The place that reminds you what surfing is all about

Casper Steinfath is a Danish surfer, adventure addict and 6X SUP World Champion winner, who recently visited our camp in Norway. Even though he has the opportunity to visit some incredible places all over the world, Hoddvik was really high on his list. By the end of the stay, he said that the bay had reminded him what surfing was all about.

We sat down to have a chat with him about the experience!

What feeling does this place give you?

It feels like stepping into the Lord of the Rings – like a true fairytale. The majestic mountains surrounding the bay make for a very powerful first impression. I’ve been surfing all my life – I’m 28 years old – and this brought back that pure sense of excitement you have when you’re younger. I was feeling ecstatic and couldn’t wait to get my wetsuit on and get out in the water.

Did Hoddevik live up to the expectations?

It not only exceeded my expectations – it absolutely blew my mind! I had some of my best ever Scandinavian surf sessions in Hoddevik and the nearby spots, and to be honest I didn’t expect to score such amazing waves on my trip.

What is the best memory from your stay in the bay?

That must have been from the first morning - walking out on the terrace of the camp with a coffee in my hand watching the sunrise over the mountains, and seeing these peelers – beautiful little waves – rolling in. The whole bay was illuminated by the sun and the view was just spectacular. I wanna go back right now!
