Ireland

I had such a blast riding in Ireland last week! The Irish wake scene is so strong and full of great people, it is always such a privilege to ride with them!  Big thanks to Carrig Wake, Cable and Wake and Ballyhass lakes for all the good times! And to my wonderful boyfriend for the birthday celebrations :)

Before I left Sweden I had the honor of getting interviewed by Sportpodden, a podcast which puts women within sports in the spotlight. If you feel like listening to some Swedish, check it out here: LINK

Packing time!

Last few days at home! Can’t believe how fast time flies by and on Wednesday I will be heading to Ireland for a week before going to Orlando for the summer. I’ve had a busy schedule meeting my family, my sponsors and actually a lot of reporters. I am stoked that wakeboarding is finally starting to get media exposure here in Sweden as usually media has been focusing only on the “normal” sports like soccer and ice hockey.

As the cream on top, I got selected Rider of the Year by the Swedish Waterski and Wakeboard association! I feel so happy to be supported by the swedish organization even though I am traveling most of the year. It makes me proud to put on my blue and yellow team clothes and represent out tiny country when I am surrounded by the big ones like the US and Australia. So much love to goes out to you guys!!

Now I am working on getting the last few details sorted before my big trip, better get back to work!

Villa Limasan

139299654303542600_resizedRemember my trip to Bali in the start of the year? I went there visiting my friend Gabbe who together with his fiancé and another friend named Fredrik has built a house in Kerobokan, about thirty minutes from Kuta by scooter.139299659369082600_resized

Getting on my flight I had no idea what to expect, knowing Gabbe to be a surf-bum who spent all his free time catching waves and most of his savings on traveling the world searching for new spots I expected shed and would haven been happy if he had running water in his new house. Feel my surprise when I landed and this villa turned out to be one of the most amazing houses I’ve ever stayed in. With fluffy beds, massive bathrooms and the dark blue pool where I started my mornings with a morning swim every day I was blown away. Adding to this that the house was filled with great traveling people who took me to the best surf spots with the balinese surfers shredding and helping me progress on my surfboard as well as kept me laughing so that my abs got sore, I can’t think of any way to have made my trip better.

The nights were spent chilling with a few cold beers and either a BBQ or a take away from the local cooking lady who made the most amazing food (even though, when I first saw her place I was sure I was going to get a bit of asian food poisoning, as her kitchen was not more than a whole in the wall, but it turned out great and to be delicious). Usually we were all sunburned, sore and with big smiles on our faces from surfing all day so to chill in the big couch and watch a movie on the massive projector screen which appears out of nowhere and just adds the coziness of the place. 139299659700055500_resized

In the whole, the vibe of the villa is just what I wanted my Bali experience to be: relaxed, stylish, surfy and loving. THANK YOU SO MUCH Gabbe, Jossi, Fredrik, Camilla, Su, Rico, Wick and so many more for this amazing trip!!

I can’t wait to come back!

Love Carro

Stockholm

Enjoying being home a bit too much :)

Even though I am missing wakeboarding an my toes are freezing everytime I go outside these few weeks with my family are the best! How normal everyday situations (like having breakfast with my brother and nephew) are my favorite at the moment. I’ve also had some time to catch up with the people from Betsafe and my other partners, excited about our plans for the future and I’m starting to get itchy to make it over to Orlando. If everything goes to plan I will be heading over around the 16th-17th of April. Can’t wait to ride again!!

My nephew loves my hair ties ;)

World Cup

Wow what an amazing contest! Every world cup truely is spectacular but the one in Mandurah must be my favorite one. After training in Singapore for 10 days I felt more than ready to head down to meet my friends and the rest of the competitors. I don’t think  the line-up has ever been quite this impressive with 11 of the best riders in the world, and myself ;)

I started off a bit rocky with crashing twice in my semi finals and therefore ended up in the LCQ, the Last Chance Qualifying. In the second round I was up agains the very talented Larisa Morales from Mexico, Megan Barker from the UK and Chloe Mills from Australia. Luckily I was first off the dock and didn’t have to deal with my competition nerves of watching the others ride before me. This turned out to be a good thing as I managed to stick my pass and was so excited to make it into the finals which consisted of Amber Wing AUS, Bec Gange AUS, Melissa Marquart USA, Raimi Merritt USA and Nicola Butler USA.

The conditions in Mandurah are always a bit rough with both wind, waves and sometimes even dolphins in the course! (well I guess the dolphins don’t really make the condidions worse but they are incredibly cool!). I was second off the dock and after watching my friend Nicola go out and kill it, I was ready to go.

My first pass went according to plan and I managed to stick one of my high enders, a whirly bird which is a backflip with a full twist.  Then on the second pass my nerves or the wind or something got to me and I took an unfortunate fall on a Raley and therefore missed most of my second pass but I still managed to get a last spin in as a wild card trick, a toeside 540.

Watching the rest of the ladies throw down was good, even though the conditions made everyone struggle a little. In the end Raimi Merritt stuck an impressive S-bend and ended up grabbing the gold medal tightly followed by Nicola Butler in second. I was over the moon when I realized that I got the third spot being the odd one out as the rider from Sweden.

It’s always so great being around these amazing pro women who motivates the crap out of me by always stepping it up.  The level in female wakeboarding is incredible right now and I am so thrilled to watch it improve every day.

A big thank you to all my sponsors, family and boyfriend for helping me get another podium. And thanks to all the organizers for putting on another great event!

I cant wait to come back next year!
