Demi was commissioned by the Independent newspaper to write a main travel feature about a surf destination that was off the beaten track. Supported by the Norwegian Tourist Board, Demi travelled to Stavanger to explore the region. Timing her visit to coincide with one of best swells to hit the region in decades, Demi’s reputation as a surf writer meant she was taken to some of the region’s closely guarded surf spots and given unrivalled access to the community. The resulting feature exploring the potential of Surfing Norway weaves together interviews, anecdotes and first hand travel insights.
