Weekend - Karl Berglind | WASTED TALENT

We love Malmö.

In fact anyone involved in skateboarding loves Malmö.

None more so than local ripper Karl Berglind.

Despite spending most of his time abroad since dropping out of school to pursue skateboarding two years ago, Karl still finds time to return to his hometown. Whether it’s partnering with Vans to action community work at Kroksbäck, encouraging local kids to pick up skateboarding, or hanging out with his lifelong friends at Stapelbäddsparken – the park that shaped his style, Karl’s roots remain firmly in the Malmö skate scene.

In a rare break from his travels this summer, we spent a weekend with Karl, to gain an insight into the young Swede’s love for his hometown and the terrain that continues to define his skating.

It was time to escape. We were done. Tapped out. A week of festivities during the contest in France with an embarrassingly small amount of surfing had us refocused on what actually matters, so we left for Portugal. The Algarve. We gathered a merry crew: Chippa Wilson, Brendon Gibbens and Noah Collins. We rented a team manager and a van and hit the road. Oh the Algarve! Such warmth, such affordable prices. The Algarve is a dream. It is a west coast to pick up swell and a south coast to shelter you. The early days of the trip were marred by inconsistent swell and wind. Too big for the west coast. Too small for the south. Not to worry. We kill time. We eat. We sunbathe. We drink. We Scroll. We dip into Lagos. Inhibitions are loosened. The swell arrives – a return to normal programming. The west and the south. The west is modor-esq black cliffs in the cloud and the south is novelty beachbreaks with the most marvellous of backdrops in the sun. In true fashion, Portugal delivers and we surf until the very last smudge of light over the Atlantic, and as the inky blackness descends we clink Super Bocks and with weary eyes we reluctantly pack the van. It was time to head north. For some would stay in Portugal. Others would head to France. Others to LA. Others to Japan. Wetsuits still wet on arrival in Shibuya. The Retreat. A Wasted Talent short film, supported by Monster Energy.
