Kia Cold Hawaii PWA World Cup Sum up

Well, this was an interesting week. As I didn’t go through the trials in neither of the first two events I was super motivated to do it this time.  I have always done good in Klitmøller and I hoped this year wouldn’t be an exception. The first day there was some wind but not much waves so we did a super session instead of the trials. Then the waiting game begun. After have been waiting for 5 days it was finally on during the last day. I was in trials heat 3 and the first two heats showed that it wasn’t easy conditions.

In my heat I manage to stay cool and get some good moves. I went through in to the main event and it was such a relief! Finally after trying and not making it everything came together and I did it.

In the main event I was up against Thomas Traversa. I’m super happy with my heat as I sailed better then I did in the trials. Unfortunately it wasn’t enough but Thomas was ripping and went on to win the whole event so I can’t complain!

Next up is Sylt. It feels so much easier going there now when I made it in Denmark and hopefully I can keep this trend!

Thanks to the organizers and the PWA for making the event happen. And to my sponsors, friends and Family for supporting me, I’m grateful!

Kia Cold Hawaii PWA pt.2

It has been really calm here in Cold Hawaii the last couple of days. The only day there was a chance for competition was wednesday. We had side-off winds and some head high waves occasionally came in. Even though there was no official competition I had a really fun day on the water!

It seems like there will be wind on Sunday, so I’ll guess we’ll have an early start that day…

Keep you posted,

Mac

Simmer style 2015

The 2015 Simmer Style sail are now launched and hopefully in your local shop. Check simmerstyle.com to find your closest dealer! The new sails are great and make sure you get to try them out!

Sweden goes off

The last week Sweden has been really windy. Since I got back from Tenerife I have been sailing a lot. A few sessions in my home spot ”Läjet” and one down in Vilshärad, Halmstad. That’s a really good spot that I would like to sail a bit more in the future as it reminds me a bit of Klitmöller.

But the most memorable day was at one of my all time favourite spots called ”Åsa”. This spot works when it’s straight on shore at home and pretty windy. The waves over there have a bit of punch and togheter with the cross on starboard tack wind it’s pretty much my favourite conditions. I had a lot of fun that day and everybody out there was ripping!

Back home

Hi!

I’m back home from the canaries. I had a great time except from the fact that I didn’t go through the trials in any of the events. It was a shame as I felt good and had train hard. But in my heat there wasn’t much wind or waves so I had a hard time coming up to my normal standards. But I’ll guess that comes a bit with experience as well… 
After the comp in Tenerife I got some nice training sessions and started to land 360s. I got some footage so I’m editing the next episode in my podcast. 
Atm I’m back home and it’s firing. Tomorrow seems to be a classic day. Hopefully I can get some pictures and video to share with you. 
Keep rippin,
Mac

Tenerife pt.1 and Pozo sum up

Hi!
 
Well, Pozo didn’t really go as I had hoped for but I still had a great time with my friends and got some freesailing in as well. I even got the opportunity to commentate on the PWA live stream together with Ben Proffitt. That was an awesome experience and hopefully I’ll get to do some more of it, as I liked it a lot!
 
Now I’m in Tenerife, preparing for the upcoming event here. I’m super motivated to sail here and really looking forward to do the trials! Yesterday I was out on 5,3 Blacktip and my 85 ltr Quantum. There were some small waves breaking and I got to know the spot a bit. Hopefully there will be some more wind today. 
 
Stay tuned,
Mac

Pozo pt. 3

Hi!

Two days ago we were able to do three rial heats out of four. I was in heat number two and during our heat it was a bit hard as there were super onshore, really small waves and I was on 5,0 which was very on and off. I had a hard time getting my moves and didn’t reach my normal standards, which was a shame because I have been training hard all year and am feeling good on the water. Well, I’m taking this experience with me for the next event. Now I know what I’m going to do different when the heat doesn’t go as planned in the next comp. And I would like to congratulate all the riders going through the super tough trials!

These last days here in Pozo I’m going to concentrate on training and really enjoy being a part of all this which always has been my big dream!

 
A big thank you to all my sponsors and family for your support, I’m greatful!

Pozo pt. 2

The past days has been windier but there hasn’t been much waves. The comp has started and yesterday there were some waves coming in but not enough to start the trials though. If the waves and wind are the same today we will probably get going. 

Fingers crossed I’ll sail a good heat and hopefully pass the stacked trials. I’m super motivated and will go for it!!

 

All the best,

Mac

Pozo pt.1

Hi!
 
Now I have been in Pozo for two days. It hasn’t been pumping as I hoped for but  yesterday I was out on my new 5,3 Simmer black tip. The new sails are working really good. Sailed them on Maui during the shoot too so knew what to expect. This year I will have the black and blue colour which I think looks sick!
 
It looks like there might be wind tonight and tomorrow, so hopefully I got to train a bit more before the event starts.
 
Keep you posted
Mac
 
Getting my new stuff ready for Pozo!
