The path home

Driving home from the snow and Espeland, Jondal Norway was twisty and full of mind maps and rainbows. Jürgens fractured collarbone and other shoulder (out and in) hurt socket kept him from driving the 16 hour long haul and pushing the car.       I=Chauffeur Wolfe in his WolfVolvo. We kept the fully loaded beast running cuz we had no starter which meant engine-on at gas pumps and parking only on hills to pop the clutch in 2nd. Our future ideas that sprung up&UP during the month were put into word-doc and plans are in the mix now. OLe´!

Folgefonna camp riding

Been too busy cooking, riding and not sleeping to put these up. The Fonna month has gone by fast and slow. Loads of work and play. Meters of rain, doom-fog and some sun is the Fonna. Rad spot! Tmrw we start tearing down the camp and sorting it out.

±My hommie Jürgen popped one shoulder out and got a minor fractured in the other. Sux. Watch out for fast rock ollies cuz they can cripple. I will be the chauffeur driving us home to Halmstad in the stink Volvo. Mission!

Folgefonna Norway

1 month of living in a camp in Espeland Norway feeding 115 hungry redbulled up ski and snowboard kids and shredding the Folgefonna glacier park in the afternoons is the deal. The camp set up is sweet and took a week to complete. 5 sk8 ramps, 14 trampolines, snowbox set up, Big Teepee, huge tents for feed, free Urge Intense mock Redbull spazz drink(Kids on coffee), billiards, pingpong, waxing tent, slack-lines, karaoke, X-box station, balance boards, unicycles, bmx, boats, wakeboards, fishing(red spotted trout), waterfalls into glacial lakes, white-moonshine-go-blind, crew from all over is good and the riding is rad. Camp stuff Norway style.

This track in the ears and looking out to the sea of Japan before drop’n=Good.

Layered walls of sound from tracks off the Life of Leisure EP by Washed Out main-man Ernest Greene were in the shred mix this past winter in Hokkaido Japan. Washed out. Georgia.

Kiroro snow world

It’s almost summer in Sweden and I finally have time so sit back and think about all that happened  living in Hokkaido this winter. Learn. Work. Rip. Sake. Be merry. Together. Crew. Quake. Tsunami. Silent. Shred. Celebrate friends taking us under their wings and showing us around and finding our own way. Breathing the moment at all the new zones we hit in Japan. Rallying tsunami charity events and sticking it out to the end of the season.
