MAHALO AKUNA


Oslo has not been my favorite place lately. The local ski resort is closing when I’m back home, and friends and customers has been making my life pretty stressfull. Yesterday I had a mental breakdown. I cried for hours. Stress, no sleep, people always wanting something from me, but will never give anything back. Work…  my body hurts, and I have to take a break before it shuts down. I’m even afraid to check my phone because I don’t want anything to do with people.


It makes me miss the easy island life… found some pictures on my laptop from 2014. When I decided to visit Mike when he still lived in Maui. 


I left my heart in Hawaii, and it’s been the only place I ever found a calmness and relaxed from the first moment I arrived. 


A trip filled with waves, coconuts, hiking, love, beaches and the best food you would ever have.


Hopefully, I will be able to go back soon. Explore… maybe retire there when I’m too old to hike those high mountains filled with snow. The surfing life is the best life.


There are so many places I wanna see, so many things I wanna explore. Travel is the only thinh that keeps me going…

Not sure where the next stop will be.. But I am sure there will be beautiful sunsets.

DISTANT BARRELS IN HAKUBA

Allready miss waking up to the best powder in the world…


It was dumping allmost everyday… beeing not used to these conditions, it took me a couple of days to keep up with the guys.


But everything helps with some yoga and matcha tea in the morning.



The crew: me, Basti, Tommy, Svein, JP, Romain, Neal and Jamie.

YOKOHAMA

While the boys had to work at Interstyle to represent the brand, we went on a little sightseeing tour around Yokohama. 

We saw everything from the tattoo museum and the private collection of Horioshi III to the art museum of Yokohama. Nice weather and good vibes….



The Interstyle was pretty crazy, met a lot of nice people, and it was cool to see all the Yes boards coming out next season.



The last day was spent in Tokyo for my birthday. All I wanted was some sightseeing and a good dinner. We ended up with japanese barneque with a friend of the guys.

Japan has been absolutely amazing, and allthough is good to be back in Norway, I kinda miss the japanese living.

Saw some early Sakuras blooming. I thought I would have to come back in spring to see it…



Japan, I will see you next year for some more snow and good times. Can’t wait! 

YES ON LIFE!
