About us – the pioneer surfers

Andras Brixen Vágsheyg

Andras

Andras started surfing when studying in Australia. After 4 years abroad he move back home and got in touch with Kat, who was surfing at the time, and it was an instant fellowship. Since then Andras has been surfing his “own backyard” with empty line-ups and plenty of perfects swells. Andras has a Bachelor of Exercise Science and is currently working on a Master of Health Science.

Katrin W. Bærentsen

Kat

Kat tried surfing for the first time in Santa Cruz, California, as an exchange student. She fell in love immediately and along with Andras she is the pioneer surfer in the Faroe Islands who has spent years mastering the unpredictable forecast and circumstances. Her partner, their 3 children and Pepsi (the dog) come along to surf every now and then. If you don’t find her at the beach, you might find her working at the local swimming pool as a lifeguard.

Tóri B. Christiansen

Tóri

Tóri is a cold water surfer by heart born in ’97. He originally took up surfing in the Faroe Islands and is the “next generation” of original surfers on the islands. He has been surfing like a maniac and is a natural talent. He joined the FISG crew in 2020 and when he is not surfing, he constructs buildings and is a qualified carpenter.
