One forgets how much of a mission it is to get here… I guess thats a good thing. I left Stockholm on Thursday the 3rd, had charismatic night in London and then met up with the other Fred in NYC. We made a late arrival in San Jose that night and passed out at the […]READ FULL STORY
The original plan was to be away for a month, but life is too good in Costa Rica, so I stayed for an extra 2 weeks to surf myself out completely. Its been my second home for the past 11 years and after spending the better part of a year away, returning really made me understand why […]READ FULL STORY
I hadn’t been back to Indo for 2 years… For any surfer, Indonesia has a magnetic effect. Whether it be due to the mesmerising video sections, picturesque images in magazines, magical memories from previous encounters with the mechanical almost man made reef set ups that bless the corners of almost every bay… The list of […]READ FULL STORY
It’s funny how sometimes it all just falls into place. I’ve been here just shy of a month and it’s been eventful… It began with literally landing into tubes; my first wave is still the best since I got here, I’ve spent quality times with loved ones, we’ve had old friends visit from all over […]READ FULL STORY
It took a 6m swell for this wave to break but I finally got to experience it for 2 hours before she vanished in true Baltic fashion… Due to the kind nature of the wave, its beauty, its mysteriousness, its lure, it’s intensity, the presence I feel in the lineup, and the few rocks that stick […]READ FULL STORY
That time you get more than what you prepare for. It was hard to gauge the size from the ski, but my suspicions of being under-gunned were confirmed once I’d bobbed out to the lineup. I also realised that this wave is one of the more incredible ones I’ve ever seen in Scandinavia and I […]READ FULL STORY

The time has finally come… I just bought myself a beast of a machine and it’s name is Mjölnir. 200 horse power all in the name of the exploration of our magical coastline. The many Islands & distant slabs in the Baltic which I’ve previously only dreamt of visiting will now become reality. So will […]READ FULL STORY
We left Stockholm at around 11pm… What excited me the most was that if everything went to plan, we’d arrive at 01.30am and potentially be paddling out at 03.00am… Getting tubed at 3.05am with the sunrise and the peak of the swell. It’s magical having enough light to surf so early in the day. This session marked the commence […]READ FULL STORY
Full story coming soon. For now here’s one of Jeff’s collages from the other day at Klon.READ FULL STORY
I’ve spent the past 10 years leaving home in mid Decemeber and returning to the north again in April… My time has been spent training for both contests and for heavier surf. Nothing gigantic but my favourite part of surfing and of life is getting tubed… Spending a second or five or more in the […]READ FULL STORY
I woke up cold… and the thought of surfing didn’t warm me up. Brother Manne turned up in the white liner and we made for Torö… Even though the snow’s been melting and spring is somewhat in the air, the water is at its coldest. I’m usually quite numb to the cold and have no problem getting […]READ FULL STORY
Coming from Sweden and being a surfer aren’t two things regularly intertwined. Especially on a professional level…
I was introduced to waveriding at a time when the Swedish surf team was compared to the Jamaican bobsled team… Since my first wave in Sweden aged 13, I have navigated my way to making surfing my life.
After ten years of competing, I finally realised that surfing was so much more to me than winning and losing. So three years ago, I left the competitive scene and decided to embark on a childhood dream of finding world class waves along the Swedish/Scandinavian coastlines; with the Baltic being my main focus.
This is where I will be telling my story.
