Swedish Surfing Championship & Dharma Party

November 14, 2012

The Swedish Surfing Championships were held last week in cold and windy conditions (aka. epic in Sweden) at Toro beach outside of Stockholm.  Squid lids off to these hard core and dedicated surfers for standing out in wind and rain to surf and root on their friends.  Amidst the grey skies and dark seas, Swede soul surfer Pontus Hailin tells me that in the quarter-finals, “there were three colorful [Bing] sisters surfing together.”  Looks like a Dharma party! Taking the title for 2012 was Freddie Meadows.  Get a feel for what it’s like to surf in Sweden in the video below courtesy of Nordic Surfers Magazine.  Photos by Mathieu Turries.

Great for beach break barrels, fast crossed up peaks, and points. Check Will Allen out ripping his recently in Southern California. Filmed and edited by Ryan Cannon.

The last issue of SURFER Magazine (sobs) has hit the shelves and basically you may only find a copy somewhere the news is not out of their indefinite pause. A sad day in the surfing community, although there is a diamond of an article in the issue that features our lady in charge, Margaret Calvani and Bing rider Lauren Hill.
