Ian Powell getting slotted again…

Here is another crazy sequence of my friend Ian getting absolutely slotted on his 5`5 Aviso RNF.  Its so hard to put things into perspective, but this wave is such a heavy beachbreak.  I surfed it a few times with him and the pictures really don`t do it justice. Definitely a wave he will remember for a very long time…

Small but clean in town this morning, 5`9 Fireblade is Amazing!

The waves dropped off a lot today but there were a few waves on tap despite the high tides.  I finally got a chance to ride my new 5`9 Fireblade and even though the waves were pretty soft, it worked so good! I am really excited now to get this thing in some good surf, I know it is going to work insane!  I think this model will definitely shine in some good surf:)

Hopefully the North Pacific will keep busy and send us some more swell soon. Check back soon for more, and I hope you all had a great holiday weekend…

Happy Thanksgiving!!!

Hope you all had a wonderful day today! I am so full right now I can barely move. I just got home from my parents house, and feel myself nodding off as I type this so I am going to keep it short…

Waves should be good tomorrow so get on it early if you can pull it.  Winds might be an issue later in the day, and possibly on Saturday, but we will see what happens. Just wanted to thank all of you taking the time to check out the blog and I wish you all the best!

Now go bet barreled in the morning:)

Checking out the new issue of Blue with Cole and the boys…

Just got a copy of the latest issue of Blue Magazine from my good friend Taro over at NakiSurf.  I went by Cole`s shop to show it off and ran into Carlson along with Robo and Cole.  Here are a few shots I took in the shop and a few of the magazine as well.

They did a very nice article on Aviso in there materials section, as well as a a profile on Christian Wach`s trip over to Japan a few months back.  Below are some shots from the Aviso article, and please check back soon for more on the Sea Wach profile…

Ian Powell on his 5`5 Aviso RNF

Here are a couple shots of my friend Ian riding his 5`5 Aviso RNF down in Mexico.  This board is over two years old and has seen the inside of more barrel`s than most of us will in our lifetimes…
