Sweden had some ok wind during the midsummer weekend. A bit too north to produce really good conditions but it still was fun to sail. I have a few shots from that but will upload them in another post.
I have been working a bit on the interior design in my new van. I'm happy how it came out. I can fit all my sails, boards, mast etc and can sleep in there without any problems. Now I'm ready to go for forcast based trips, comps and other stuff.
Big thanks to Tolle for helping me out!

Last weekend I went to a swedish island called Öland with surfers.se for a demo. We had wind everyday and there was a lot of people stopping by testing some gear.
I manage to sail a lot my self and tested Simmer Styles freeride sail 2XC 7,8 and board Freemove 110ltr. I loved the combo and for being a wave sailor that hasn't really sailed freeride before I had a lot of fun. Kind of got hooked to go out with this big gear when it's light wind. There was a couple of marks out and I practiced gybes around them, super fun!
Hopefully the wind can kick in for real now so I can practice some waves!
A couple of days ago there was a sick forcast for the south-east coast of Sweden. Strong north-east winds would hopefully set a spot called Gislövshammar on fire.. Me and my friend Gustav packed the van the night before and were on the road 6am the next day. 4 hours later we arrived and it looked good. I sailed the whole day and tested a new Simmer style board prototype. Can say that it's really good I really liked the board! Otherwise the conditions was good and a lot of guys were charging. My team mate Klaas Voget drove all the way from Germany to sail, and it was super fun to see him in Sweden!
It took some time to get in to it after more then a month without sailing and sailing this spot for the second time only. But I sailed better during the day and had a lot of fun!
This weekend I was on a swedish island called Öland for a surfers.se and Simmer style demo. I had a good time but more of that in the next post!
Here is a screenshot from a film session in Gislövshammar
