What have you learned from this trip? Better surfing, I’m glad, satisfied with my surfing. I’ve learned to keep going, keep doing what I’m doing. Surfing and travelling it’s cool.

What is your impression so far of this place? Really good, a place with such strong opposites, but there are good waves, mellow, cool people. The biggest thing is meeting new people travellers and locals – really positive.
What do you miss most about home? I don’t know, in Finland there is not many things, friends and family. Friends in NZ and the NZ summer
