Between surfing in Central America and skiing in Oregon, Crazy Karl's got a summer schedule to be envied.


What keeps skiers busy in the summertime? We asked Karl Fostvedt what’s on his program.

IMG_0614This year I managed to come out of the ski season without the tremendous debt I used to enjoy at the end of the winter. After most of the snow melted, I joined some friends on an annual trip to Central America to remember what its like to be really, really bad at a new sport—or in surfing terms, to be a kook!

IMG_0832At the end of June I returned to Mount Hood and was greeted by the lowest snow levels I’ve seen in over a decade of migrating to the glaciated volcano. With the surf bug firmly taking over my decision-making processes, I booked it out to the Oregon coast for some cold-water surfing with Sammy Carlson, Dylan Hood, John Ware and Dylan Ferguson. After a couple weeks of surfing, I started to miss Idaho, so I decided to head back home to edit a project I have been working on with ON3P.
