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.
This 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!
This year I went with ten friends for two weeks of hunting waves. With no job and hardly any snow left back in the States, I decided to extend my trip, and rented a dirtbike with a surfboard rack for the entire month of June!
At 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.
I can’t wait to finish editing so I can head back to Oregon for more (rock) skiing and surfing!
