Here are a few random shots to start the week off right. We had a brief storm front pass by hear in Southern California but it looks like we are going to see a warming trend through out the week and next weekend should be amazing!
Our good friend Naki has been on the road as usual, and just got back from touring with Donavon in Japan. Here are a couple shots of Naki on some sick left in Japan last week riding his trusty 5`0 Aviso Cole BD3.
The Santa Ana winds are swirling as I type this, looks like its going to be offshore again in the morning and there should be another decent swell filling in as well. Plan your day accordingly and have fun out there!
This is the time of year that we wait for here in California. Sometimes we wait all year and it never comes. However the last few weeks we have had the most amazing combination of Santa Ana conditions and swell. The result is perfection up and down the coast, along with thousands of surfers with sore arms and smiles. If you missed it do not worry though, I hear there is more on the way…
The swell was not really hitting in San Clemente today so I headed south early and ended up getting some really good waves down in Oceanside. It was howling offshore when we got there and sets were breaking in the 6 foot range. I rode my Grasshopper once again and it was working great, even on the bigger sets that came through. Cant wait to get on it again tomorrow…
Here are a few shots of our friend Nuno over in Portugal with his new 5`7 Aviso Grasshopper by Cole. Nuno and I both are in agreement that this is perhaps the best Aviso that we have made to date. It is such a fun board, just the perfect hybrid of your shortboard and fish. I will be back with more tomorrow. Thanks for checking in , have a great day!
The waves were small here in town today compared to the last few days but there were still some waves to be had. Not to worry though, the weekend in finally here and there should be more swell filling in as I write this. The tides are still pretty high in the late mornings so get on it early or wait until the tide drains out a bit. Take care and have fun out there!
The conditions cleaned up here in town as the swell continued through out the day. After starting out a bit slow with the extreme high tide this morning, the waves really cleaned up around midday before bottoming out in the late afternoon at a negative tide. I have been riding the new Aviso Grasshopper designed by Cole all week and I have fallen in love with this board. It might be my favorite board that I have ridden. I want to try it with some different fins and will be back with more on my favorite setups soon. Thanks for checking in, take care!
