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 […]

SUNDAY CHILLS

Photo: Nicola Butler Today us Swedes celebrate “2a advent” (which basically is an excuse to eat a ton of christmas treats called “lussebullar”). After breakfast in bed and an episode of the Gilmore Girls, I started my day by heading to the gym for an hour bike intervals. I am not the biggest fan of […]

2017 SLINGSHOT VALLEY

Most of you have probably not missed out on the news of Slingshot’s new women’s cable board!!! The Valley is based off the shape of the popular cable board the terrain and if you like something that presses out to the max on rails, this is the board for you! Honestly I can’t decide which […]

REHAB PROGRESS

Hey everyone. It’s been a while since I last blogged and I think it’s because I’ve been staying busy with University and my rehab. The other day I wrote my first ever exam at Stockholm Business School and the day before that I was cleared to do skipping ropes by my PT Britta! My life […]

GET MACKIE BACK ON A BOARD

     In May 2016 Mackie Rosen took a life changing fall in a wakeboard competition, dislocating his knee, tearing all ligaments and causing severe artery damage. The limited supply of blow flow to his foot caused a life threatening situation and Mackie had to have his left leg amputated. There are no words to explain Mackies […]

SURF EXPO

  For one week I flew back into Orlando to meet up with all my friends who travel to Florida for the Surf Expo. It’s always fun to see the new product and all the people I’ve barely seen all season so without hesitation I decided to skip one week of university (I just started […]

Wake the Line

Almost a decade ago I came across the images from the first Wake the Line event. It almost made me choke my coffee as I saw the huge arena with rails and kickers some creative soul had put  in the local swimming pools! I remember being amazed and watching the event for a lot of […]

REHAB

These past few weeks I have been focusing 100% on my rehab. Normally I wake up at 6am to head to the gym and then I go back at 5pm for a bike session or water therapy. Every day is different, some days I feel really good and my rehab sessions are great and the next […]
