Sven is so excited about it that he’s coming down as well to get a piece of the action.
 
Judging from his stoke level, it’s hard to say who’s more amped to go surfing in Portugal this summer; him or the competition winners.
 
We had a chat with him about riding sideways, surf trips and camp life.
 

Sven is no rookie when it comes to having fun in the sun. Now he’s keen to ride a board with wax on the top deck for a change.
 
Sven, you’ve surfed a bit before, how is it compared to snowboarding?
– There’s a big difference! Although I’m used to riding most types of boards, I’m not getting anything for free in the surf.
Luckily, I love a challenge and I think it’s great fun learning new skills, said Sven.
 
So what are your expectations for the camp life?
– This will be my first stay at a Lapoint surf camp and I’m very excited. I’ve heard your surf trips are legendary, so I’m sure it’s going to be rad!

What do you hope to get out of your surf trip to Portugal?
– I’m going to learn to surf for real! I’ve surfed in places like Chile, New Zealand and Australia before as part of snowboard trips, but this will be my first 100% pure surf trip. I’m so stoked! In-between sessions I want to chill out and get to know some fun-loving people.
 
Speaking of fun-loving people, do you have any words of encouragement to the winners of your Instagram competition?
– This is going to be a LEGENDARY week! SHAKA BRADDAHS!
