Powder getaway, Ål Skiresort!

11 01 2011

Today I realized how lucky I am to be snowboarding for a lifestyle. I woke up when my family went off to work and school, had a quick breakfast and then I drove 10 minutes to my local resort, Svarteberg (Ål Skisenter). This is where I´ve spent my days as a younger kid riding powder and crazy runs in the woods.

The lift was not running, and I was trying to get out of the parking lot (which was a struggle because of all the snow). While driving away, I saw a couple of workers up in the cafe. I decided to ask them whats up.

I put on my boots with heated soles (That´s a winner on days like this), and brought my Nitro Rook board with me. Then they opened the lift only for me and this one lady, and we had the slopes all by ourselves the whole day. Svarteberg got one of the steepest slopes in Norway and I never get bored of powder-riding up here! Thanks a lot for letting me play today.

You don´t need to point this slope to do turns…

First day back on snow

10 01 2011

This weekend I went to Hemsedal. It snowed like crazy, and it was my first day back on snow since the injury. I was so happy to be cruising again. I even did a couple of melon grabs, without feeling any pain!

Yes, it was really cold!

Hung out with some friends from back home, checked in with Gowalla at “Skistua” and had the legendary quesedilla..

Got some nice garms from Nike 6.0 today, thanks a lot!

Thats whats up!

Anyone know a place I can stay in Breckenridge? Please, hit me up.


Working out in Oslo, X-games is coming up shortly!

7 01 2011

This week I´ve been in Oslo, working out and getting some help with my injury, the goal is a quicker than normal recovery! It feels a lot better now, I might actually go riding tomorrow!

Sitting at home  thinking about riding when you can´t, sucks. Can´t wait to get back, learn new tricks and ride X-Games! I just got the invite a week ago, and I jumped through the roof. That was probably the best gift of them all. Slopestyle and Big Air, it´s gonna be a lot of fun.

On norwegian television they just showed a couple of minutes with me and how I’m getting back from the injury, thanks Morten Røkeberg at NRK for a great show!

Hopefully I´ll be able to land this trick when I get back on snow? 😉

Fractured collarbone

Happy new year! I’ve been lazy for a month now and thought I should start blogging again. At Dew Tour I got injured and fractured my collarbone. So here I am, sitting at home doing nothing!


2. Place at the Sweet Rumble in Trysil

28 11 2010

This week has been so good! Staying in a pretty decent hotel with a surfwave and a spa, a huge jump right outside and a crew of homies who was sending it all day. The contest on friday and saturday was pretty hardcore to be honest. For qualies and semis, we got 3 runs, where our two best results counted, and we had to do two different tricks.

I got through to the knockout finals by doing a fs 9 and a bs 12, and a bs 10 and a bs rodeo. We were 8 guys left, and the head to head was about to go down! I got really tough competition form Roger Kleivdal and Sondre Tiller who did bs doublecork 10 and a perfect cab 12. Somehow I went big and landed my bs 12 two times in a row and it sent me to the superfinal up against Torgeir Bergrem.

Me doing bs 1260

I think we were both nervous at the top, and we both knew it could go either way.. We agreed that winner takes it all and buy drinks all night for the loser. I became the lucky loser yesterday hehe. Torgeir won two out of three rounds and he is now the heavyweight champion of Sweet Rumble! Congrats buddy, you killed it.

It was time for the legendary Sweet Rumble party in a lavvo in the woods. I don´t need to say more..

Gotta bring some of these cans for the party..

The jump is massive init bruv?

Good guys equals good times!

Well, now I’m back in Torpo hanging out and getting ready to leave for Air&Style China! The jump looks really good:

Just met my buddy Jørn Henning at home. Getting ready to hit the slopes!

I will put up a video from the contest tomorrow. Later.

Yesterday we were having two sessions which was really good, I did some bs 1260’s, and it felt good.. Here is a couple of photos from yesterday shot by Olav Stubberud

Pleasure Jam at Dachstein

16 11 2010

After being injured a week, I got back on my board this weekend thanks to awesome help from a couple of physio´s. The TTR 4 star event Pleasure Jam went down in Austria and I was there to try and do my best. In the finals I did a cab 5, a doublecork bs 10, and a double bs rodeo. Due to a serious handdrag, I got 5th place. Elias Elhardt won, and my friend Tor Lundstrom from Sweden got 3rd, well done!

Dachstein has a sick railpark and this Elbow rail was awesome! Thanks Kristoffer Hansson for filming.
