I´m on Bonaire in the Caribbean to train for the upcoming PWA Freestyle World Cup starting 9th of April. On a light wind day I went out with my foil gear and trained the foil gybe. Still, a lot to improve, but it´s a lot of fun to do this “new flying” discipline when the wind is too light for freestyle.
Thanks to the guys at Windsurfing.TV for making this one. I love freestyle and I LOOOOOVE this move: the BURNER! I live for the moment when I´m in the air holding the sail in one hand. It´s just cool!

After an incredible road trip to Tarifa, south of Spain, with plenty of action in forms of windsurfing, skating and training, I´m already back on Bonaire in the Caribbean. In one month the first World Cup of the year will start here. I´m super happy to announce a new sponsor for the upcoming season: MATAKI =)
Mataki develops and manufactures asphalt roofing, radon systems and roof, wall and ground sealing systems. Their products are specially manufactured for Norwegian tough conditions.
I had one day in Norway before my flight to Bonaire, so I got to meet everyone in the company. They are super motivated and really like the idea of sponsoring a “different” kind of sport than the “normal” ones. I´m proud to represent another company from Indre Østfold where I grew up. Can´t wait to kick off the season with them on the team. You will see MATAKI flying around on the water in my sails from now on.
Great meeting with Petter Holth and the whole crew. Do you think I can get this golf player to also start windsurfing?

Also a big thanks to my other sponsors who are with me for this exciting year! You can check them all out on the right side of my web page.
It´s time for a 2nd session here on Bonaire now. The wind is blowing so I better get to the beach now! Thanks for checking in on my page and make sure to follow my daily updates on Instagram by clicking here.

Save our ocean!
We were 2 months in Jericoacoara, Brazil to windsurf. When we went to the lagoon we found a place right outside the main streets full of plastic. My friends said yes to join a beach clean up, and it was a nice thing to do together between freestyle sessions. We hope for a cleaner ocean and that we find a solution to all the plastic pollution. Take action and do a beach clean up at your beach=)
Two days of foiling, surfing, skating and mountain biking. Epic days before the storm hits Tarifa!
Perfect freestyle conditions – watch the clip!
