Alaska. I’ve been eyeing that stretch of land for a couple of years now and I would love to go on a boat and explore the coastline with a couple of buddies. I also have to say that both Iceland and Lofoten are still like dream destinations to me, although I’ve spent quite some time in both. The countless fjords and points make for some truly amazing surf and the scenery is second to none.
What means „traveling“ to you?
The act of stepping outside your doorstep. I’ve had some of my finest travelling experiences close to home, so to me it’s all about just getting out there. Do things you’ve never done before, go places you’ve never seen and meet people that may last you a lifetime. It’s about creating memories and good times along the way.
Best experience while traveling:
I’ve had two designated surf trips to Iceland and both have created career changing moments and photos. Last time I was there we found this stretch of land in a remote fjord on Google Maps, drove 7 hours through a blizzard in the middle of the night and woke up to a perfectly sized breaking wave. We know that it has been surfed a lot before, but finding it on our own and scoring it so good was just left us breathless.
Plans for the future:
Summer is around the corner, which means a warm water getaway. There seems to be a lot of small projects coming up in the fall, but we’ve also been working on a mission on the other side of the world with a bunch of buddies for 2 years now. That being said, the Lofoten Islands offer so much in terms of landscapes, hikes and surf, so I try to stay here as much as I can to get all the good swells and weather.
