So this thing called Jet-Lag always seems to strike me when I least want it too. Today the conditions were too rough with a ridiculous head wind so they had to cancel the day of riding and push everything until tomorrow. This means that DC will be riding at 6 am and since I am a supportive girlfriend I’ll be there to cheer him on. My heat is up at 8.20 so this means we have to wake up at 5 am!! And of course I can’t sleep.
I don’t really feel too nervous, I think it’s because I have so many talented riders in my heat so that all I can do is to try and ride my best and see what happens. Hopefully it will be enough to get me into the semi finals on Saturday but enough talk about that. Being awake like this has made me jump on the internet and stalk around and that made me find this article about my good friend and inspiration source Malin Rapp. She has the best attitude to wakeboarding and life and I’ve always looked up to her a lot. I am so sorry to hear that she now, due to injuries, has been forced to leave her board behind after a gnarly crash in Cable Worlds last year. Everyone should keep their eyes on this girl though since I am sure that whatever she does in the future will be something amazing and I can’t wait to see where here motivation brings her. Lot’s of love to you Malin, keep on rocking and being a role model for so many girls out there!

The first day of Euros has been so good! We all practiced in the very windy conditions and since the organizers still hasn’t brought out the 2013 X-Star which we will wakeboard behind tomorrow but just ran the practice behind an X2 I decided to skate for my testrun. It was so much fun and after attending the captains meeting and getting all the info about the course and the rules team sweden went for dinner.
My abs are almost sore from all the laughing we’ve done today. This year the team is full of such great people and I’m really looking forwards to this week. Tomorrow myself and Tom will ride our qualification rounds and the skaters wont ride until Saturday. Tom is up first at 11 am and Open Women will be around 3.30 pm. Wish me luck! (:
