Lately, I have been trying to put together some blog posts, and by the end of them, I have found them very boring. It must have been at least 2-3 times where I´ve actually finished writing about a competition or an experience, but ended up taking it off again. So I thought I´d let some pictures do the work for me instead. Pictures are great, we are all very used to them by now, they tell us so many things, and if caught in the right moment of time, they can tell a whole story. So I´ve gathered up some photos from the last few months I thought would be fun to share with everyone.
As always, summertime means loads of activity for me. This is the time where most of the competitions on the world tour are compressed, so it always ends up being a time that first of all goes by faster than you would think, and being full of so many experiences which all blend into one action packed entity of SUMMER!. I´ve been around yes. This summer I´ve spent most of my time in the Canary islands, south of spain, Denmark, Turkmenistan, Turkey , Poland and Germany. Perhaps I´ve left a place out. As I mentioned, it was a busy summer with some amazing racing moments. Although I had some bad luck here and there, I have been so happy with my equipment, and the preparation I did over the winter has lifted my level considerably which is such an uplifting experience. I still have tons of stuff to work on to be more complete, but I know now that on the right days, I can kick some ass!. I am still loving windsurfing as much as 10 years ago! I will let these pictures below show a bit about where I´ve been and what I´ve been up to over the last months.
