Just booked 3 flights from here to Sweden, Germany and Ukraine. I hate booking flights! Otherwise life at Xtreme is so good! Unfortunately the WiFi at the camp is down at the moment so I cant write a massive update as I would like but hopefully it will be up and running soon!
Lucky my boardbag has off-road wheels cause I’m trekking to the train now!
Yesterday I was out at my sisters summer house with her and her husband. This was where my wakeboarding started, behind our little 50 horsepower out boarder. I started thinking about what it would have been like if my dad hadn’t suggested that I tried wakeboarding. I’d never have started and probably would be in uni somewhere loving the few weeks of summer holidays. I’m happy my dad got that old wakeboard when I was 13 instead of just letting me tube like I wanted to 😉
Just checked in Lucas new website (Link) and I’m listed as one of his friends. Sick site, check it out!
Although he did spell my name wrong… 😉
Just got home from a weekend outside of Uddevalla where the shred-family Hoppe just had their yearly contest. The weather was epic and the riding even sicker so I’m stoked to have flown home for this event! I saw so many people I haven’t seen in ages and even though I haven’t ridden cable since back in Australia (except for a couple of laps with the awesome crew at glasfryn wakepark) it was so much fun.
Contest vice I got my butt kicked by the rest of the girls and the level has gotten so high with Judith Hoppe (the youngest in the Hoppe family) throwing sick S-Bends and Tantrums and Malin Rapp sticking an S to Blind!! Anna Simlund, the swedish cable champ, got one of the gnarliest crashes I’ve ever seen on cable on a backmobe but she was close and I was stoked on getting my Blind Judge back. I was stoked to be hanging out with my friend Trudi again after having a great time at wakestock and she absolute killed the transfer box but unfortunately we both rode really bad in the finals. I guess it’s hard to keep up with both boat and cable at the same time. The winner this year was Malin and she well deserved it!
Pro Womens Podium was:
1. Malin Rapp
2. Judith Hoppe
3. Anna Simlund
When it comes to the guys I have no words. This was without a doubt the sickest cable contest I’ve ever been to with people throwing double flips like they were pealing bananas. Mattias doing his whirly dick, Jeremia double mute halfcab roll and Benjamin double S-bends. But except for the home boys riders like Steffen Vollert, Nico Von Lecrhtenfeld and FelixGeorgii (who all rode wake the line and Felix won the pool gap at wakestock) were there along with my beloved Team T-shirt from Denmark. Watching the finals was pure pleasure. I was so happy I wasn’t juding the finals of pro men but the podium looked like this:
1. Nico von Lerchenfeld
2. Benjamin Hoppe
3. Felix Georgii
I dug up my judging skills in some of the other classes though and judged, amongst others, the Open Mens category. Even here the level was sick with three different riders landing 7’s! In the end Nick Johnson was the winner after an amazing clean run and since he just turned 18 we sprayed him down with 3 bottles of champagne. Open Men finished like this:
1. Nick Johnsson
2. Christian Forsten
3. Joakim Olsson
I’m stoked the amount of girls actually stepping up and competing is growing. There were so many good riders in the Open Womens category throwing inverts of the kickers. In the end Susanne from Denmark was the winner but the podium looked like this:
1. Sussanne Friis
2. Malin Simlund
3. Isabelle Öblom
The rest of the results and a lot of pictures can be found on WCPE’s facebook site which is here: LINK
Except for the wakeboarding there was also a sick amount of stunts going on with the snowboard/skiing rail jam, the water jump and the beach volleyball tournament, not to mention the after party! I loved that BetSafe was sponsoring this year and gave people the opportunities to bet on the riders. I was ranked as 3rd on the girls side with the odds 4:1 after Anna and Judith. (I hope you didn’t bet on me this time 😉 ).
It was so great seeing everyone again and a huge thanks to everyone who made this comp so sick! I can’t wait to be back next year!
beware of the dragon
The question everyone seem to ask me lately. Well for now HOME in Stockholm doing nothing but boring laundry, cleaning, painting my nails, meeting friends for coffee, having Sushi with my sister, buying flight tickets, meeting up with BetSafe, sorting out my company, taking long baths, hanging out with my brother, moving boxes and just enjoying doing nothing for a change. 😉
“Pretty fly for a WiFi”
Been spending the day out at the place where Froggy holds its summer camps with a lot of people learning to wakeboard or developing their riding. We’ve had such a fun day with a mixture of rain and sunshine but plenty of stoke. 3 boats, one world champion jetskier and lots of boarding and surfing. I stuck my tootsie first try so I was really happy about that and Tom, one of my team rider friends got his krypt back. We finished late (since the sun sets so late here) and came back from surfing around 11 pm. Then a massive BBQ and now bed! Got to say the best part of the day was when Erik tried on my old wetsuit… 😉
Erik looking hot!
Boards and wetsuits for the campers!
Sweet lake in as the sun started to set
Yeah froggy and tom! About to try some crowmobes for my first time, nervous!! (:
