Too much partying! I can feel my body getting destroyed after wakestock and now Båstad. I’ve had such a sick time and now I’m driving up to Linköping to ride with the crew my beloved boardstore Froggy. I have to stop like every hour to not fall asleep though, I can’t wait to get back into training, sleeping and eating well. Who would have thought 😉

Btw, here’s some footage from Wakestock, I’ll post you a massive update ones I have the pictures sorted out.


I’m alive

So I drove the 6 hours down to the swedish tennis week in Båstad. It’s pretty well known as a summer party place. The first thing that happened after I found the crew was that my team manager from BetSafe hugs the crap out of me. I was happy until I realized he was covered in champagne and after fighting him for a bit I came away with a soaking O’Neill Hoodie. I spent the next 30 minutes observing everyone, who by this time were completely wasted since there was an After Beach Party going on.  After everyone stumbled out of Peppes Bodega (the name of the place) I got asked the question “Carro, are you sober enough to drive?”. Since I hadn’t had anything to drink at all I said yes. “Okay cool, hey guys!! Carro can drive the Lambo back home” was the next comment. So I ended up getting the keys thrown to me and drove it home.

As I was driving it my fellow Xtravel team rider Erika Lindberg called me since she just arrived down so she picked me up and we went to get ready for the night. We had a sweet dinner with the rest of the Betsafe crew and then the craziness began. Such a sick party and even though I wondered before what I would do here, cause it’s really not my type of place at all, I’m so happy that I went!
Been recovering and sleeping most of the day today and now it’s time to get on it again!

Time to leave..

I can’t believe 3 months has gone by. It’s been so fast and I’ve definitely had one of the sickest times of my life. Been so sad packing up all my stuff since it means that I’m leaving Andres, Becky, Mason, Matt, Debbie and DC; the incredible staff of Extreme Gene. Had my last boat set last night in the sunset on glassy water and then a paella dinner. (Now it sounds like I’m leaving forever but technically I’m planning on going back in 4 weeks)

Now it’s time for new adventures as I head for wakestock. Right now in Manchester Airport waiting for Trudi to land. To be honest I’m a bit nervous about the contest since I haven’t thought about competitions in so long. I’m stoked to meet up with the other riders who I haven’t seen in ages like the British shredders Jules, Charlotte and Sian. I have a feeling it’s going to be a sick week! (Even though I have to get used to the temperature change and riding in a wetsuit again)

I’ll keep you posted!


I got it!!!!

Can’t describe how happy I am right now! Whirlybird is one of the two tricks I dreamt about landing when I started wakeboarding, about 7 years ago! Today I managed to do it so that makes it my first invert with a full twist. DC dragged me out of bed to go for a morning ride, I let him ride first and when I got on the water I was pretty much still asleep. I fell on so many of my basic tricks that I decided to just throw it and on my 5th go I kept riding. I couldn’t really believe that I was still standing and just screamed a little girly scream. So happy right now!

For you who don’t know what a whirly is I googled it and picked the first video that shows it. Here you go:

Oh and this as well means that the bet is cancelled out! I don’t have to ride in only my bikini att Chill N Ride! Yewww! (:
