Can not believe its already december. the 3rd already, what?
Alot has been going on this year, alot of trips, and i have meet so many good and nice people along the way. Love it!
Its been a good year, in february i went to Portugal for a 10 day surftrip with Sami, Jon and Anders. Good fun and good waves, many laughs
and overall good company, thanks guys, you are the best!
In march i went with my lovely girlfriend to Gran Canaria with her family, i managed to surf one day there on a 9ft longboard. and i scored, so much fun
that day, since the waves were awsome and clean, not big but clean! Really happy to go on a trip like that.
June came and i was invited to the Portuguese surf film festival, this was the highlight of the summer in trips, a good festival and i had a presentation about RETO for the people of Portugal and Ericeira. I went there with Lotta, Patrik and Jonna. 10 days of PURE LOVE, GOOD FEELINGS and the sun was shining on us, and overall superb trip with awsome people, good beer and no wind, a trip to remember for sure! Thanks to everyone involved, my lovely friends beside me, Nico, Rui, Su, Rich, Bruno at amar hostel, etc etc, and hugo for the good beers in the bar aftersurf. what a trip!
The whole summer was great here, so warm and soo good, and a lot of work. many days at the summerhouse in fäboda, so our cats could be outside and play, and ofcause cause it was damn nice there aswell. a good summer!
During the whole summer i had the thought of byron bay surf festival in the back of my head. i was invited in May, and i had a couple of months to decide if i should go or not. and ofcause i had to go!
In october i went and man was i in for a good trip, a trip that will leave good memories until om 80, if i live that long. I want to thank Mike Jahn for inviting me and RETO. All the good people i meet, Sami Gustafson, Nico his brother, and their mom Suzy, awsome people and thanks for the hospitality and the surf! Mike once again and his family, Rodrigo that i shared my workshop with, Jair from The surfers journal. Joel Fitzgerald and his wife Chrystal. Bob Mctavish, Nat Young, Thomas Bexon, Harrison Roach, the deus crew at Byron Bay. legends! im sure there is someone i have forgot, but a big thanks to everyone!
Going to Bob Mctavish shop also was amazing, stood there like a little kid drooling on those awesome longboards, the involvement for example, i want one.
And to see Bob shape a bluebird for Harrison Roach.
There are many things that i did not mention here of 2013, if i did it would be so much to write that it would take forever. Of cause there are lot of other things going on in my ”private” life besides surfing and reto, and if you want to check that out, atleast some of it, you can follow me on instagram.
THANKS TO EVERYONE, you know who you are! i doubt that 2014 can be better, but i will try to make it better, like we always do!
Fred och Kärlek. Peace and Love.
