing I hadn't heard the alarm... So I jumped into my clothes, said goodbye to Emma and hit the road immediately. I got stuck in traffic in Copenhagen and after that I had to speed really fast and not stop once to make it to the registration! I made it just in time, and at the same time I sorted a place to stay - thanks Albert, Antoine, Jules and Justin for letting me stay at your place!
17th in Klitmøller and soon off to Sylt
Just got back from a nice week in Klitmøller. After a long week of waiting we finally had some wind on the final day to run the single elimination. Since I'd qualified through the trials I was up against Thomas Traversa. I didn't sail my best heat, actually I'm pretty disappointed of my performance. It's no problems that I'd got kicked out by Thomas but I wanted to at least be happy with my sailing.. Well, I'm still happy to have made it to the main event and grabbing 17th place. It even got in to the local newspaper!
Now I'm off to Sylt for the next PWA World Cup. Will be super fun to go there for my very first time and see what it's all about! Will do my very best and hopefully make it in to the main event again!
Will keep you posted!
Pwa world cup Cold Hawaii day 2 and 3
Two days ago we had some nice wind and waves here in Klitmøller! We started the day with skippers meeting at 6.30 in the morning. The wind was too light to start the comp. we were on hold until around 3 pm and then the trial were on. I was in the second heat and got to try out the conditions before my heat started. The wind was pretty offshore witch meant that it was super light wind on the inside. Because of the light wind I was really careful with my wave choice. I got a couple of good waves and manage to go through. I am super stoked about that and now I am up against Thomas Traversa. It will be super hard but I'll do my absolute best to go through!
Right now it looks like Saturday is the only day with wind so I hope the forcast is right!
Keep you posed,
PWA cold hawaii World Cup day 1
Yesterday was a long day of waiting. The wind filled in sometimes but went away just as fast. I'm in the second trial heat against Albert Pijoan, Stefan Gobish and Fabian Weber. It is a tough heat but I will do my absolute best and hopefully go through! During the day I'd got interviewed by Ben and Mikael on the PWA live stream. It was super fun! Today we had the skippers meeting at 6.30 am and are at the moment on hold waiting for the wind. Hopefully it will fill in and we can hit the water soon!
Keep you updated,
On my way to the PWA World Cup Cold Hawaii
Right now I am on the ferry over to Denmark. I am super pumped to do my absolute best and hopefully qualify to the main event through the trials.
As you all might know there was no wind in Pozo so that's make me want to sail hard even more!
I have been sailing pretty much at home even though it has been a really windless summer and am happy about my sailing atm. I have also been working out a lot in the gym so I feel in very good shape too.
It looks like it will be some wind early in the week so I'll keep you updated!

PWA World Cup Pozo 2013 sum up
Now I am back home in Sweden after three weeks on Gran Canaria and participating in the first PWA event of the year. As you probably know there was absolutely no wind during the first five days of the event. But on the last day there was enough wind to do an expression session. I sailed pretty good during my heat but had a hard time finding nice ramps. After a couple of nice forwards and backies I was searching for a suitable ramp for trying the double forward. I went for two but crashed..
I didn't advance to the final but am pleased with how I sailed.
Even thought there wasn't that much wind during the event I had a great time. It was super fun to meet some friends I haven't seen for a while and to meet some new nice people!
I really want to thank all my sponsors for their help and support making all of this happen, and also the organizers, PWA and all the sailors that made this a great event!
Next up is Tenerife in a bit more then two weeks. I can't wait to go there and sail my very best in the trails which I hopefully get a chance to do!
Keep you posted,

PWA Pozo day 5
Yesterday we were super close to to start the comp. At 5 pm the wind kicked in so I went out for a session and had good power in my 4,5 Firelight. At 5.15 they announced that the first trail heat would start within 15 minutes. That meant that I had to get ready. I went out, did a few runs, waiting for the heat to start. But then the red and white flag came up meaning that the heat was cancelled due to too small waves. I was bummed because I was so focused to sail the heat and then getting back to waiting felt shit! Then after some waiting the waves totally disappeared so nothing more happened.
Well well, today is the last day and the skippers meeting is at 9 am with first possible start at 9.30. Hopefully they will be able to run the comp! I will probably be in the first heat of the day, so make sure you tune in on the livestream!
