Aviso Fireblade is born!

I was sidelined all week by some weird flu bug so I have not been keeping up with everything as I should, but this week we finished the first Aviso Fireblade!!

After completion the first board was sent to Southern California for a quick photo shoot, then was on its was to Japan the very same day bound for our good friend Naki, so he can showcase it at his “feel the glide” event at the Apple store in Ginza!

Here are a few shots from the tooling process, as well as the finished product, the very first 5`9 Aviso Fireblade designed by Cole Simler. ┬áCheck back soon for more shots of the board making its arrival in Japan…
