Vanlife, surfculture and surfing in Sweden and Denmark? This short movie is a music documentary about a lifestyle with a van. In the end of June this year I moved out of the small house I lived in, stored my stuff except for the most essential things like my surfboards, skateboards, music and film equipment, clothes, repair kits, camping kitchen, toothbrush and the shaver. The plan was to spend some months in my van on the west coasts of Sweden and Denmark. I wanted to go to beautiful places, meet beautiful people, go surfing and be part of the surf culture in this area.
Vanlife is a very nice way of spending quality time with nature and friends. Since you always bring your home you are very flexible and it is easy to do things in a sponteanous way. You never know who is gonna be your neighbour the next day and it´s a very good way to meet interesting people with interesting life stories. It is also the perfect lifestyle for being present and practice meditation since you never "need" to go anywhere, you are always there, with your home...
I brought with me a project of documenting this lifestyle and make a short movie. I brought a camera and the editing program in my laptop. I have also written the music during the summer to give the movie a feeling I like and to make it personal. I recorded the music with my mobile studio which consists of a digital mixer, mic and headphones and the laptop with editing program.
When I write this I am still living in my van, it´s September and I am still enjoying it even though it is more chilly now..
