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!
9.00 Morning set behind the boat with Theo. I accidentally used up all the gas so we broke down… Oops

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.
Igår var en tung dag då jag och Max fick beskedet om att vi var tvungna att ställa in Wake Up STHLM 2011. I och med att vår finansiella situation drog ut på tiden och diverse missförstånd så kan vi inte längre genomföra tävlingen i år. Med ett nästan hel färdigt event och en ny sammarbetspartner i ryggen så fortsätter vi dock att planera för 2012 och vi har stora förhoppningar om nästa år. Istället får jag se fram emot schyssta event som Lund Wakefest, Oysteins summer rail challenge och The Perfect Spot i sommar.
You can’t always get what you want…

So it’s almost time to apply to universities in Sweden but it sucks! This is what I’d rather do than send in my applications:
F this, let’s go ride…
I spent the rest of this sunday tanning on the dock at Trudi’s with Sara and Trudi. We also went to IHOP and got chocolate chip pancakes (yup, I’m super healthy) for breakfast. As we walked in to the restaurant we all realized that we weren’t wearing any shoes, guess that’s something we’ve just stopped doing without really notice it. I’m really tired now so time to go to sleep..
Just woke up after a night out with Trudi and Sara. After riding with Nicola behind her sick X-star yesterday I went into Orlando to hang out with my swedish friends. We headed over to these guys where we started our night with some pool and downs before going out to Roxy. I had a blast dancing and we met a bunch of our other friends out there. After the cab ride home I, for some reason, decided to swim at 3 am. So I got in the water and was terrified of all the gators. (oh yeah, we saw one up close today when we went on Nicolas boat.)
After my little swim, I fell asleep on the couch and I just woke up, still a little wet with great memories from last night. (:
So I ended up at a little private pool party at Katie’s house with the boys and some other people. This is a song which I’ve started to love over here and which makes me super happy! We listened to it a lot tonight..
Had some fun riding today at the camp. The water was glassy and the sun was out (as always) and I tried to get those two tricks down, but nope, not today either.
Pick from wednesday by Nick Johnson
So, I’m so damn close on landing two new tricks. SO CLOSE!! But no..
Had a really nice set with Billy today. It felt good to ride without being stressed (which I’ve been a lot lately) and even though it was pretty windy, I almost landed some stuff. Did I mention I was close?
First time in ages I had to wear a wet suit…
I felt obligated to ride without shorts today, so I did…
