Back at it!

I have to stop doing this but It just happens and I don´t know why. But I´ll start blogging again now.

This pretty much sums up the trip in Åre. It seemed like the champagne never ended, and when I think about it. It never did!

We stayed one more day after the comp ended, cause easter made it impossible to get flights and train tickets. What to do in Åre on a sunday.... Afterski, heli ride up to the top of the mountain, Chinese downhill with Snowblades, party.

Me, Ted and Russ.... heli blading!

case of beer in the Heli.

Me, Elias, Russ, Jon, Jens and Ted on top of the mountain, minutes before Red Bull Homerun went off. Talking about how we should do the race, we decided Just to have fun and go over the finish line together. As soon as we hear the gunshot It was every man for him self and first man down. It was the most sketchy thing I´ve ever done, I fellt like one of those guys running with the bulls in the street. Obviously with snowblades u don´t have as much controll as u have on regular skis and with 400 ´´bulls´´behind u I was terrified. I ended up on 108th place Witch im really happy with, actually im just happy to be alive. All and all a really fun week in Åre, and im allready looking forward to next year.

Good start, hell of an ending

Not a bad start of the day!

Yesterday we got invited to stay at a hotel and shoot lifestyle there. To be honest, and I think I speek for most of the guys, when they said ''we have internet'' we were all sold. After a week without internet u can get a little.....lost. The place was really cool though, off course this is the only pic I manage to take, but u can kinda get the drift. Rooms hanging from a cliff over a little creek in the middle of nowhere.

On the way back we stoped a couple og times just to look at the breathtaking views this place have to offer.

Fjords, montains, Alex and other shit like that.

Even and Tom on the fery. We really were tourists today.

Then all hell broke loose. We went up to the jump to fine tune it for tomorrow. Turned out the rain and the wind had totally destroyed the jump. So we spent 8 hours rebuilding it. So it better be sunny tomorrow! People are starting to talk about how to kill them selves over her.

5 min sunlight

After 2 hours of sleep we got up at 4 AM in hope to get to see that round bright thing in the sky rise over the mountains.

We made the sunrise, but it was over in a few minutes. We managed to get a couple og test jumps in when the clouds cracked for a few seconds. After one week sitting in the cabin playing cards cause there's no internet we finally got to hit it. That gave us motivation to stick it out a couple of more days! Hopefully get a couple of hours og sun tomorrow, if not, Thuesday and Wedensday is looking better!

This picthure pretty much sums up the last four days. We have a sick feature buildt for us on top of the mountain, with a breathtaking backdrop. If you seen any of the latest Field movies you probably remember the shot's from Stranda! The only problem is the weather, it's been snowing/raining and on top of that it's wiiiindy. The forecast looks terrible for tomorrow but saturday and maybe Sunday looks good.

We got here one day earlier than everbody else so myself, Russ and Laura decided to treat ourself to a nice sushi dinner. Turns out, sushi is kinda hard to make. One thing is that it didn't look good, but it tasted worse!

That's about it for Stranda so far, tomorrow we're building a backflip kicker and we'll try to make Filip do one. Should be good!

Mega Park day 3

Little edit from yesterday. Russ has most of the shot´s since Laura decided not to film me all day. thanks. At the end you can see my first try on a dub 9, didn´t really work out as i thought. I did my first ever true dub though. We were joking around and called it the Wombat flip eventhough it's just a fliped dub 10 and someone probably has done it before. Dosen't really matter cause it's the most sketchy thing I've ever done and hopefully I will never do it again!

We were avliving on the top jump yesterday evening. We just finished shaping the jump when my binding got ripped off on a butter 3! Had to sit that one out....

Hovden Shoot..... sort of

So we went to Hovden for a shoot on a hip. Turned out the hip sucked so we ended up shredding the park, witch was small but really fun. Of course Russ´s camera died on my third lap, but here´s a little edit from what we got.

Not my proudest moments, but I thought I´ll show you how much of a shitshow I can be!

To windy for Jumping

For these last 4 days me and Russ has been so stoked to just go ski without no preasure from upcoming competitions. We woken up to a sunny bluebird sky every day, but behind that perfect picture thru my bedroom window I wake up to every morning a horrific wind is hiding. It´s been so windy that it pretty much has been impossible to ski.
We did haik a rail for like 15 minutes yesterday though, and russ made this edit. I stole it from www.russhenshaw.com

Season, part ||

Russ, laura, Alex, Ole and Lasse (behind the camera) Made a sweet taco/burito dinner right before we went to the movies. FYI. We watched "I am nr 4". Sick movie, at least I thought so.

Last week I was in Tignes, France for Euro X. I took it easy since it was only 3 and a half week after my knee surgery. The Weather was not cooparating, so we got little to no practice on the jumps. I ended up in 12th place. Im completely fine with that. It's kinda weird for me to say that, but I didn't go down there to win, I just wanted to ski and meet all the guys again. So it's all good, and I landed my first X-games run ever:) it only took me 5 tries.

My season is devided into 2 parts. The first part is comps comps comps. The second part is shoothing, witch can be hectic but you can do things in your own tempo. That's exactly what I need right now.

That was a little update of my life. Now we are all hanging out at my place, hopefully the wind that's been destroying our skiing settles down.

Doctor was right

There's something about waking up early to a perfect bluebird day and driving to the hill that I really love. This is me, Lasse and Gabs doing just that!

Today, or i guess yesterday here in Norway. It's exactly 3 weeks and one day since my operation and I was able to ski pretty hard today. I was afraid landing forward and backseat would be a problem but turns out it isn't. I feel something sometimes, not pain, just a feeling in my knee that reminds me that im hurt. This is enough for me to put the breaks on and not ski 100%.
After a little early morning shred tomorrow I hop on a plane to Tignes tomorrow for Euro X. Im gonna ski, but since my knee is.... Whatever it is, and I don't really have the big tricks diealed right now. Im Going down there just to have fun and put together a chill run. Hopefully the first run I land at the X-games! This will be my fourth X-games apearance and im yet to land a run!!!!!

Remember this guy? Espen Linnerud is back in biz. Look out for his banger comeback part in the new fieldprod movie dropping this fall. Going to be sick!!!

Skiing again

Thursday I had my first day back on skis after my operation. Just started out with some turns and straight airs over the smallest jumps but I get to go out in the snow and breathe some fresh air. The knee isen't a 100 % but after all it's only two weeks since the operation.

This weekend I went to Kongsberg to judge a big air competition. This brought back some good memories cause I won this very comp 6-7 years ago where I won an invite to Red Bull big air in Åre.

Judging isen't easy. It's very hard to put score's on every trick and try to keep it consistent. We were three judges. After the competition I was looking over the scoreboard, and the judging was terrible. The guys said that my judging was pretty much on point so that's good. But a lot of guys got screwed pretty bad. One example is Alex Aurdal who did he's best dub 10 ever. Pretty much perfect. I gave him a 94, the headjudge gave him a 86 or something and the third judge gave him a 76.

At the end it was one guy on top, and his name is Thomas Dølplads. i think it's he's fifth time winning this comp in a row. He skied really well!

What a pimp!

Who the fuck wanna hire G-man after that ??

tirsdag 22. februar 2011

Haha JOSS!

Found this vid on www.colbyjameswest.com
When I went up to Åre for JOSS last year I had a broken collar bone. obviously I couldn´t ski and neither did colby, so this video brought back a lot of good memories from pretty much the funiest week of my life. It´s mainly Jon and Colby´s video but I know that if my skiing goes to shit I have something to fall back on. Bartending....... I rather ski though.

surgery - success

Still kicking everybodys ass in ping pong. even on crutches!

I had surgery two days ago. I decided to take care of my MCL now, eventhough I could ski, jump and do tricks I couldn´t ski 100% and what´s the point of that?
The surgery went really well. First of all I haven´t done any painkillers since the operation, no pain at all. Only two days after the surgery Im walking fine without my crutches.
The Doctor said I could ski after two weeks, of course when he says ski he dosen´t mean going off a 20 meter long jump doing all kind of spins and flips. But im posetive this won´t take a lot of time, im aiming for Euro X witch is a little under a month away. Sounds a little to good to be true, but let´s cross our fingers and hope for the best.

Tomorrow im going to Oslo for an exciting meeting. Can´t tell u more at this point, but im excited.

torsdag 13. januar 2011


Im currently sitting in the waiting room at the hospital to get an MRI of my knee. Im pretty sure I have a tare in my MCL. Just have to figure out exactly whats wrong, so I can get it treated.

Happy new year. Im completely aware that I haven't Posted anything since the 12. Of december. This is a mix of lazyness and not having internett. I may have told u this or maybe not, but I bought a house. Ever since I got back before christmas I have been moving in and working on getting it looking pimp as. So Yeah, that have been my life the last month. Im gonna keep u updated about my knee, and maybe I post some photos of my new house.
