I’m back on the water!!
It’s so good to be able to sail again! I have put in a lot of hours on the water practicing various moves. We haven’t had amazing conditions yet but at least wind enough to get out and sail!
It is starting to get really crowded now as the world cup event over here is starting in a few weeks. It feels like it will be a great event as always and it feels amazing to be a part of it!
I am almost done with the new Viking Diaries episode but need some more action filmed. Sorry for the delay but my injury stopped the process a bit. But it feels like thin one will be a good one. I have had time to fine trim the clip and now it’s pretty much just action shots that needs to be put in to place! Will keep you guys posted!

Now I’m back on Gran Canaria efter a nice week at home in Sweden. I celebrated my girlfriend as she took her university graduation, and it was her birthday the same day so a big day to celebrate!
It was amazing summer weather and I hade time to focus on rehabbing my shoulder and it feels like it’s almost back to 100% now! The forecast looks good for the weekend and I really hope I can sail without the shoulder holding me back. I’m so motivated and really want to go out and push on the water so fingers crossed!

Since the last post I have been busy doing rehab and treatments for my shoulder injury. I trie to sail one day but it was to painful so I had to realize that I can’t windsurf until it’s properly healed. I went to a clinic in Vecindario together with Daida and they did an ultrasound check on the shoulder. The verdict is that I have a sprained shoulder. Good news as it probably won’t take to much time to get back!

Not being able to sail meant I have had time to watch some of the best sailors in the world and get inspired. The level is so high and I’m super stoked to be a part of the wave world tour, windsurfing is awesome!

During the days off water between rehab and training I have also been able to concentrate on my filming and editing which I really enjoy. Some fun projects and the 14th episode of the Viking Diaries is in the making, so stay tuned for that!

So after the wind patch we had here two weeks ago it has been pretty light. But I have had time to train and my parents came to visit which was really nice!
Unfortunately though I injured my shoulder during the warm up for a BJJ session this monday. I fell over and put all my weight on the shoulder and felt that something was wrong immediately. I was really sore in the evening and then the day after I went to Daida Moreno who’s not only a world class windsurfer, she is also a great physic therapist. Apparently there is some small damage to some tendons in the shoulder but with her treatments and rehab I probably can sail this weekend!

Now Mikael Linder from In To Fire & Water is here for a week and hopefully we’ll get some good shots from the water, can’t wait!

So after not have been sailing for almost two weeks over here it has finally started to be windy. The last two days has offered some good wind but no waves. It seems like the wind will stay a solid south swell is hitting this afternoon and will stick around for a couple of days. So I hope to score some good conditions and get some action shots for you!

So, I have been on Gran Carnaria almost a week now. It hasn’t been windy so I have been surfing, working out and trained Muay Thai.
Fun Muay Thai session with Dario and the rest of the Tatami 211 crew.
Even if there is no wind I kind of like to be here. It’s really quiet but after a couple of days you get used to it and it’s really nice to just be able to focus on training and getting ready for these windy days, which seems to be here next week.

As I said above it seems like we are in for some wind next week. Not to much but still good to get out there and sail and practice! I’m so motivated to train hard for this year and really happy to be able to spend some time down here!

The competition season is getting closer and I have booked my first trip of the year. I’m heading to Gran Canaria early April to practice for the upcoming comps. I feel it’s the right thing to do as I lack a bit of consistency in my port tack moves and hopefully get some more moves in the bag for the summer. I really do look forward to it as I haven’t windsurfed for more then a month now and really want to sail a lot.

But I have had time to focus on my fitness etc. I also had a presentation for my sponsors one evening talking about last year and my goals for this season..

Thanks to all my sponsors for making this possible!

So the winter has been pretty lame lately, not much wind and cold weather. But we are slowly going towards spring!
That has given me time to do other stuff though. I have been training a lot, released a new video with action from this winter, had a evening with a presentation for my sponsors and planned this year.
My plan is to go to Gran Canaria later this spring to practice for the upcoming season. I feel that I need to get super solid with my port tack, so that feels like a good decision!
The latest episode in the Viking Diaries has been going really good. Thanks to everyone who have watched it and for the nice comments!
Some exiting stuff is in the lineup for the season so stay tuned for good news!
Thanks to everyone who came and listened to me this Tuesday! I hope I got to inspire some of you, I think it’s really important to encourage young people to follow their dreams!
