"I´m not happy with the second place - definitely not - but under the circumstances it was a tight heat and I did not sail as good as usual. Kevin only beat me once, so at least I can feel that if I had sailed the way I know I can sail, I would have had no problems winning. I have been hoping for a double elimination to come back and beat Kevin, but it never took place. What can I say, of course I am not happy with second but it is better than third - in the end. I am glad that we did get a result. Conditions were not as good as they have been in previous years, but that is the way it goes sometimes. Next time I hope it will be better."
"Now that I am married I am not planning to slow down at all. If anything I am going to step up. It is a step up in life to get married. As Maria and I are expecting to become a little girl at the end of the year, this will also going to be a change for sure. I´m not planning on stopping any of my wave sailing activities or my "Search-Project" (
"I'm realy happy with my 5th place in wave competition and I am really sorry that I kicked out my brother Vidar."
"In freestyle competiton it was bad luck for me that we couldn't make a 4 th. round so that I could have gone rid of my 17th place of the second round (I had two 9th. and one 17th. ranks). So I ended up 12th. and not under the top 10 which was my goal."
