The Perfect Spot

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!

Just moved in with Trudi! (:

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.

Laterrr

Livin’ in The Bat Cave!

Birthday

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.

Wake STHLM

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…

Deadline coming up..

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…

the rest of rest-sunday

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..

Saturday night out

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. (:

Pool party

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.

Going crazzzy!

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 had a great talk with Mandy and Brandon after dinner. I was feeling a mixture of homesickness, frustration and just regular sickness for having too many chocolate chip cookies but talking about stuff really helped. You guys are awesome, I’m so happy you are at the camp! I have so much on my mind right now that it’s hard to just appreciate the sun, my sweet friends and focus on my riding. Hopefully a good nights sleep will do me good so, gdnight world!

Cold!

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
Hot boys…

Oops…

Don’t try to ride straight into the A-frame at Odub…

We love John John!

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…

Funday friday

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!
