Here’s some pictures from the Rip Curl surf competition at the Supertubos in Peniche and some friends surfing Gigi in Baleal. Great trip to Protugal, can’t wait to go back.
Had a little photo session at the beach today.
Some of the pics are a bit unsharp, but I still liked them.
13-16th of December we had some good snow days in Hemsedal. Here’s some GoPro clips I put together from Øysteins camera. Ann-Mari on telemark and myself on the snowboard.
Think I have had one good kitesurfing day since this semester started, one not so good day, and this day.. Just popped to the beach cause it was gonna be some insane winds and some crazy few decided to go kiting. I had to work, but just wanted to take some pictures quickly. Ended up running up and down the beach rescuing kiters who could not kite or land the kites because of the sudden strong wind gusts. Soaking wet and half an hour late for work, but ehh.. Only two weeks left of this semester and I will have almost a month off uni at least.. Hoping for some serious water and snow time!
Took my niece Amelia to the beach today. She’s gotten a wetsuit and harness for her birthday this year so she could try kiting when she came to visit in Norway this summer. Finally today we had some good wind and went out to Bore. It was rainy and nasty when we got there, but shortly after, the rain stopped, and later we also had some much welcomed sunshine. This is the first time Amelia tried a kite like this and she managed really well. In just a few hours she could fly the kite without troubles and even tried body-dragging in the water. Made me a really happy auntie to see the big smile on her face when she was in the water. Weeeee… Tomorrow we’ll try to get up early and head for Sola beach for some more fun! (Oh, yeah, I got to have some fun as well, tons of power in my 9m2 made for some big jumps and sweet surfing at Bore today – joy!)
The day started out a bit grey and cold, as the sun came out it got warmer and warmer, and suddenly there is also wind!! Couldn’t be more perfect. We were about 10+ people at Bore north and it was great, just what I needed! Was using my 12m North Rebel and my twin tip Brunotti board. Happiness! –>> More pictures at Flickr <<–
