- Spreading the jam, maintaining websites
One of my greatest wishes is to travel and jam with other freestylers. Unfortunately, I can’t travel due to a tinnitus problem that’s too easily worsened by exposure to sound. I have been unable to travel by car and leave the town I live in since 1988. Can’t travel very far by bike either, and I’m incapacitated for work due to the tinnitus. But I can jam!
Sune Wentzel and Thomas Finborud got me started in 1998 and kept me going with visits, helpful suggestions and inspiring play. Through the local disc sports club, I’m able to add excitement to the scene through visits to local schools and sports clubs, local community programs and local tournaments while I work on my own game.
Stop by Honefoss when in Norway. I’m always up for a jam …and I’m always here!
A junior high school student asked if I was the world champion. 🙂
How I Started
I saw an amazing freestyle picture of Sune in a newspaper and immediately called the Norwegian Frisbee Federation (I hadn’t heard of freestyle yet). I was sent a freestyle video + disc, which turned out to be a huge turning point for me.
Anything with some spins and a cool catch
