With a huge snowpack this winter, combined with a cold spring, this summer in Norway has been extraordinary good. It’s been hard to pick which river to get on to because their all been running for the whole summer. Now, in the mid of august, classics like the lower Rauma, Tora, Bøvra Gorge and so on, still hasn’t dropped in due to the amounts of snow that’s left in the mountains. We’re patiently waiting for those to come in, while we’re running other good runs!
I also had the pleasant of having the Bomb Flow crew on a visit this summer and we had a good time driving around in this beautiful country! Check out some shots from random locations through the summer:
My van/house in Norway! I’ve been living in this van for the past three months, making it so easy to get around and camp even on rainy summer days (yes, they exist in Norway). Photo: Gerd Serrasolses
Fred Norquist fullfilling one of his dreams.. Running the Flemming’s drop at the Rauma river at high water!

Me running the coolest rapid in world? THE rapid on the upper Stordalselva. When this river finally had low enough water, we did it so many times! Photo: Jørgen Thoresen

Morten Eilertsen and myself having a little fishing competition while waiting for the ferry at Stranda. Morten usually beats me, but this time I got the biggest fish and he lost his Crocs and had to fish for them instead! Photo: Gerd Serrasolses
We even made it down to Telemark in the mid of July due to the heavy rain! This myself running the S-double drop on the lower Austbygdåi in my “homearea” Telemark! Photo: Evan Garcia
