It’s getting closer. The longest surf trip so far in my life is getting closer, and I’m trying to prepare as much as I can. Except from surfing I also will work as a surf photographer on three different boot camps during this trip. Shoot surfing and also having the benefit of being able to surf every day, makes everything great for the moment. One other thing that’s also really great is that my kids will join me for a almost 10 days on this trip, before they have to go back to school. So much fun surfing with your kids. And as they are growing older you don’t have to look after them as much as you used to. They are turning in to your surfing buddies. They are really nice travelling partners as well, open minded, like to surf, and love to just chill. Last trip I had with my kids was a two week surf trip to Lagos. So nice, would like to do it again next summer.

The photo job is to cover some boot camps at The SurfExperience, starting out with a boot camp for girls. Sam Lamiroy is the surf coach for the boot camps, and a great one as well. Surfing and shooting surfers all day long from early morning until the dark falls. After a week on the boot camp I usually ends up with 10 000 picture that I have to go through an edit the good ones and then send them to the Boot campers. The deal is that they get all the pictures of them surfing. During the day we also (not me) do video recordings of the surfers. In the evening Sam goes through the video material with the boot campers and talk about what they needs to think about etc.
This is Georgie Timson. An awesome and talented surfer from Newqua. I wouldn’t be surprise if we will see her on the WSL-tour in a couple of years.
Annie from Sweden. Every time I surf with here I get amazed about how much better she have become.
Milla from Newqua. OMG lots of laughs when she is around. Except of just trying to improve her surfing she also did a serious try of learning Swedish. She did pretty well actually, with surfing and Swedish.
The group after a long day of surfing. The lines still rolling in in the background as you can see.
Sam Lamiroy He will teach you every thing you need to know about surfing and some things you didn’t know you need to know about surfing
