To truly understand how much this place rocks, I thought I’d take you through a day in my life here:
9am Wake Up by the sun shining through our blinds but stay in bed for another half hour, just because I can
10am Breakfast (Usually yogi tea, fruit and yohurt) while checking my emails and social media from all my friends down under.
11am Yoga Sesh and physio-exercises for my ankle
11.10am trying to get Choco of my yoga mat since he always thinks I’m playing dog in my downward-dog
12.30pm Lunch (usually tuna salad or whatever yummy the amazing kitchen staff have as “today’s special”)
1.30pm Siesta or chillin in the sun with a book working on my tanlines
3pm time to ride with Andres and DC. Myself and Andres prefer our Nautique 210 but DC likes the 220 so usually we change midway through. Such a luxury to have to opportunity to choose boats.
5pm more emails and working on some of the projects I’m up too (: Or we head into town for ice cream at our favorite place. Sometimes I even go for a quick afternoon run or watch some videos at Learn Wake
6.30pm Time for another ride with the boys, usually this is the set where we all try and step it up a bit since we’ve had a first set to get us really motivated. For me these days it’s more about trying NOT to get too amped up and brace myself to let my ankle come back slowly. Super fun sets in other words with just playing around with basics.
8pm Showers and head into town for dinner with the rest of the crew
10pm most of the guys head out for a few drinks but lately I’ve been in a chill mood so I usually go home to put a movie on and fall asleep early. Then repeat…

Today it was time for me to celebrate 22 years of existing on this earth. I had such a great day filled with wakeboarding,flat water, sunshine and yoga. For dinner we went into Cordoba for some sushi, shopping and frozen yoghurt. So happy right now and thanks for all your birthday wishes! You are the best! ♥
Tune of the day:
Comes, yet again from the amazing Malin Rapp. Ever since I first saw this image it keeps popping back into my head. When I’m at competitions, out trying new tricks or just in social situations like the latest now in Lilla Sportspegeln. Things can be so scary that sometimes we even chose not to do it but I think it’s like what my parents taught me when they sent me away to summer camp alone as a kid. If you are brave enough, that’s when you’ll find the magic and most of the time you will!
So happy to be back at the best place on earth! Ever since I first rode at Xtreme it’s been where I want to spend my time. It only gets better that I now have DC, Lucas and Andres to ride with over here. Today I took my first set since World Cup and since my physio back home has told me to take it really easy, that’s just what I did. The whole set I had a big smile on my face and I’m so excited to be back on the water!

When I was a kid and watched this TV-show I would always dream about being in it myself. Tonight that’s where I will be, words can’t describe how excited I am!
Wish me Luck!
Snow, minus 5, bluebird and crazy. 4 words to describe this last weekend I spent with Betsafe up in Åre to watch Jon Olsson Invitaional and Betsafe Alpine Challenge. I’m so impressed with these skiers and what they can do, how hard they slam and what great people they are.
I got to take my snowboard out for a ride with some friends I haven’t seen in ages and let’s just say my abs are sore today from laughing so hard and so much. Now I’m heading to see my physio to find out how much damage my ankle has taken from being in the slopes (and dancing on the tables) ;).
