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.

The parks actually produce waves that rival the quality of your local home break. The feedback from each family member can help you know what Bing to ride at a wave park near you.
