We got upgraded to what is nominated to the world’s best business class. When we were going to board the plane the steward accidentally deleted Petters ticket to make the upgrade, it just disappeared and they couldn’t add it again. 10 guys were working on getting us on the plane and nothing seemed to solve the issue. The gates cloesd and we tought we were screwed but they finally got us tickets and reopened the gates and told us to run for it. And we made it. Puh! Probably the worst check in ever, but the best flight experience ever made up for it, totally.
Amazing winelist and amazing food. We never wanted to land!!
I didn’t like port wine but this one from 1973 got me into it again. A-MAZING.
Linn got the to sit on 1A, which apparently is something to be stoked about. First on first off.
To finish here’s a little instagram video. We arrived in the sunrise to nice 6ft waves, slight offshore wind, 30 degrees in water and air. I was first in the lineup as well. Can’t really describe how nice it is.

Here’s a random bunch of images from our last week in Sweden. Me and Nick went storm chasing and surfed pretty much every day for a week. We had so much wind pushing the north sea into our small see that our water levels raised by 1.5 meters for a 24 hours period, and our coastline totally changed, probably forever. Waves reached up to 7 meters out sea. All the waves that usually works didn’t, instead new places appeared. Some of them with only us in the lineup.
As you are reading this we are on our way to Sri Lanka. We’ll have warm nice waves every day. But this last week in Sweden was so magical, surf wise, I think we’ll even look back to it from the warm waves down south.. I will at least! /Petter

The all new swimming pool in Båstad.
The storm brought snow.
Two thrids of the woods where we live blew down in the wind.

Tacosen är på väg från fredagsmyset till gatan, som den bör. Vi provade Tacolito som är den senaste tequerian i Malmö, ett rejält steg närmare en riktig tacos! Vi har ju haft förmånen att resa genom både södra Californien (där TexMex är riktigt stort) samt längs med hela Mexicos västkust där fishtacos är av en annan värld. Tacos som är så långt ifrån den svenska Santa Maria tacosen en kan komma. Det är inga skålar med massa tillbehör, det är chilli, det är koriander och det är mjuka bröd av majsmjöl.
TexMex:en har kommit till Sverige för att stanna.
Tacolito på Östergatan i Malmö är en av de första taqeriorna här. Med ekologiskt kött från deras egna gård på Söderåsen och tillbehör på riktigt är deras tacos riktigt bra. Saknas fishtacos vilken är vår favorit men det finns en vegetarisk böntacos som är grym.
Samtidigt öppnar det flera andra taqerior i Malmö och en av dem kommer definitivt bli en rikstäckande kedja. Frågan är vilken?
The TexMex is on it’s way trough Sweden. We tried this new place Tacolito in Malmö which was really nice! They don’t have fish tacos, but they have really nice beef and bean tacos. There’s a few more taquerias opening up in Malmö simultaneously so it’s going to interesting to see where this trend goes.

I love flying. Not just being in the air. I love the whole thing. Even security control (well, maybe not in USA) and the waiting, I love the waiting. Is that weird?
I love it because I’m on my way somewhere and all I got is my passport, a piece of paper and my hand bag. If I have forgot something, I can’t go and get it because it’s to late for that. When I’m checked in I’m just waiting and thinking. Together with some good music. THANK you for all your music tips, they made the perfect playlist. If you got Spotify you can check it out here.
Got the opportunity to fly business for the first time. It was… Amazing!
Woke up rested to NYC.
On our way home I got to sit in cockpit (!!). A minor dream coming true. I wanted to be a pilot as a kid. It was way cooler than I ever could imagine.
So long Manhattan!
Thank you for a great trip Wenche!

Got an email the other day from Angelica who wondered if she could link to us on her blog Surfsyster. Off course! I really appreciate when you email us and we do our best to answer all of them. You’re all the reason we keep on sharing bits and pieces from our life on this blog.
On her site I found a link to Mushburger. Mushburger is a hub for surf blogs, surf instagrams and surf tweets. Found some of my favorite blogs but also many new ones that I’d never would have found. Stoked and proud to be featured among their favorites together with so many awesome blogs! Thank you!

Got the opportunity to join my friend Wenche for a stop over in New York. Wenche works as a stewardess for SAS and we had some really fun hours in the big apple.
We had dinner at Spice Market in Meatpacking District. After some really good food we enjoyed the city that never sleeps.
We stayed on the other side of the Hudson, the jersey side. When Petter and I was here last time we stayed on the middle of Wall Street. Now we had the views over the skyline instead of living in the middle of it.
We went to Saturday surf in the hope to find a single fin for my longboard that I could bring to Sri Lanka. It’s kind of hard to find surf supply on the little island. So was it on manhattan, didn’t have time to search though.
Got some more pics to come. When I’m writing this I’m in Stavanger, Norway at my mums place. The contrast to the big city is amazing. In 9 days we leave for Sri Lanka.. Woho!
