Here’s what I’ve done today, or well, both of us have actually made all of the things beneth, but Linns has doen a great job documenting it so I’m sharing it!
Started off to try and do some yoga by ourselfes, and we are so stoked that we have found the yoga. Really great to combine with surfing and travelling and just everything.
Our room might not the most pictureqse yoga location, where we acutally train yoga looks way better.
Went in to get the daily dose of waves.
Decided to cut my hair since it’s a pain in the ass, a good sign that it’s time.
Linn started off cutting, but it but no one really knew what or how to do.
So I did most of it by myself instead.
We went out with our new found old friends in the rain. Lucky to be in a country where a taxi, or well, a tuktuk, is half a dollar within the town.
Everybody squezzed in one three-wheeler, and everyone looking totally wasted after 3 beers.
The Sri Lankan version of Nachos with guacamole, Papadams with guacamole-cream! Pretty good.
Curries all over the table for 300 rupies each, that´s 15SEK or 2USD each.
They are tough with alcohol licenses to the restaurants on Sri Lanka, and you can’t have beer at our favourite curry place, so ofc we had to go to a german beer shack for more.
Another day in paradise!

I love that we brought Linn’s longboard here as well. It’s perfect for those small days when the italian shortboard mafia, the british shortboard mafia and the rude local shortboarders fight for the set wave which is half a fot bigger than the ones you we can catch with her longboard.
We just catch a few each, change from rolls of surfing or shooting the other, and catch a few more.

Both of us are so surfed and yoga:ed out you can get. So today has been one of those lazydays, even though both of us has surfed and done yoga today as well…
We have gotten in to a nice routine here in Hikkaduwa. One of the daily tasks is breakfast at Sunbeach Hotel which is like the only descent beachfront hotel / restaurant in central Hikkaduwa. And it’s not more expensive to eat there! So we are loving the sandwiches, english breakfasts and espressos more than ever with the surf right in front.
I went out for a session at the point, Linn could take photos of me without moving an inch from her sunbed at Sunbeach. Even when i was going left!
Linn beeing LAAAZY.
Place next door. Heavens gate, hell yeah! #lovingtheads
Linn went out at the reef just right in front of the hotel. Trying to pull into a barrel, are you?!
She surfed all the way into the beach and made a “Linn jump” into the sand.
This puppy has become our best friend at Sunbeach Hotel. He’s not really taken care of, can you imagine? Or well he is, but not by a single family but by tourists like us that let go and share their food, how can you not.
I got back. Did some instagramming, with wifi right from my sunbed! instagram: @pettertoremalm
Spending hours with this view.
While laying around doing very little a couple walked up to us and said, “HEY Petter & Linn!” It was Uli & Johannes!! We met 4 years ago in J-Bay, South Africa where we stayed ata amazing Ubuntu hostel, surfed, ate brai and sundowners every night. So we hanged out during the evening and had a few beers to talk through everything that can happen in 4 years. Best thing with travvelling – meeting people. Most awesome thing with this blog – keeping in thouch with them.

Today has been a good day. I’ve gotten a lot of work done, surfed for three hours and after the yoga class a girl said I had “yoga glow”. Yoga is such a new thing to me and I’m struggeling with all the new moves, so it was fun to hear. Small things we just say to each other can light up ones whole day. We should really be more generous with throwing compliments at each other. .

This was my last session in 2012. Clean slightly barreling waves that I surfed laughing and having fun with a few locals. A good end and a great start of the new year!

We have been eating breakfast at this hotel which the British pretty much have colonized just as they colonized Sri Lanka back in the days. It’s a pretty fun scene to watch. Today the british boy crew rented twinfin NSP’s (don’t ask my why they don’t rent out boards with 3 fins here) and went to try their luck in the waves with their wifes standing on a row in the water each one taking photos of the guys doing their thing. Can you imagine we had some good laughs on the beach?!
Ps. Just to clarify, we don’t intend to harass the guys by making this post. As a surfer the most important thing is having fun. By laughing at each other and ourselves making both fun fails and good waves we have loads of fun from our first wave to surfing for the title like the pros in the world tour.
