Jakob Wilhelmson hooked me up with a brand new Lib-Tech TRS and next years GNU Street bindings.


Haven't got a chance to try them yet, but hopefully I will take them for a ride tomorrow.

Clip Of The Week - Wiberg & Håkan

Here come's the latest Clip Of The Week.

From the same session as last weeks clip. But this time with Viktor Wiberg and Håkan Andersson.

You can easily say that Håkan eats a big pile of dirt.

Slam of the year?

One more with Hampus

As you can see in the video, it's pretty tight between the rail and the lamppost. Just as Kire if you don´t belive me.

He can assure you that it's tight. And that it hurts when you collide with it.

Maybe a coming clip of the week..?
You'll never know..

Piststilen by Rip Curl

They've just released a teaser for the upcoming 3star TTR event Piststilen by Rip Curl that will take place in Ramundberget this spring.
I've also heard that it's going to be a shitload of pricemoney for the event. Dope!


Will definitely try to be there when the shit goes down.


Nice track

Here's a nice track from Mayer Hawthorne.

Nice mellow video with some familiar faces.
I especially likes the guy with the guitar who's making the closing apperance in the Ducksjen Movie aswell.

Check it oooout!

BC Kicker

Today we finally decided to head off to Tegefjäll/Duved to look for some backcountry spots.
Close to the skilift we found a halfbuilt kicker that we didn't quite know if we could claim or not.
After a bunch off calls to different riders in the area trying to find out who might have start to build it, we decided to go for it.

So either thank you to some vacationdudes, or sorry to some other riders who was planning to hit it..
Here´s some pics.

Setting up
Pretty decent BC Kicker, according to me...

Maskinen Live at Bygget Tonight!

By the way.
Swedish rap/electro/baile funk duo Maskinen performing at Bygget in Åre tonight.

To get in the right mode, check this track out from their album Boys ll Men

Åre spotsearchin

Today the weather was supergray and boring down in the village, but when we came up to the top, the weather was pretty sweet.

We cruised around looking for something to hit, and we finally found a natural hip in Tväråvalvet that we started to hit.
After a while, Tobbe Karlsson and Chris Sörman came by and threw down some flips. Then we tried to hit a small step upjump.

The speed was kind off slow, but that didn't stop two skiers that came by to give it a try. One landed short and bounced back, and the other guy slamed in the kicker and landed with his head first in to the wall.

SOO FUNNY! Keep your eyes open for the shots in a coming Clip of The Week.

Managed to get a short timelapse while waiting for the other riders to join.
Spotsearchin. Most of the pow is gone now. So you have to look twice as hard to find fresh spots!

Big ups to Micke Sjöberg for this video!

Sunwing Åre


Yesterday  we decided to hit the classical Tott-Rail. Or as it's also called; The Sunwing Rail.

Wasn't superstoked to film that spot since the rail is kinda sketchy and steep and I was skeptical that any tricks we're about to go down.

But when the session was over all of the riders had got some shots. Fresh!

My mobilecamera aren't that great to set the whitebalance.

Åre Backcountry

Today We've had another bangin day.

The day started off great in Bräcke, but around 11 o clock the classical bad weather hit the whole lower zone
Then we decided to head up on the mountain to see if we could find something interresting to shoot.

Got at least one banger from Kire I would claim. Really smooth spot, but a little bit sketchy since the avalanche risk are pretty high.

Here's some pics:
On our way to the spot
Kire getting ready for takeoff
Jon Olsson on a snowboard
Chrille P smoothing out on the way down
Passed by the biggest avalanche I have ever seen.. HUGE!
Epic scenery

Åre is so hot right now!

Åre

I'm currently hangin out in Åre.

Övik Shredding

These last couple of days I've just been hangin out at home in Övik.
But on monday I got visit from the Random Bastards Crew and we hit up two spots here on my home field.

Did the classical Down Flat Down at Parkskolan and then a long wodden downrail the other night.
Setting up the spot, look at the "bush" to the left. What are they feeding it with!? MASSIVE
Nighttime shredd at the DFD
Dark picture of the downrail. Maybe beacause it's a super secret spot, or maybe because it's taken by a rotten cameraphone!? You'll be the judge!


Some sweet tricks went down but also some heavy ass slammin!
Might be a clip of the week, who knows!?

Today I'm heading up to Umeyo one last time to shoot with the same crew + Haze Åhlund. Hopefully could get some bangers there aswell before I'm heading up to Åre..
