I should have known it was a sign. When I went to sleep last night there was a sound keeping me awake, turns out that somewhere behind our house, outside my window water is dripping down from the roof on something that makes alot of noise. At first I taught it was a drunk neighbor knocking on a window or something, that's how loud it was. This morning turned out ok and even if the park was abit slushy I got some nice jumps dialled, until i didn't and hurt my arm abit. I took a break before continuing but after that everything just went wrong and now my arm is all messed up again, I feel like someone is trying to tell me that this season is over. I'm so annoyed right now.


Wow they totally changed the outlook of the whole site, took me like 10 mins how to even find the 'new post' button. I actually filmed what I'm about to write about but I can't seem to get my GoPro to record sound properly so just deleted the clip. First off to explain why I haven't blogged. Over a month ago I threw myself to the side just after stomping a jump, trying not to hit some moron having a picnic on the landing. In some freaky way I managed to tare a muscle in my left arm, I asure you that it hurt like crazy. I had some painkillers and used an icepack the rest of the day and it got well in a few days. Some days later I was riding the pipe before work, my arm felt abit weak so I desided to take it easy and not push it too hard. I have no idea of how this happened but I managed to "leave" my legs on the shelf of the backside wall, and ended up falling head first into the pipe. While falling I figured that it's better to use my arms instead of landing on my face, one second later I felt this excruciating pain in my left arm. I could instantly feel that it wasn't a fracture, this was different, in a very bad way. I went to see a doctor who told told me that the muscle in my left arm is torn (if that's the right word to use) and subscribed some muscle relaxers and painkillers. I must say theese pills really take all the pain away, I was totally amazed. However because of this injury I have mostly been riding outside the park since I noticed that whenever I take even a minor fall and use my left arm it hurts like a mofo. This all will change tomorrow. Today was my last day working in Levi this season, the season was abit short for me and I haven't gotten to ride as much as I would have wanted to but it was better than nothing. We were supposed to go ride some pow in Norway the next 3 days but due to some complications the trip got cancelled, so I guess we just have to ride like crazy people the following days. I got my boards waxed, I haven't had a single drop of alcohol in 10 days and I feel great about not having to work here anymore, so tomorrow should be a good day. We will definatly film during the following days, prolly something funny since the weather will most likely suck. Kaarle's edit is still half way since I've been kinda flu'ish and haven't really had the motivation to get it done, but I will, no worries. I've gotten sidetracked about 10 times doing something else while writing this and it's really getting late, gotta wake up early tomorrow to get as many shredding hours as possible.

Really lazy editing!

OK so I got the editing done yesterday and the clip uploaded today. Since my computer isn't the best one for editing I desided not to cut too much or add effects or anything. I'm trying to get the filming more organized which would make editing more efficient.
I'm loosing it more and more at work, 20 more days and it's done. I really seem to be in the wrong line of work, then again I don't see how some people can like it. Then again you could be picking up roadkills from the side of the road for a living.
Tomorrow it's time to see the doc again about my back/neck since it doesn't feel too good from the last big crash(es).
Yesterday we went to see Paleface performing at Hullu Poro Arena (The Crazy Reindeer Arena). Good sounds, alot of friends enjoying the music and dancing like crazy people. The fun thing is that my legs feel like I attended a 2 hour long bodypump session last night, I gotta admit, there was some crazy moves thrown around. It's not completely safe to find yourself on the dancefloor with Ulla, that usually means you wont be leaving until the music stops.
I've become totally hooked on Skrillex, taught I was going to show you this video. Alot of people have prolly seen it already but I think it's really cool.

Time for shredding material, It's abit long and there are some parts that could have been shortened so sorry about that. I will start editing Kaarle's part asap.
There isn't that much to tell about this vid, filmed by Kaarle who did an awesome job on the followcam in the end. Filmed on 18.3 if I remember correctly, I think we had like 2 warm-up runs and then just desided to try getting getting something on tape, I think we did ok. Enjoy and pleeeeeease gimme feedback on, well, anything.
