A quick update from Linköping where the Swedish Action Games are taking place this weekend! Yesterday I picked up previous world champion Sophia Reimers who flew in from Hamburg and we drove down the two hours to Linköping. The Breddas has spend the last few weeks planning a sick setup and inviting some of Europes best riders.
Yesterday we had a practice sesh and holy crap these girls have some balls! Both Maxine Sapulette and Sophia we’re killing it and we all tried to hit the transfer of death. Kicker to down rail. Luckily I was first to try it and I ended up flying through the air but missing the rail, landing on the boards the whole think was floating on, cartwheeling out and barely missing smashing my head in the side of it. I decided to take a break from hitting it and let the others have a go. After watching both Max and Sophi almost smash their faces too we all kinda decided that we’re going to focus on the other obstacles in the comp today.
Unfortunately its raining really hard but with some fresh wetsuits from Froggy we’ll hopefully be alright 🙂
A quick 48 hours at home and now I’m back at the airport again. This time for a weekend in Dublin and the Dockland Summer Festival! This weekend is going to be so much fun and I can not wait to hit the Irish shopping streets! I don’t usually shop too often but the stores in the UK and Ireland are simply irresistible and since the event doesn’t start until tomorrow I have a whole day of spending way too much money on shoes ahead of me! 🙂
Time flies by in this part of the world and especially since I’ve been keeping busy. The last week has been filled of riding, working out and shooting while catching up with my “Floridian” friends. The best part was to get the chance to shoot with Rodrigo Donoso, one of the best photographers in the business during our Hyperlite shoot for the 2016 catalog. I would love to work with him again, such an amazing guy who just motivates everyone around him to be and perform their best.
As much as I love being in this part of the world, I feel like it is a finished chapter of my life. I absolutely love visiting here but I know now that this is not where I want to live anymore. On to new adventures but first, we’re going riding on one of the million lakes out here 🙂
Sunday mornings with Acro yoga in the park was a good start to my Orlando trip. Im not sure if my abs got sore from the positions or from laughing so hard but wow it was a fun few hours. Afterwords we headed to my favorite vegetarian restaurant in Florida, Dandelion followed by a night of gossip, tea and game of thrones at the house. I’m so stoked to be reunited with my florida friends!
