Summer is in the air here in San Clemente and I can not tell you how good it feels to have the water warming up and the days growing longer. Amazing things are happening and I am so proud to announce that Aviso will be releasing a new model for one of our top designers, Cole Simler. His new creation is called the Praying Mantis. It is the latest in the shorter/wider design evolution from the Firefly to the Grasshopper, and now the Mantis. I will be writing more about the board over the next few weeks and giving updates on its progress so please keep checking in. Thanks to all our loyal readers who keep checking in despite the lack of updates, we have big things on the horizon….
