THANK YOU!

Crazy week!! Thank you everyone who took a stand with me against the sexism in wakeboarding! Especially thanks to Wake Sista and Still stoked! Can’t wait to see how things plan out and I’m overwhelmed by the love and respect both male and female riders have shown this week! It’s all about the love! Like […]

THE REALITY OF A FEMALE WAKEBOARDER

When I was fourteen years old my dad bought me my first Wakeboarding Magazine. I had just started wakeboarding and I read that thing cover to cover, completely amazed by the crisp photographs of these athletes going bigger than I though was possible. Those athletes quickly became my heroes and I could not wait to […]

KNEE BRACE OR NOT?

So I’ve been getting some questions about why I’m not wearing a knee brace after my ACL reconstruction. This is because, together with my PT and my surgeon, I’ve decided to try and get back on the board without needing one. This means my recovery time will be slightly longer than but in the end I want […]

THAILAND

This life is where I’m the happiest! I feel like I’ve been in a dream for the past 7 months with my university life and being back in Stockholm full time. Now being back in the “Wakeboarding World” I think I’m seeing it with a whole new perspective. I am so grateful to be back […]

THAILAND – BACK WAKEBOARDING!

These one’s are extra special as they are designed based on the cool cat Ben Leclair, a great wakeboarder who injured his spinal chord a few weeks back.  All […]

IDROTTSGALAN

Had a magical night meeting tons of inspiring people, getting dressed up to the teeth and eating desserts at the Swedish Sports Gala. I was one of the athletes getting awarded a scholarship for pursuing dual careers. The Swedish sports confederation supports athletes combining successful sport careers with studies and as I’ve now passed my […]

NEW YEARS RESOLU… GUIDELINES

I never make New Years Resolutions because I don’t believe in setting “do’s” and “don’ts” for myself. However I do like the concept of starting fresh and I try to invite change into my life. Today I started thinking about what I want to change in 2017 and here are some of my new year […]

2016

The minutes before the new year 2016 I found myself standing on top of a chair next to ten other people on top of chairs. We were holding 12 grapes each in our hands because my spanish fiend Esther had told us in her charming accent that “on New Year’s Eve you stand on top […]

MY 3D FUNCTION TRAINING

The past 3 months I’ve been working on strengthening not just my knee but the rest of my body as well. After getting in touch with Hans Hellberg (@hansofhell) I started training 3D Function (or proceedos) and here are my thoughts of it: Ever since I started the wakeboarding highschool (Riksidrottsgymnasiet i Fagersta) I’ve been […]
