Went up to Gesundaberget today with some friends, No pow today but still loads of fun! They even had a small bigjump ready so we did some crazy grabs and got mad air!

Fun day for sure!

Back home

December 19, 2008

Ice and rain = no snowboarding so we left Umeå today and went home, Marc flew back to Austria, Peter drove back to Skellefteå and me and Nils drove down south. Sorry for leaving you in the scheisse weather Anton 😉

Almost ran into two mooses in the woods, luckily i have reflexes like a cat and managed to brake in time, always sketchy with mooses on the road.

American gladiator Malibu is my new hero just check this clip out! SWEET!

Yesterdays madness

December 19, 2008

We hit two spots yesterday. The first one was some kind of art sculpture upside down wallride thing, pretty crazy but not that big,, looked kinda cool though.

Second spot was just pure madness, we had to shovel a 50 m inrun to a kicker to a bank to a kicker to wallride and then shovel two landings. And the snow was melting away so fast. I had my doubts before we started but the spot turned out to work really good +  we got to drive Peters crazy towin machine again.

No were trying to decide if its worth to go to Skellefteå or if we should go home. The weather has really been against us the whole trip but we have got some good stuff anyways so im stoked!

A wet day

December 17, 2008

Like today you shouldn’t even have to get out of bed before 12 o clock, but somehow we managed to be up and ready at 8.30 picked up Anton and some breakfast at statoil then of to the spot which  was at some old power plant. It rained from the moment we got out of bed to the moment we got back to our beds.

Nothing quite worked out as planned. Peters flashes stopped working in the rain, i tried my best to protect my camera from all the water pouring down, and the spot didn’t work as we planned.

But the worst part was that the road down to the spot was a pretty damn long and super icy hill. Guess if we got stuck 😛 Luckily we got out of there with some mad driving skills and brutal manpower

Hopefully it wont rain anything tomorrow.

December 17, 2008

So tired right now. But 2 good missions in one day is really good, the weather is getting a little fucked at the moment, warm and windy but well be ok i guess.

Goodnight!

60cm powpow, a bunch of your best friends, bluebird, first tracks, that’s the recipe for one of the best snowboard days ive ever had on my home mountain Gesundaberget.
