Yesterday the last UggaBugga Outlaw was held in Sande, Norway. Since early May the Ugga Crew has held 10 different outlaws at 10 different spots around the eastcoast of Norway, with different types of hills for skills. Between 10-20 competitors show up and it can be between 1-3 girls amongst them. Sande is one of the spots that is most popular for outlaws, because it’s a mellow dh run where it all comes down to tuck and go.
At arrival it was all wet and the people where a bit nervous to go down. We waited a bit until we couldn’t anymore. The cool norwegian winds dried the run up and soon we where hitting the hill for warm up runs. And you really had to warm up, because the wind was merciless and cold to the bone. We didn’t have a tailwind, so you had to hold that tuck to even be in the running. There where both old and new faces, but all of them had rosy cheeks.
We were 3 girls and we placed in the top 8 out of 16 contenders. It was so fun to see Linn Andersson in the finals and placing 3rd. Mina Westli placed 6th and I, 8th. The boys where kind of dumbfounded and happily surprised to find us right behind them and even passing them. But mostly they where stoked and it was a breath of fresh air to see a girl on the podium and more sneaking up on the scoreboard.

I see my life as a canvas that was once white and brand new! But now I’m totally going crazy with it, building layers of memorys and life to it. Living a life creatively is the only way I know. Either if it’s through travelling, books, food, music,learning new things, meeting new people or hanging out with old ones, doing random good deeds, skating the local hill or simply just snapping a photo, drawing sketches or bombing a mural. Never looking to be anybody other than myself, following my gut and heart. Pursuing my passions and dreams, based on my values and personality. Growing with every obstacle that I overcome. Giving myself a chance to happiness, by doing what I love. To give as much as I get, if not even more. To enjoy every experience for what it is, trying not to take anything for granted. To hold my face to the sky and sun, smiling at everything that has come my way and will continue to come. Having faith in what I do and allowing myself to live an extraordinary life.
