I remember the first time that I came here, I stepped off the plane and I immediately felt that blanket of warmth and humidity.’ says Yannick Dejager “I’ve been coming here a lot of over the years now and although these days the crowds on some spots are as thick as the tropical air, it’s still one of my favourite places to go to.
This trip was no exception, the food, the waves and the culture mixed in with that magic smell of Indonesia, it will always be hard to beat to leave this option out when planning your next trip.”
“I love this place so much that I decided to move here. Surfing and hanging out with Yannick is always good fun, I was stoked that we were able to shoot the real Bali, the Bali that I love so much.”

With fjords, mountains, amazing surf and snow spots and chance of seeing the northern lights Norway is one of the magical places on earth to take a surf trip.
Everyone always seems to venture south, in search for warmer temperatures. Yet Norway is one of the most beautiful travel experiences I have ever had. In Norway that feeling of being connected and at the same time humbled by the surroundings is so intense. Surfing here just strengthens that feeling. It clarifies the mind.
I feel this place carries a magic and greatness that you can feel in your bones. On top of that there are no crowds and the waves can be amazing.
Travelling in Norway is unique. The coastline we have here is as long as the westcoast of the US and there is so many in’s and out’s, so many fjords. There is unlimited potential for surf exploration here, I think you could spend a lifetime exploring here and never run out of new places to find.

Dutch Pro surfer Yannick Jager was behind the KLM campaign and their celebration of surfing;
‘As a proud Dutchie, I always preferred to fly with KLM, my native airline who flies to a lot of great locations around the world straight from Amsterdam. Whenever I stepped on board of a KLM flight it always felt a bit like ‘coming home’ after having been away for long periods of time.
So about a year ago I started talking to KLM airlines, with high hopes to find a way to make board bags free as a part of your standard baggage allowance. Fast forward to half a year later and it turned out there were holy corporate soldiers living within the concrete world of big business and dusty decision making dimension of multinationals. People that were dedicated in making a positive change for surfers and people that travel with a passionate reason.

They also gave me the opportunity to come up with a concept to shoot inspirational content around the campaign. I’ve always been looking to document my travels in the nicest way possible so it was a dream job come true. I wanted to work with a ambitious and dedicated, yet small team to work on the production and that really worked out. Stoked I got to work with some great people and to be able to portray a few of the KLM destinations in a way how I perceive them. Excited on the results.’’
