The Gothenburg Effect

Niklas Stråhlén features in some thick and fast freestyle action from the shores of s**t Bay in Sweden.

Following his PWA debut at the Podersdorf Freestyle World Cup in 2008, Niklas Stråhlén has gradually been gaining a reputation as one of freestyle’s up and coming stars.

Hailing from Sweden, the rookie has been spending time focusing on training and improving his skills for 2009, where he’ll be competing in national, European and PWA freestyle events.

After spending much of the winter in Jericoacoa, Stråhlén is now back in the cooler climbs of his homeland. Unphased by the dramatic temperature drop, he’s just released a short movie clip of a recent session at his home spot in Gothenburg.

We don’t know the origins of the name S**t Bay, but it doesn’t seem to distract Mr. Stråhlén from throwing down some solid moves.
