Simmer style 2015

The 2015 Simmer Style sail are now launched and hopefully in your local shop. Check simmerstyle.com to find your closest dealer! The new sails are great and make sure you get to try them out! 

Sweden goes off

The last week Sweden has been really windy. Since I got back from Tenerife I have been sailing a lot. A few sessions in my home spot ”Läjet” and one down in Vilshärad, Halmstad. That’s a really good spot that I would like to sail a bit more in the future as it reminds me a bit of Klitmöller.

But the most memorable day was at one of my all time favourite spots called ”Åsa”. This spot works when it’s straight on shore at home and pretty windy. The waves over there have a bit of punch and togheter with the cross on starboard tack wind it’s pretty much my favourite conditions. I had a lot of fun that day and everybody out there was ripping!

Back home

Hi!

I’m back home from the canaries. I had a great time except from the fact that I didn’t go through the trials in any of the events. It was a shame as I felt good and had train hard. But in my heat there wasn’t much wind or waves so I had a hard time coming up to my normal standards. But I’ll guess that comes a bit with experience as well… 
After the comp in Tenerife I got some nice training sessions and started to land 360s. I got some footage so I’m editing the next episode in my podcast. 
Atm I’m back home and it’s firing. Tomorrow seems to be a classic day. Hopefully I can get some pictures and video to share with you. 
Keep rippin,
Mac

Tenerife pt.1 and Pozo sum up

Hi!
 
Well, Pozo didn’t really go as I had hoped for but I still had a great time with my friends and got some freesailing in as well. I even got the opportunity to commentate on the PWA live stream together with Ben Proffitt. That was an awesome experience and hopefully I’ll get to do some more of it, as I liked it a lot!
 
Now I’m in Tenerife, preparing for the upcoming event here. I’m super motivated to sail here and really looking forward to do the trials! Yesterday I was out on 5,3 Blacktip and my 85 ltr Quantum. There were some small waves breaking and I got to know the spot a bit. Hopefully there will be some more wind today. 
 
Stay tuned,
Mac

Pozo pt. 3

Hi!

Two days ago we were able to do three rial heats out of four. I was in heat number two and during our heat it was a bit hard as there were super onshore, really small waves and I was on 5,0 which was very on and off. I had a hard time getting my moves and didn’t reach my normal standards, which was a shame because I have been training hard all year and am feeling good on the water. Well, I’m taking this experience with me for the next event. Now I know what I’m going to do different when the heat doesn’t go as planned in the next comp. And I would like to congratulate all the riders going through the super tough trials!

These last days here in Pozo I’m going to concentrate on training and really enjoy being a part of all this which always has been my big dream!

 
A big thank you to all my sponsors and family for your support, I’m greatful!

Backloop from my PWA trial heat
 

Pozo pt. 2

The past days has been windier but there hasn’t been much waves. The comp has started and yesterday there were some waves coming in but not enough to start the trials though. If the waves and wind are the same today we will probably get going. 

Fingers crossed I’ll sail a good heat and hopefully pass the stacked trials. I’m super motivated and will go for it!!

 

All the best,

Mac

Pozo pt.1

Hi!
 
Now I have been in Pozo for two days. It hasn’t been pumping as I hoped for but  yesterday I was out on my new 5,3 Simmer black tip. The new sails are working really good. Sailed them on Maui during the shoot too so knew what to expect. This year I will have the black and blue colour which I think looks sick!
 
It looks like there might be wind tonight and tomorrow, so hopefully I got to train a bit more before the event starts.
 
Keep you posted
Mac
 
Getting my new stuff ready for Pozo!
 
 

Summer

Sweden has been kind of lame since my last post. It has been pretty good weather and everyone is enjoying the summer but the wind isn’t really coming through. It has been a few freestyle days and in the beginning of June we had a few decent days. But two decent days in almost two months isn’t good enough.. Well in a week I’m off to Pozo and hopefully there is some good conditions and I’m super motivated to go big! 
 
Here are some shots from one session in A-bay.

Summer mission

Sweden had some ok wind during the midsummer weekend. A bit too north to produce really good conditions but it still was fun to sail. I have a few shots from that but will upload them in another post. 
 
I have been working a bit on the interior design in my new van. I’m happy how it came out. I can fit all my sails, boards, mast etc and can sleep in there without any problems. Now I’m ready to go for forcast based trips, comps and other stuff. 
 
Big thanks to Tolle for helping me out!
