Well its always nice when the waves and the weather come together like they did over the last few days! Today the high pressure system started to break down a bit, but conditions were clean all morning.
Also I spent some time with Christian Wach before be split to go to Norway to shoot a piece for Outside Magazine with Yazzy and crew. The kid has only been back from Oz for a few days and now he is off to go camp and surf in the snow for ten days!
Usually I would follow that up by saying what a lucky 19 year old he is but in this case CWach deserves every bit of it. The kid has worked his ass off, made it through tougher times than most can imagine, and through it all he has carved out his niche as one of the most versatile up and coming surfers on the planet. He was recently featured in the hot 100 from Surfer Mag, which says a lot when you consider he is the only guy on the list who surfs anything but a standard thruster 99 percent of the time.
Anyway here he is throwing his new ultra-light 5`0 Cole/Aviso BD3 in his Nakisurf bag. Check back for more on his trip here on the Aviso Blog and in an upcoming issue of Outside Magazine…
