I have missed blogging, haven’t done it for so long cause of school, taking my drivers license etc etc. Boring but has to be done 🙂
Anyway, I want to thank everyone for still checking up on me to see if I update, so sorry for not.. Until today. Just wanted to make sure you knew I was live and breathing. The project is being marked in a few weeks, exciting, and I’m graduating in 94 days! weho. And after that I will go to Portugal to work at the surfshool for more than 4 months it seems now! Couldnt. Be. More. Excited.
I will get to surf more and meet so many great people, both visiting the camp and people who live there! Stoked!
for me surfing is the absolute best way of having fun, relaxing, being in the nature and at the same time working with your body – without thinking of it, cause it’s so much fun 🙂 that’s why I miss it like CRAZY all the time when I’m not there… I can offer you at the moment a discount so YOU can go surfing also! simply use my discount code LAP126, for the destinations that lapoint offer to Morocco, Portugal, Costa Rica, Bali etc.., and you get up to 500 SEK off the price (read more on their website to find out for which places it’s 500 or 300 discount, or contact me!) YEEY!
during my stay in Morocco, and also when I prepared myself to go there, I’ve come up with my 3 most important tips for you:
– attitude. to try and always stay positive, relaxed, focused and happy when you’re out in the water. my instructor always tells me how important it is and this time i believe i finally lived up to it, at least most of the time… with good attitude you will catch so many more waves than if you get frustrated and angry, trust me, I know by own experiences… and besides, you know why you do it – cause you love it – so enjoy it!
– physical training during prep-time (a lot with the arms, core and practicing on technique, like the pop-up!). that will for sure help you a lot!
– try to understand the ocean. count the sets, see which waves will break where, or close-out, if it will be windy or not and where the currents are. i now know a lot more about reading understanding the ocean, which helps me a lot. it is important for you to be able to catch the right waves – and therefore of course you will improve faster than if you don’t know which waves will break or not.
a bit cheesy maybe but I want to say thank you to so many that have been a big help for me. first of all of course to my mom and my family! and to lapoint for helping me out with the trip. also thank you to two instructors at my gym, one who’s a surfer and gave me some great surf-excersises and another guy who helped me a lot too! and also of course to my teacher at my school for helping me out. and to Surfsverige for linking to my blog on their awesome website for surfers!
being in morocco – thanks to the instructors working at, and together, with lapoint, and to some awesome people and surfers i met there! i hope i’ll meet everyone again!
Haha happy face! Me and one of the instructors in Taghazout.
