Story

In 2004, as a 15 year old gymnast, I got tired of all the rules and found parkour and freerunning instead. It did not take long before I realized that I wanted to do it for a living, but I also realized that it would take some hard work to get there.

It has been a lot of sacrifices over the years but I love challenges and I am not a person who is afraid of testing my own limits. Hard work pays off! I am living my dream, travelling around the world and doing what I love.

Air Wipp

In 2007 Filip Ljungberg and I started our parkour team Air Wipp in Sweden. Today, nine years later, Air Wipp is so much more than just a parkour team. Nowadays Air Wipp is performing shows, leading workshops, giving lectures, participates in advertising jobs and offering construction and building of parkour parks. Everything that contains movement excites this company. With a lot of energy they make the impossible possible. Through the years Air Wipp has become one of the leading parkour and freerunning companies in the world.

The Air Wipp Challenge

This is our own World Freerunning Championship. Air Wipp invites the world elite parkour athletes to compete against each other and together push the limits in front of a fierce jury.

They have one minute to quickly and smoothly get down on the constructed course in their own unique way to conquer the title as World Champion. It is when these athletes challenge each other The Air Wipp Challenge becomes an unforgettable event.

Air Wipp Academy

The association was formed in 2011 on the basis of great interest among those who wanted to start training parkour. At first, Air Wipp had training sessions in available school halls, however the waiting list of people who wanted to start practicing parkour and freerunning grew fast. We realized that it was time to expand. In January 2013 Air Wipp Academy opened their new premises in Helsingborg, Sweden and quickly became a very popular training center. Today Air Wipp Academy is an indoor sports center for children, youths and adults where parkour is the tool for physical and personal development.
