The latest episode in my podcast series is online!
Here is what MacG Productions says about it:
In this episode Markus where on Maui as he attended at the annual Simmer Style photoshoot. We manage to shoot two sessions when he was practicing after the shoot and this is what we came up with.
Markus: To be a part of the Simmer Style photoshoot was an amazing experience. I had a lot of fun and the new gear is sick! Unfortunately we only got to film two avarage Hookipa sessions for this episode but I'm still happy with how it came out in the end. Can't wait till next Maui trip and Simmer Style photoshoot!"
Now I'm on Maui. Today is the start of the Simmer Style photoshoot, exiting....
...So exiting i thought I should drop the latest episode in my video podcast. MacG Productions followed me in Sweden as I was recovering from a small injury I got in South Africa. I worked really hard and trained a lot in the gym together with a physio. I also got a few day on the water but mainly like 5,6 and small waves. But it was perect to feel out my knee and if the rehab had worked. Other than that I played some icehockey and enjoyed a ski trip.
Well, hopefully I will have some action shoots from Maui for you online soon!
I have been home in Sweden for about a week now. I really liked South Africa and the sailing there, even though we didn't score the best season. I only sailed on my 4,2 four times during January, which is a bit unusual from what I understand. Anyway, I feel that I have improved my port tack sailing during this trip. I'm really happy about this am super motivated to go and sail more port tack and push harder!
Besides the sailing I really enjoyed Cape Town. The contrast between the beach vs big city life was super cool. I don't think there is many places in the world you get both of these worlds that close to each other. There is also a lot of awesome nature and you never get bored becuase there is always something to do if there is no wind. I will definitely go back!
Here comes the second episode in my podcast series. Even though the camera wasn't on the beach during the best sessions I'm still happy with what we got on camera. I had a lot of fun doing this one and l hope you like it!
The winter here in Sweden has been super cold and long this year, it feels like it never ends... But I have had a few sessions with pretty good but cold conditions. We were shooting with MacG Productions on two of them. During the first session we had -3 degrees, a lot of snow and small waves. But it was such a great experience to be out sailing in those extreme conditions!
During the second session it was a bit better waves and I manage to nail som jumps and rides. But it was super cold when you fell into the water, which was 0 degrees..
Anyway, here is an edit of the shoots I manage to get thanks to Gustav and Ola Häggström who was on the beach filming!
The winter has really settled here in Sweden. Below zero degrees everyday and no wind at all. A couple of days ago I was thinking back on the summer we had here in the north. It was pretty windy but we didn't get much of those super windy days, but a lot of sailing with 5,0 and small waves. And that is pretty much what it is all about during the swedish summers, and I like to be out in those conditions with my friends just as much as sailing a big day at Hookipa...
That is what I'm trying to show in this edit and I hope you like it!
Now I am back from Denmark. Me an Emma had an awesome week and I will post some pictures in another post.
MacG Productions have done a video from our roadtrip to Dalen. There are also some footage from our awesome home spot, Läjet, in the vid. Hope you enjoy it and get ready for our next video that will come up soon.....
Yo! Idag körde jag "the office" igen. Det är ett riktigt kul spot som påminner lite om hemma. Här är ett klipp när jag gör en bakåt. Det är riktigt kul att slänga på GoPro:n ibland. Köpte anti-fog-tussar som jag har satt in och de funkar skitbra, immar ingenting. Här är ett klipp på en bakåt och några bilder.
Today I went to sail my favourite jumping spot again. Bought anti-fog inserts to my GoPro before the session, and the worked really good! Here is a clip when I do a backloop and some pictures, enjoy!
