Yes, I do believe I am.
Got home from the ferry around 8 this morning after dropping Sofia off at work (poor girl), didnt sleep much on the way over and immediately crashed in the couch when I got home. Woke up at noon, ate breakfast and saw that the wave/wind forecast looked decent for Torö (the surf spot I usually go to). Called around to some friends and its on, going back down there in a few hours for an afternoon/sunset surf. Feels pretty bad environmentally to go back the 70 kilometers when I was there this morning (the ferry from gotland lands just a few miles from the surf break), but this time im sharing a car with a friend so we’re at least trying to be somewhat green.
at least we’re not flying to indonesia to surf.
for anyone interested in surfing, here’s a shot of the quiver I’m bringing to Torö today; since I have no idea what the waves are going to be like today I’m bringing three different boards:
from left to right:
Sofia’s 6’10″ x 20″ 1/4 x 2″ 5/8 B Hansel funboard. If the waves are small this one rips! I’m totally jealous, wish I had one too.
Nord custom quad fish 5’10″ x 20″ 1/2 x 2″ 3/8. The great guys at Nord helped me out with designing this one, really fun quadfin that works in anything up to head high+.
6’0″ something shortboard, from a local shaper in Brazil. I bought this board from my friend Joao de la Costa in Pipa, Brazil two years ago. It’s way too small for me but I love it in powerful surf like fast beachbreaks. I’ve never tried it in Sweden but I’ll give it a shot if the waves are packing enough power (which I doubt).
not in the picture is my Nord 6’6″ step up board but that one needs a little more size than what we get here in the cold waters of Sweden. now you know what i surf on!
