There is nothing like warm summer mornings at the west coast in Sweden. Waking up looking out on clear flat water. William (3) and I took advantage of the beautiful morning and went for a paddle around Bårholmen.
Playing in the woods with my boy
William and I had a great day out in the woods. After that I took care of my boat and got it all done for winter. I ended the day with a night paddle in the lake.
Winter in Sweden – Playing in the snow
We got lots of snow the last couple of days, and the sun was out. A perfect day for some outdoor games.
William, Erica and I went to the playground in the morning and in the afternoon, I had to paddle out on the lake with my SUP board.
Winter surfing a lake in Sweden – Surf edition
After putting the vlog up a couple of days ago I felt like I din´t had enough surfing in it. So here is a more “surf friendly” edition of the same day…
Cold water surfing on the lake Vänern
We finally got a real good swell on Vänern. I have been waiting on this days for years. I did som recording but it was to good to focus on recording so after some waves I put the camera away and had one of the best days in the water for a long time.
The swell have been big in Hoddevik Norway
The past couple of days the swell have been really big and stormy. We surfed everyday but it have been rough!
Finally on our last night the swell droped a bit and the wind calmed down. We had a EPIC afternoon surf, and surfed until dark.
Another surf trip to Hoddevik Norway
It past some time since i uploaded last time. Still surfing though. Just not as good to documenting it.
This and the next post will probably be video material from the latest trip to Norway.
Surf trip to Portugal – Ericera and Peniche
In the en off September me, Adam , Andreas and three other broes left the fall in Sweden for some warmer weather and better waves down in Portugal.
After some forgotten passports we were finally on the direct flight from Gothenburg to Lisaboa. We arrived late afternoon and finally got our boards and picked up our car.
We had rented a apartment in Ericera with a awesome view of the town, and we could see about three or fore different surf spots from the balcony.
The first couple of days we surfed at the beachbreak Foz Do Lizandro ten minutes south from Ericera. It was a decent beach break, a lot of people out in the water. Thes best thing about this break was probably the view from the restaurant where we had after surf food and beer!
After trying out some of the waves down in Ericera we wanted to try out some spots around the Peniche area. Most of the places we looked at didn´t work at all, but we finally found a nice little wave.
So we surfed this spot a couple of days both sunrise, day and sunset. And it worked good!
Epic view from the roof of the building!
That´s it for now.
North winds at Vassbotten
Summer surfing at Sikhall – Epic wind
The last couple of weeks have been good. During the summer it can go weeks between the surf, but the last week been so good so we have been in the water three times three different days. The last week we surfed Vassbotten twice but last Saturday Lars and I went up to Sikhall and we scored big time. We both brought sails that was way to big for the wind but since we didn´t bring any other sails we had to suit up and go for it anyway. Good for us the wind was strong and consistence!
Next week hopefully bring us a solid n swell with winds strong enough to create some waves at Vänern again. Time to get some new and smaller sails so we ca hit the big lake 😉
