PWA Sylt day 2

At the moment it's really light wind here in Sylt and the forcast does'nt look to good for the rest of the week. Yesterday I took time to rig my gear and put the event stickers on the sails without any stress at all so I'm ready if the wind kicks in. Other then that it's just hours of chillng in the riders tent, a bit of running to keep my body fresh and yeah, just waiting basically. In the evening I went to the premier of Bellow the Surface movie. I did really enjoy it and will definately see it again!
Keep you posted,

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!
After that it was time for the opening ceremony. It was pretty cool getting called up to the stage alone (since I'm the only Swedish compeditor) in front of at least 500 spectators. Definitely something I'll remember.
The forecast looks windy but from south-east. Not the ideal direction to get waves but hopefully it will change and the wave fleet will be able to hit the water, I'll keep you posted!
So, finally it's time to calm down after this crazy day... I'm stoked to be here and can't wait for some conditions to kick in!

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

Good morning!

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!
