Surfin Sweden

Surfin Sweden. Freddie Meadows is one of Sweden’s best surfers. He has competed for Sweden in three WC and one EC. Not bad, coming from a guy who still is to young to legally buy alcohol in Sweden. But despite his success, he is far from a public ”surfing hero”. Few Swedes have seen him surf. Even fewer have talked to him. He spends his winters in surfing paradise Costa Rica, but during summer time it

He spends his winters in surfing paradise Costa Rica, but during summer time it's all about his mom's house in the southern part of Sweden, Skåne. The contrast between the crystal clear water in Costa Rica and the muddy banks in Sweden is big..Freddie Meadows is looking at the waves hitting the beaches of Mölle, Skåne. It's 1pm when the surfing pro is at a secret spot, a place exclusive for him where he doesn't have to be close to other surfers. Yesterday was hard. This afternoon is calmer. Almost too calm, as the wind is a bit wrong. ”I love you wave, I'm sorry that I was drunk yesterday” he shouts over the ocean. And then the hunt for the Perfect Wave continues..
