Casey on the 5`9 Timmy Patterson

Here are a few shots of my friend Casey Landvogt on his 5`9 Timmy Patterson Aviso!  Casey has been through a lot with his board. It is probably like two years old, has been stolen, returned and still surfs like new! I think these shots were taken a few weeks ago down at the beach breaks in town…

6`1 Aviso Fireblade done and off to the glasser!

The 6`1 Aviso Fireblade (Area 51) is finished and was sent to the glasser this afternoon!  Should be finished  next week and then it is off to the Aviso factory for tooling…

Here are a few shots I took of the board before Robo sent it off to Oceanside to get glassed. Also it looks like the 5`5 should be finished on Monday, so it should not be far behind.

Waves are starting to pick up here in Southern California, should be surf all weekend so get on it! Have fun and take care…

Rail 2 Rail Surfshop, Happy Birthday Perko!

I was down in San Diego today checking in with our man Dave Woods and dropping off a few boards.  Dave is in the process of opening his first surf shop, Rail 2 Rail, just down from the Wavehouse off Mission Bay Blvd.

He is already moving some product even though he is still under construction, but he should be finished up in the next few weeks. Look for a grand opening party by the beginning of December, and make sure you come check him out for all of your Aviso needs in the SD area…

A work in progress...

Cole finishing up the 6`1 Fireblade

Here are a few shots I took today of Cole finishing off the 6`1 Aviso Fireblade!  As always Cole has been putting his heart and soul into the board, shaping and then reshaping  it numerous times until he has the perfect model to convert to Aviso Technology.  After that its off to the glasser then straight to the factory to begin the tooling process.  We could be looking at a finished product in a little over two weeks if everything goes smoothly. Check back soon for more…

Christian Wach in Italy

Christian went to Italy two weeks ago and ended up scoring sick waves on his 5`0 Aviso BD3 designed by Cole Simler in San Clemente, California.  Of course Wach goes half way around the world to a notoriously fickle area and summons perfect waves with amazing conditions.  Here are a few of the shots, be back with more info as it comes to me…
