sailing-with-klos-guitarMy life completely changed on August 30, 2017. You see, that is the day I started my new life, the life where I am traveling around the world on a sailboat with 80 other students/teachers and crewmembers. My journey started in Kristiansand, Norway, and will continue until June 2, 2018, making it a total of approximately 9 months.

A little information about me: my name is Fredrik Albert Sletholt. I am a 16-year-old student from Kristiansand, Norway. I went to a normal school in Norway, but I wanted something more out of my second year in high school. I saw the global sailing program that A+ World Academy offered, and I knew it was something I wanted. Not to mention that I would surprisingly have plenty of time to further develop my passion for guitar.

Ever since I was a little child, I loved music. Music was always a huge part of my childhood. My whole family has been involved with music and following in my brothers’ footsteps is especially important to me. My brothers started to teach me how to play the guitar when I was about 10 years old, which means I’m rounding out my sixth year of playing right about now. After some years of playing in a band and taking guitar lessons, I was able to learn how to play proper guitar for myself.  When I decided to travel the world, I knew I had to bring a guitar. Now, after one month into the journey, I am so happy that I got to bring the KLOS Guitar.

The reason I fell in love with the KLOS Guitar was that the size and durability was perfect for my journey. I was a little worried about what sort of sound a carbon fiber guitar would have, but when I got it, I was thrilled with how it sounded! Sitting on the for-deck of the ship, under the stars, playing my favorite songs on the guitar is breathtaking.  Read More…..
