Backslick - The Making Of

Been in Stockholm for a while now and finally understood how the east side locals get their everlasting backslick hairstyle. All they need is a weekend, salt water and a jetski. The haigel, spray and hairdryers are obviously just to keep it there thorugh the weekdays.

Check the behind-the-scenes video:

Backslick? Yes please, I love it.

Oslo singletrack city

Came back to Oslo after good times out west and had some good days at the office. Sometimes somebody needs to work and keep the wheels rolling and the machines of society and the globall economy running, you know.... And it doesn't take all day.

Oslo is not the worst place in the world to be, if you have to be in a city. Besides downtown beachvolley-sessions, wakesurf and windsurf in the fjord, there is excellent singletrack mountainbiking right outside the city centre. Havre-P and me went out for some singletrack minigolfing up in the Grinda-hood and came back happy.

Havre-P knows the woods like his back pocket.

Some nice minigolf pitches up and down through Nordmarka.

Next: Stockholm, hope it will be wakesurf city.

Stadsurfing; more good times at the west cape!

Had another good roadtrip out west to the Stad-land. A wave of summer just hit the country, and at the same time some sets of good waves from the North Atlantic came in. That means throw some stash together, get in the car and head out west.

E-bay on Saturday, another nice one goes unridden.

Friday afternoon we left Oslo and came to Stryn just in time for a warm welcome and some classic BBQ-ing at the Graff house. Then a little trip to Folven for some attåt and the next thing we know it is morning and time to get back on the road and hit the ocean. At E-bay the waves were looking pretty good and there was plenty of room in the water. Banks are not too good at the moment so it was peaking everywhere anyway so it was every man was for himself and full on gambling for the ones who did not close out.

Graff: Another word for Hygge. Only thing missing was the minigraver. Thanx Johan, Henke and the others!

If the waves were good then the weather was perfect. 100% bluebird, 18 hrs of sun per day, and bikini temperatures. Hoddevikawaii here we come. Between surf sessions the only thing to do was fry some skin, grill some hotdogs and get ready for the next session. The swell did not last forever so it was all about gitting as many sessions as possible the first days.

Frode-fashion, Kjøttulf, Jallis and Ola chilling between advanced bathing sessions in E-bay. As clearly can be seen in the picture there were also lots of hot blondes surrounding the surfers theese days.

Kittil catches a nice left from the shipwreck.

Thanx to Simen @ Lapoint.

Stad: We'll be back. While we are waiting, what about some singletrack mountainbiking? Stay tuned! -Torkel
