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…
I’m so happy that team Sweden has arrived here! These dudes are so great and I’ve really missed them. Today I’ll go out to ride with them and Cassie in freezin’ 55 degrees! Luckily I brought my O’Neill snowboard jacket so at least I’ll stay warm..
Some picks on the dudes by Nick Johnson from yesterday (:
John John ripping!
Dusk trampoline sesh
Don’t try to ride straight into the A-frame at Odub…
So, after almost 2 months without chocolate our favorite John John brought us “some” from back home… (:
We had a sweet night last night where me and Trudi met up with our friends from Washington. After beating them in beer pong we hung out at the house and chilled with some more friends. I’m surprised that today we both woke up at 8.30 and now we are heading out to OWC for some sundag shredding (:
I love Permanent marker…
Some of my swedish friends from the wakeboarding high school in Fagersta will arrive here tomorrow! Im super excited to see them all cause I’ve really missed them. After hanging out in the boat and watching “the other Caro” work on hs 5’s we all went back to Nicola and Amber’s place for a little barbeque before I had to go back to the camp. After cleaning their room, I made a little welcome sign so that the boys will know where they are sleeping. (:
Can’t wait to see you guys!
waking up at 7 am cause I can’t sleep when these bright lights keep flashing in my eyes.. Oops it’s lightning…
Is it wrong that I think that this is sooo cool?? And cozy.. (:
Just went to hot yoga with these girls and it was amazing! I was dripping sweat on the floor after like 10 minutes. Can’t believe I haven’t tried this before. Definitely something I’ll keep doing back home..
(I need to find another camera for shots like this, they all turn out so blurry)
It’s now 8.49, good night folks…
When me and Trudi were riding a couple of days ago, we took these pictures with the “One picture every other second” option on my GoPro. Kind of entertaining…
Setting up the camera…
Ehhm.. something’s wrong..
AAAAHHHH we’re standing in a nest of fire ants!!
Love what you see as soon as you walk through the door…
After a days shredd at OWC I slept at Trudi’s last night again. We stayed in bed, ate ice cream and watched a movie before we fell asleep. So today, we woke up early and headed out to Sebastian beach to meet up with Charlotte and her friends. Thank godness for Emily’s car with both AC and a working stereo! (No offence Trudi…).
When we got there the waves looked amazing so we decided to go and rent a surf board (even though we don’t really surf) and some nice guys in a surf shop helped us out. We even got to borrow one of their personal rash guards to prevent us from getting burned. So with that and our coloured zinc we headed out for a couple of hours. This was my first time shortboarding and it was really hard but I was stoked to actually get up a couple of times!! (even though I fell of straight away). Surfing is soo much fun and I’ll def see if I can go somewhere to do it again!
Emily and Katie
After shredding, tanning, swimming, burning, getting worked bad, chilling and running on hot sand we decided to get some food. We asked the dudes in the surf shop for a good place and they recommended the little fish shack right next door. Honestly, that was the best thing I’ve eaten since I got here!
Yesterday I went to OWC to ride with Trudi and I was soo happy to see her again! After feeling a little home sick it feels great to meet up with a “swedish” friend who reminds me of home. And yesterday was crazy!
So, we decided to go to OWC to shoot right? What do I do? I forget the memory card back home! So in a crazy buzz of happiness we both jumped into Trudi’s car, raced to the nearest Best Buy while screaming and laughing in Swedish. We ran barefoot into the store, grabbed the first memory card we found and was out of there in less than 3 minutes. Before getting in the car and racing back, we both grabbed a Starbucks frappeccino and gased back to the cable.
We rode and shot for about 2 hours and got some pretty nice material. Although we both learned a lot about shooting with a GoPro and some of our material went straight in the trash.. I was supposed to go down town last night but after a day like this with both morning shredd and cable I was so tired that I almost fell asleep in the car on our way back to Clermont. Got stoked when I saw Trudi’s facebookstatus saying that she was as tired as I felt..
Well, here’s some pics from yesterday. Enjoy!
Trudi’s awesome car! (which we need to clean…)
GoPro shooting, video coming up
Brandon woke me up at 7 this morning to go ride. So with a huge coffee cup, The Killers in the speakers and the sunrise we went out. I tried some frontflips again (which turned out to be backrolls). It felt really awkward but at least I got some good laughs out of it. Then Brandon and his friend Dan rode while I was driving the boat like I was drunk or something. Somehow it was really hard for me to go straight this morning, weird!
Now, I’m going to jump on the trampoline and wait for everyone to got to OWC and meet up with Trudi. It looks like it’g going to be lots and lots of riding today. (:
Picture from when I rode with Amber and Abby a couple of days ago
Stalefish… (love gopro!)
Aahh! Just got some pictures of my new wet-suit in my inbox! It’s hard to imagine needing to wear one when it’s this warm but I guess things aren’t as good in Sweden. I’ll prob want to wear this one anyways just cause it looks sooo good! Thank you, thank you O’Neill and Froggy! (:
I just came back from a sweet set with Brandon where I worked on some landings and tried the Melissa, really liked that board on the water too! It’s so light and.. eeh, well.. it’s pretty 😉
I went to ride with Amber and Abby today in the sun, warmth and no wind. Abby’s V-ride was loaded so the wake was sick! I mixed some shooting I did a couple weeks ago at TWC with some stuff we shot today and here’s a little video for you!
(sorry about the bad edit, I just wanted to show you how it’s like over here)
