Norwegian Championships 2013

One of the best Norwegian Championships I have ever entered! FUN FUN DAY! Thank you Oslo Vinterpark and Wyller for the world class Halfpipe!

This beauty queen getting a fresh up!
The pipe was awesome! Perfectly shaped and firm but not icy. Just how I like it. I had fun all day and managed to bring out some old stored tricks from my pocket which placed me on first spot and gave me another GOLD medal to bring back home:) 

Happy winner:)

The guys killed it! Fredrik had some of the highest airs and was leading all the way up to finals, but when Roger put down a clean run including his double flip, Fredrik was beaten and placed on second place. Stoked to see the guys push limits and put down a great show.

Proud to be sharing the podium with the one and only Kari on second and my amazing name-sister Lisa on third. Great riding girls!

Another podium


I'm quite impressed with Norway's selection of good parks this year. I'm usually riding Oslo, Tryvann and the amazing half pipe in Wyller. It's always fun and really close to the city! But I checked out Ringkollen last weekend (1,5 hour outside of Oslo) because the Norwegian snowboard federation was organizing a slope style 3star event there, and yes... they can do it too! It's always fun to participate in a competition. It makes me push myself a little extra and its is so fun. The jumps were bigger than expected which let me get some good airtime too! :)

The girls had fun and were pushing each other all day! Good to see that it is growing "behind me", the young ones were ripping and charging. One girl really impressed me, Camilla :) She did a huge backflip to disaster... cause she almost went double. Unfortunately she broke her arm though, but she is a tough girl and one to watch out for in the future. Feel better Camilla, you will be back ripping in no time!!!

The amazing Marte Søderlund rode well all day with steezy frontside boardslides and twicked out  spins which put her on the top of the podium in front of me:) Nora earnd 3rd place with big airs and spins! I was stoked to get to ride Ringkollen park and get another podium in for the season!:)

Warsaw, Roxy shopping.

What a City! Last weekend I went to Warsaw, Poland to do some Roxy shopping!!! What an amazing town. The Old City with the colorful architecture and majestic buildings was a scenery. I can only imagine how it all looks in the spring... I might have to go back a warm and sunny day:)

Warsaw is a major tourist destination and has survived wars throughout the history, but unfortunately 90% of it was destroyed during the world war II, but thanks to its excellent restoration and recovery it is now a lively place, with tourists and locals, and tons of galleries, cafés and restaurants.
Atmospheric alleys, squares, and cosy cafés create a unique sense of history.
So lets hear it for Warsaw!
 
The Palace of Culture looking different every night

...But as I was starting off with... I was on a mission! In Sadyba Best Mall I found it: Boardriders Sadyba store. A huge store filled with Roxy, Quiksilver and DC clothes and other nice stuff :) I met some excellent store employees which did an awesome job with spotting out all the good stuff for me, which led to bags filled with goodies on the way home! Thanks a lot for all the help Boardriders Sadyba, and thanks a lot ROXY for making me look so good;)

Check out some of my photos:

Awesome Roxy watches!

Feels good to compete !

I know most of you probably don't get the whole competitive side of snowboarding, BUT I loove competitions. The nerves, the dealing with pressure, getting one chance (or maybe two), its just the right amount of push I need to progress and have fun! My team manager Lesley described me pretty excaxt on my Roxy profile last year: "Her need to be busy allows Lisa to thrive under pressure, which has led to her being one of the few riders in the world who can excel in both halfpipe and slopestyle contests." Thanks, Lesley. Its so true!

So I went to Varingskollen in Norway this Saturday to enter a Norwegian Slope style 3star event organized by the Norwegian Snowboard association and found myself on the top of the podium at the end of the day. It's always a good feeling to win, but best of all was the feeling of adrenalin going through my body again, and the feeling of still being able to deal with the excitement in my body during the day. I think it's so much fun!!! I love snowboarding:)

Here I am with a proud smile.
















 Having fun with friends! Emilie Evensen (2nd place:) and Elin Bjørkum (cutie;)

 Check back later for some snowboarding action from my local resort.

I welcome you, Mr. President Obama!

Firs of all, Congratulation on the re-election Mr. President. Well deserved!
Any plans on the program yet? A Norway visit maybe? If you come to Norway, Mr. President Obama, I will take care of you and the Obama family's adrenaline kick while visiting OSLO.  I know that you are riding "one foot forward" like me, and that Oslo Winter Park already have snowboards, gear and lift-passes ready for you! Just give me a call when you have landed, I can pick you up at the airport too:) See you.

Haven't you always wondered how to stay sane while injured?? Read about my experiences in the new Coven Magazine 3rd issue ( page 60-61) to find out how I coped with staying home while all my friends went snowboarding during my knee injury.

Lapoint Surf Camp Ericeira


Before I welcome winter completely,  I have to post a few pictures from my summer of action:)
I don't know if you remember that I entered a competition in my local resort this winter and won a surf camp to Portugal?!I really did:) This past July me and my boyfriend Jens-Martin went to Lapoint surf camp in Ericeira for a week. I finally "learned" how to surf. At least I feel a lot safer and know what to look for and ways to cope with the...waves! It was an awesome week of fun! Nice waves every day, enthusiastic coaches, sun and warm weather. The wind was absence, which is quite unreal for Ericeira. Pool at the camp, slack line, mine ramp and a Boardrider Roxy store close by! All you can ask for. So, for all of you that are considering surf camp I can recommend it strongly. Thank you Lapoint for giving me this experience, and thank you Roxy for all the nice summer clothes and my new Roxy wetsuit!

Check out my pictures and get inspired:)

Norwegian Champion:)

The season is pretty much over and summer is getting closer every day, even though it doesn't feel that way when I put on my rubber boots and hoddie to go outside....

I must say that I'm pretty happy with my season after all, reaching my goals and being back on my board feels real good. I was so so happy when I got the message that I could join the World Snowboarding Championships which was hosted in Oslo my home town.  I was not able to qualify through the events going on in 2011 because of my injury, so I was given one of very few Wildcards For me entering that course in Oslo was amazing! It was challenging and hard, but still fun. I just felt so lucky to be able to snowboard again and land a safe run through that course. It really build up my confidence.

The Norwegian Nationals was held in mid March in Oslo/Tryvann and Vierli, but unfortunately the competition in Slopestyle and Big Air got cancelled cause of strong wind at Vierli reasort. To bad, course everything looked real good and I was so excited and ready to charge the course.

Tryvann/Wyller in Oslo on the other hand, had a world class halfpipe ready and waiting for us at the Nationals. I surprised myself by getting back some of my runs and tricks in the Halfpipe and actually won the whole competition. Not a bad feeling to walk away with the Norwegian Champ title 2012 :)

Check out some of my pictures from the Norwegian Championships:  ("stolen" from tacky.no:)
