Tony Hawk Grand Jam in Sweden

The first time I met Tony Hawk was at the Swedish Summer Camp in 1985. Already then he was one of the best skateboarders in the world. But noone would had beleived back then that a skateboarder would be one of the most famous athletes in the USA. But that is what some surveys say; that Tony today is one of the most known. Truly amazing!

Being the announcer and doing a demo at the Tony Hawk Grand Jam in Linköping, Sweden.

After the Summer Camp (where we one rainy day played basketball and I hurt Tony's foot, and who knows, I could had stopped his career right then...) we met at various contest in the 1980's and early 1990 when contests usually consisted of all different skateboarding disciplines.

Back in 1750

If it wasn't for the electric lamp, this photo could like I was travelling back in time, to 1750. It is actually during a break from a movie I recently shot called Svartmunkarnas Krönika - Codex Dei. An adventure set in 1750, where I have one of the lead roles. It was lots of running and jumping as I was being chased. Enjoyed every second!

If they had computers back in 1750 it could have looked like this.
