I love this shot of Ian Battrick getting barreled out of his mind in France… He just looks so damn comfortable in the tube on his Aviso!
I have been out in Tahoe all week working on a few things at the shop and have not had any time to update the blog. Be back in action again this next week so please keep checking back. For now here is a quick shot of our man Tommy Lloy giving us his best Blue Steel out in front of the factory with the 5`2 Aviso BD3…
Ian just posted a bunch of insane barrel shots on his blog of him riding his 6`1 Doc Aviso over in Indo that you all have to go check out. Here are a few shots I grabbed as a little teaser, but go to Ian`s Blog to see the rest, you will be stoked….
Yesterday I picked up the plugs for three new Cole Grasshoppers that will be used to design the models in Aviso`s Carbon Fiber Technology. We will be offering the Grasshopper in three sizes to start (a 5`7, 5`9 and 5`11). It will come with 5 fin boxes allowing you to ride it as a quad or a thruster or even a twin, allowing all sorts of options.
The Cole Grasshopper is a full outlined, semi-fish version of his world renowned Firefly model. It has very low entry rocker, and a moderate amount of kick out the tail. The board also features a unique double wing bat tail which allows the board to be wider at the fins for quick acceleration and drive, and then pull in quickly for more holding power on tight turns. This board absolutely flies through and over sections in small to medium size surf. The Grasshopper should probably be ridden around 4-6 inches smaller than your standard shortboard (depending on the surfer).
The first boards should be ready in September. Get your orders in now so you don`t have to wait in line. Email us at info@avisosurf with any questions or contact one of our international distributors and they would be happy to help you out. Have a great day!
