Here are some shots of east coast ripper Phil Goodrich. Phil is one of those soft spoken guys who is just bursting at the seams with talent. He is a great surfer and a nuts artist as well. Here he is riding his 6`1 JJ Aviso in some serious surf at Nias. Most guys would be pulling out there mini guns but Phil putting his 6`1 to the test, with amazing results! Also here are some of his paintings for your viewing pleasure…

Here are some pictures of our man John Perkins riding Aviso Technology on his recent trip to Nicaragua. Perkins did some time out here in San Clemente when he was helping Reola with the …Lost videos which transitioned into helping make the Oakley video Separate Volume. He is a great guy who has helped us with some of our videos and some other dirty work around his home state of Florida. Check it out, he is a solid surfer and a pleasure to have in the family…

Here are a couple of shots of our friend Justin from The Hills with his Cole Aviso. If you have never seen the show thats probably a good thing but it has been on MTV for the last few seasons. They make the guy out to look like a total jerk half the time but he is a pretty cool dude in person. Anyway he was on his way back to LA from doing a radio show in San Diego and stopped by the Aviso house long enough for our friend Ace to snap off a couple shots of Justin and I talking shop in the back yard…
Here are some lifestyle shots that I took of Christian over the last few days with my iphone. We have been putting the 5`0 and the new 5`2 through the ringer and I have got to tell you that it is one of the most amazing and versatile boards that I have ever ridden. Christian has been a huge fan of the 5`0 since its release, even claiming it was one of his favorite all time boards! Then yesterday we pulled out the 5`2 down at San O and the kid paddles out and just starts flying down the line doing the sickest turns! I swear the second that he stood up the thing just took off!!
After watching him go nuts on a few waves we had to split so Christian could get ready for a short notice mission down to Scorpion with his good friend Pickle. He is going to take the 5`0 so I am sure he will have some great stories and hopefully a few shots for us upon his return. Anyway after dropping Christian and meeting up with Aviso warrior Dave Woods, it was time to run back down the trail and put the 5`2 through another round of R and D!
The moment I paddled out I felt this huge smile spread across my face! The board literally paddles like a dream and glides like you would not believe! I was able to catch any wave that I wanted, and had no problem pivoting through my turns. The board just blew my mind! At firs I thought that it might be too much board for me because I love way the 5`0 skates down the wave for me but the extra volume really changed the whole experience for me. The 5`2 paddles in like a funboard but turns like a shortboard. It truly bends the line between form and function, and does so with outstanding effect!
My hat goes off to Cole, John, Naki and all of the people who were instrumental in bringing this dream board to life. Now go get one and try it for yourself, I promise you wont regret it!!
Also check back later in the week for some clips of Christian ripping!

Check out the pictures and write up on the new 9`9 Brian Anderson Aviso model from Robert August!
Model Designed the way that \shapers wish they could have built noseriders back in the 60′s,the ‘BA’ model is way too modern to be considered ‘Retro’. Its robust outline and functional hips are offset with delicately knifed 50/50 rail resulting in a perfect release point for adequate speed and maneuverability. A conservative nose-to-tail rocker and thoughtfully foiled volume encourage smooth trims through critical sections with ultimate control on the tip.
Style: Nuevo Retro

I just got these shots emailed to me late last night. These are the first shots EVER of the very first 5`2 Cole in Aviso Technology! Ever since the release of the revolutionary 5`0 BD3 (trunk board) everyone has been begging for something a little longer and fatter to float the guy up to 200 pounds. Well, Cole and the boys at Aviso have responded, and here it is!! Introducing for the first time, the all new 5`2 Aviso BD3!!!
Johnny and the boys stayed late last night to put on the finishing touches!
Holy quad concave Batman!!
