..... - thing is that us Norwegians have a thing with hype and fashion. We tend to hype things out of proportion, whatever fashion infuences get us from abroad well blow up. Same with surfing, the problem is that surfing and being on the surf hype is two different things. Combine this with a ragged coastline with very few surfable beaches, you have a crowd issue. but a very special norwegian one where most in the water have no clue but they dress the part. The few people surfing many years before the big hype are still there to quietly catch some waves, no scene, no stickers, no heyho I'm a surfer and the whole world should know. Just wetsuit board and go out in hailstorm and subzero degrees. Come summer hype sets in yet again. Is it really hard to understand the frustration of having your beach littered with everything and having to take the blame?

norwegians - well, that's norway for you. sounds quite tipical norwegian. making up a problem where there is non, like crowded waves. localism comes in quite handy for most of them, as they are the rudest unfriendliest, least laid back bunch by nature. so they can mask it behind something they think is cool...dickheads. and with all the oilmoney they have they can afford to travel to whatever surfspots in the world and to the freeride resorts in the alps and expect there to be welcomed with open arms and treated like they godamn own the place while they behave like a bunch of morons. sorry got carried away a bit. just a bit frustrating sometimes. glad there are so many other nationalities living here. tip: stick to the swedes in norway. they are the better scandinavians. and cheers to the exceptions from the rules. also met a handfull of really cool norwegians.

As if! - to my utterly suprise, the surfers around the anles/molde area are quite solid and tuned in on their waves, not letting any stranger get a piece of the action. Havent had any bad experiences though but I've heard of people getting shits from the locals for leaving garbage on the beach, putting surfbrand stickers on every roadsign, being rude to local farmers and not respecting general surf rules (specially those aplying for visiting surfers) That sucks! and no wonder their protective of their spot when mayority of visitors screw up their easygoing rep with the nonsurfing community living there. Ive done plenty surf travelling and this is very common, but I get treated like any other shithead visitor just cuz every other visitor is a shithead. And without realising it themselfes their the pricks, not the locals, theire just fed up with urban surferwannabees making everybody think that all surfers, locals included, litter the beach and being dickheads to whoever like ferrycrew, girl in local shop or whatever.... get a fakken grip or stay out people, and dont blame the locals, theire the ones cleaning up your poo!
