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.

Name, hometown, and surfboard brand.

Josh Peterson, hometown Virginia Beach (born) Haleiwa (currently living), and my brand is Peterson Surfcraft.

The first Bing I bought was from Bing Surf Shop and it was the Continental model. I think it’s the best noserider in the world and works great for any long, lined up wave. I’ve been riding it for about two years. I also just bought a new Izzy Rider Type II it is amazing! It’s so fast and turns on a dime. This will be the board I ride in surf contests.

At the beginning, it was just an idea, but at the same time, a challenge I had set for myself some time ago. Honestly, I saw it as complicated since it was my first time traveling alone to Europe, and I was curious and nervous because I was literally going to another country. The only thing that reassured me was being able to speak Spanish over there. But, of course, none of this would have been possible without the support of the entire BAPU beachware team who encouraged me and gave me the motivation not to doubt myself and make this a fulfilled goal, we organized various activities while presenting the short film "El Gordo" to raise funds for this trip.
