YEeeeeeeeeees!!!! Odub shred today and new flight tomorrow (:
Rode with Abby, Cathy, Terry, John John, Becky and Cathy’s friend today, my last day here. I’m so sad to go home I can’t even describe it. Going to sleep now on the couch at AJ’s and Flav’s house, don’t want to leave…
Couch-surfing really takes some skill. There’s a lot of things to think about, for example when you should shower (which couch has the cleanest bathroom), when/what to eat (got to be cheap), how to get into the house without owning a key etc. There fore I want to share some tips that I’ve discovered.
First of all: Everything is always cleaner at a girl’s house so chose your showers wisely
Second: It’s pretty hard to find cheap/free food if your a vegetarian so we’ve started to survive on Cliff-bars which are crazy good organic powebars, hold any temperature and provide both protein and energy. They’re like one dollar each and you stay full for a LONG time (aaand they’re chocolate chip flavored). Perfect!
Third: Make sure you hide your girlie stuff like lotion, hairbrushes, soap etc. if you don’t want the rest of the dudes using it.
Forth: Look for fun stuff to play with in people’s garages. You can find great stuff like we found these awesome roller skates at the Jessamine house!
So yeah, find a couch near you and start surfing!
Just cause it looked cool… (:
Just woke up on this really comfortable couch. Time to go shreddd… (:
I moved out of the awesome house today ): Such a sad day but it has been awesome! I woke up at 8.30 and went to get some breakfast with Trudi at Panera. Then I packed all my stuff into Terry’s car and we drove over to Holden and rode with Abby. Today really was a tantrum day cause we were both trying to get the grab on our tantrums. Prob made like 100 tantrums all together today. After riding and tanning on the boat for a couple of hours we went and picked Trudi up to go to Wake Games. Watched the double up contest where Harley totally stomped his grabbed heel 9. After watching the prize ceremony (good riding Amber) we went to get some Chipoltley. SOOO awesome that when I asked for extra guacamole, the dude hit me up good! I was so stoaked on that Burrito.
After that we went to chill on Abby’s dock. Playing guitar and hanging out in the sunset. So cozy! The other dudes went to a keg party on Clearlake but I’m so tired and we’re getting up early to shredd tomorrow so I went back to my couch here at Abby’s. Planning on sleeping sooo good right now.
awesome pic Abby took on her phone
Time to pack up our bat cave to move out from this house. The owners of it get here tomorrow so everyone has to leave. Until today I had no idea where I was going to stay but then I went and rode with Abby on Holden. So now I get to stay on her couch for the next couple of days and riding a lot! (:
Now: food and lake chill
Screenshots from filming at Odub
Trudi graduated with top grades yesterday so of course we had to celebrate! Down town it was and hanging out with the rest of her classmates. Woke up today and went riding on lake Jessamine before we went out to watch the Wake Games. Sweet day. Both Carolina and Charlotte went through to the next round! If I’m up by 8 tomorrow I might go out to watch them ride before we go and ride Abbys V-ride on lake Holden. But then again, I haven’t been up by 8 in a loong time now…
Getting lose and ready to shred with some butt massage.. Love living with these people!

20.00 Chilled at the house with the dudes and Barrett teaching Trudi how to Rubics cube
23.30 Passed ooout
Had the best sleep EVER last night. Trudi’s alarm went off at 9 but we turned it off and kept sleeping for another hour before we woke up. There’s now 8 wakeriders livin’ in this house until friday when we’re moving out so we went into the kitchen and tried to not wake the dudes sleeping on the couch up. After some peanut butter toast for breakfast we went to the beach with our friend Terry in a car with air condition! The waves were massive so we thought about getting some surfing on but since we’re a bunch of lazy wakeboarders we just laid in the sand and chilled. Such a great day and then (I’d been talking about it for like a week) we got some fish tacos at a beach shack before heading home.
Its great staying at lake jessamine and I’ve been riding at odub a lot lately. Trying to get some presses down since AJ and Terry blow me away with their style. I love Orlando so much right now and I’m so pumped on wakeboarding all the time! Now I’m off to get some gas for a morning set with a dude I met at the lake party on friday. So great that there’s wakeboard boats everywhere!
I just saw this picture of the new a-frame at The Perfect Spot back home and it looks siiick! Can’t wait to hit it and all the statuses of people putting their boats in the water makes me happy! I’ve only got two more weeks here in super hot Florida so it’s great to see that it’s possible to ride back home.
New sick A-frame
Last summer at the spot!
Yesterday I packed all my stuff and left the Wakeboard Camp to go and live with Trudi on Lake Jessamine. I can’t believe how much heavier my bag has gotten since I arrived.. Anyways, we squeezed it into the car and drove over here last night. We also brought my two drawers from the camp and together with one of Trudi’s boards they make a nice shelf.
There’s six other wakeboarders besides me and Trudi staying in this house at the moment, so it’s pretty crowded. But believe it or not, the dudes are actually CLEANING right now. (Yup, it’s true!) While I. waiting for Trudi to finish school so that we can hit up Odub I went for a run, had some fresh strawberries for breakfast and now I’ll see if the guys will survive hitting their homemade rail in the backyard.
Livin’ in The Bat Cave!
Yesterday, I turned 20 and I felt really old.. It’s like Benjamin always used to say: “It’s only downhill from here”.. Haha, well I woke up pretty early and recieved a phone call from froggy saying that I’ll get my new board and bindnings soon (: Happy birthday to me! (:
Then a bunch of swedish dudes stormed into my room and jumped in my bed with a cinnamon bun and a strawberry. Pretty sweet breakfast, the only problem is that I sleep more or less naked so that was an interesting experience.. I spent my birthday cleaning, running and doing a bunch of boring stuff so that I could get saturday off. Then Trudi and Sara came and picked me up so I spent last night spooning with Sara and we woke up early to hit Island of Adventures today. AWESOME (:
Haven’t been riding much lately but hopefully that’ll change on tuseday when I move in with Trudi.. (: Here’s some pic’s from a while ago by Trudi Andersen.
