I’ve heard a lot about Sri Lanka, the beauty of the land, the lovely people and the good surf spots but it took a while to head south east to the country formerly know as Ceylon. Mid December we jumped on an Aeroflot plane towards Moscow, after a very interesting 5hr stopover it was time to enter another Russian airways plane to head to Colombo, Sri Lanka. At the airport … Continue reading
In April 2018 I flew for the first time to Costa Rica to check what it’s all about. The beauty and kindness of the people is just amazing and I’ll come back for sure. Here are some impressions from our surf trip…
Summer is just over here in Europe, for me it’s finally time to post some pics from the last surf trip. I always travel so far to explore beautiful countries and oceans, but we got some epic stuff here as well. So on the last trip we ended up in Hossegor, France at the atlantic coastline. Hossegor is also known for Europe’s surf capital. Check out the pics and you … Continue reading

The gap between the honeymoon tourists and … Continue reading
The surf world is going nuts. Just a few days after the shark attack on Mick Fanning at the J-Bay open in South Africa, then Island of Tahiti got hit by a XXL swell.
Holiday time in Tahiti. I’m staying at a really nice place on Tahiti iti in the village of Teahupoo. The place is right on the water front and you can hear the thunder of the waves hitting the outer reef.
Today we went to one of the world’s famous waves, Teahupoo. We got a water taxi out to the line up for an hour. It was very impressive how the guys surf or stand up paddle this beast. Some pros like Koa Rothman, Nathan Florence, Cory Lopez, & Owen Wright were out there to get some barrels.
