During our team week at Lapoint last year we had a little surf competition, Sweden vs Norway vs Denmark. I wish I could say Sweden won but unfortunatley we didn't 😂

Check out this brand new video from the competition:

We went on the first skatepark session of the year today.. A few slides in I fell on my tailbone and it hurt so bad I could barley breathe.
Now hours later I can't either walk, sit or lie on my back.
I hope it will be a quick recovery!

Though I miss that bit of sunshine we got over the last few days in Sweden, I do miss the waves even more.
As in any places in the world, the summer is not the best time for a surfer, and so is not the wind. However, in Sweden we need loads of wind to create waves and therefor I am secretly smiling now when it's snowing again as it is giving me more hope for wind and waves :)

It's confusing I know.. surfers wants wind, and we don't.. I will try to explain it for you..

In Sweden we don't have a lot of ocean surrounding us so we don't get what's called "groundswell" which is waves that has been travelling from far away due to a distant storm, that's why we want strong local winds to create waves.
In for example Portugal there will be waves due to a distant storm, so local winds might just destroy the waves. HERE is a better explanation.

Less confusing? :)

We set our alarms on 04.15 am yesterday and we were ready to jump in the water at 05.30 am. I can assure you that 2°c water makes you wake up in the morning :). It is not very often Sweden has good surf conditions, so we were heading straight out to Torö in the afternoon aswell. It has been a while since I felt surfed out!! Slept like a knocked out pig lat night.
