Swedish surfing pioneers: Ake Gylling and Per Torstensson in the 80's

Surfing in Sweden started 30 years go, back in the late 70's, when a group of skateboarders tried the first waves in the west coast of this Scandinavian country.

Per Torstensson, Stisse Bengtsson, Micki Carlsson and Ake Gylling were the first Swedish surfers. They started the mythic Porridge Bay Surf Club, designed a logo and even made T-Shirts to identify themselves.

In the history of surfing in Sweden, these group of blond pioneers got the first uncrowded waves of Grötvik and Sandhamn, the best peaks of the country.

The Swedish Surfing Association manages to form its National Team in 1985. Check out a very interesting interview with Per Torstensson, founder of Surfing in Sweden, at surfsverige.se.
