After a couple of days with surfing back at our local beach Larkollen, the hunger for better waves needed to be cured. The cure was found for some of us at Lejet in Varberg where saturday june 21st delivered another great day. Tormod, Thomas, Mathias, Runar and my self drove the 450 km to Varberg on friday afternoon and woke up in Varberg saturday morning to sun and wind. In the morning i sailed with my 5,0m2 and after lunch I had to rigg down and use my 4,4m2, the waves where also better during my second session. After totaly 4-4,5 hour on the water I was worn out and had to take the rest of the day off, I was tempted to go for an afternoon session in Apelviken but in the end I decided to save my strength for another day. After all it had been a great day, just check out the pictures.
At last we got a classic north/west day in Varberg, Sweden. Even if it was on a thuesday, many desperate norwegian windsurfers took a day of from work to get a day of perfect conditions in the bay in Treslövslejet. Paul, Runar, Tormod, Håkon, Ole Petter and my self where some of the lucky surfers who drove 860 km for a day of wind, waves and sun. After about four hours out in the waves I was hungry, exhaust and very pleased with my self for taking a day of from work. I was absolutly worth the drive, even if I almost lost one of the front wheels on my car driving home.
Sunday june 8th we finaly got some decent southwest wind and had a great day at Larkollen sailing 5,7m2 and also 5.3m2 in 22 degress water and airtemp close to 30C, what more could we ask for? Maybe a litle bit stronger wind? I heard that some friends who was saling further south on the coast was using smaler sails, but we had a good time at Larkollen and ended it with a great barbeque on the beach after the wind had dropped.
I dropped by one of Oslo's windsurfingshops, Lilleby which is run by my friend Kjell. He had just got a new boom into his shop and I dropped in to check it out. But even if it has been a very long time since i rigged my gear due to the lack of wind I do belive that the boom that I used last time I sailed maybe was a few year newer than this one.

Both my custumboards at 84 & 95 liters are designed by Francisco Goya at the cannery in Haiku on Maui and are absolutly incredible to ride. The 78 liter is a production Goya waveboard and at this size it is one of the best in the market. Has also developed a tast for offpiste snowboarding in lots of powder and crosscountry skiing in the winter pluss mountainbiking in the summer
