Benefits to the Surfer
- Favorable Flex Dynamics
- Carbon Recoil Creates Momentum, Drive, & Maneuverability
- Natural Buoyancy Characteristics, not corky
- Strength & Durability (2.5 X standard)
- Lightweight but Stable in Big Surf
- 14 World Class Shapers—Over 40 Shapes
- Swift, powerful surfing
The surfer must allow time to adjust to the percussive nature of a core-less board– this requires more psychological adaptation than actual physical responses to how one rides the board. An Aviso board will allow the rider to properly surf in a more rail-to-rail fashion, allowing the surfer to capture what flex and recoil is translating into drive. The construction of Aviso’s surfboards allows for projection through turns and transitions with speed and efficiency.
Differentiating factors of Aviso’s Surfboards:
- Favorable flex characteristics
- Carbon possesses physically superior flex qualities to any type of wood used in surfboards.
- Aviso boards approximate the buoyant force of a standard polyester foam board — they are not “corky”
- Paddle characteristics:
- Aviso boards will allow the surfer to have more momentum in paddling.
- Allows for a 1/2-1 second earlier entrance into a standing position on a wave.
- Greater size variation:
- A surfer can ride an Aviso board that is a few inches larger or a few inches shorter in smaller and larger waves respectively.
- Greater board size range relative to wave size range.
- Aviso acquires the world’s foremost shapes and once a surfer finds a magic board, they can ride it year after year.
- A surfer will want to extend their quiver and add new designs with Aviso’s solid list of shapers.
- Strength and durability:
- Average 6-7 X stronger than P.U. boards [ 2.5 X compression ding resistant and 12X rail strength]
- 2.5 X E.P.S. boards
- Aviso has prototype boards built 3 years ago, ridden in over 1,500 waves and counting without a single pressure ding in the deck, no spider cracks, no delaminating, or other standard board degredative repairs.
- Aviso boards will outlast any board on the market.
- No longer will a surfer count swells or seasons but years and many ones at that.
- Amortize the cost of an Aviso surfboard over a few years vs. standard boards and that’s value.
Q&A — Common Misconceptions
Will water damage an Aviso?
No. Every aspect of Aviso construction makes it resistant to any type of water damage, both inside and outside the board and if the board suffers a ding.
Do Aviso’s have different buoyancy characteristics vs. foam boards?
No. Buoyancy is an issue of weight and volume. An Aviso will have the same buoyant force as a PU board of similar shape and dimensions under a surfer of similar weight.
Will an Aviso sink if it fills up with water?
No. It is physically impossible to sink an Aviso. If it fills up with water due to a large ding the board will still float. Therefore an Aviso will not drag a surfer underwater if water gets inside the board. The board may be sluggish, but can be ridden sideways, top up, on the surfers belly to the beach.
Does Aviso technology only apply well to fishes?
No. Aviso boards, in all board size and shape categories, possess remarkable flex qualities, handling characteristics, and strength. From the 5’1’’ shortboard to the Dale Velzy 9’6’’, Aviso boards provide a more performance driven experience that extend life to a quiver.
The professional surfers are not convinced of Aviso?
No. Professional surfers providing positive feedback on our boards include, but are not limited to, the following; Chris Ward, Pat O’Connell, Tom Carroll, Dave Rastovich, Shea Lopez, Tamyo Perry, Dustin Barca, Christian Wach, Christian Fletcher, Shayne McIntyre, Beau Young, Jesse Heilman, Punker Pat Towersey, Ryan Carlson, CJ Nelson, and a plethora of other rippers. This list is rapidly growing.
Are the materials and methods used in the construction of Aviso boards bad for the environment?
No. Both the materials and manufacturing practices of Aviso are far more environmentally sound vs. traditional board building. Low volatile organic content output (VOC) and epoxy is much more environmentally healthy vs. polyester.
