Great shot of Naki with his 5`0 Aviso

Love this shot of Naki with his 5`0 Cole Aviso from one of his past trips to the South Islands of Japan. The 5`0 Cole Trunk Board in Aviso Technology is hands down the most travel friendly board on the market today. Get one now and you will be appreciating it for a very long time…

Naki pushing the limits on the 5`0 Aviso BD3

Check out the shots of Naki riding his 5`0 Cole/Aviso BD3 in Hawaii. These shots were taken during those last two swells we got this past week.  Definitely some of the biggest waves that I have seen the 5`0 surfed in. Very impressive Naki-san…

Some things are worth more than gold...

Swell starting to pick up a bit around town…

The swell finally started to show it`s face a little bit at the beach breaks around town this afternoon. Things are looking good for the next few days, hopefully conditions will cooperate as well. Here is a little shot on the 5`0 BD3 from this afternoon…

More swell on the way for California…

Looks like we should get another shot of WNW swell filling in as I write this and another round following it up next week! We have had a great season so far and thing don`t show any signs of slowing down. With this swell coming at more of a westerly angle (275-300), it should open up most spots, especially here in Southern California.

Check back tomorrow for some shots from around town, for now here is a shot of Kelly Slater exhibiting perfect form on the 5`0 Aviso BD3 by Cole in white pro finish.  Makes me want to go stretch right now…

Breaking in the New Year

Here are a few shots I took today. Lowers was bogged out by the tide early so I headed south to visit family at the ranch then surfed Rivi on the 5`0 BD3 as the tide dropped later in the day…

Fun waves at Cottons Point today…

Got some fun waves today on the 5`0 Aviso BD3! Looks like the swell picked up throughout the day and should hold through the morning…

Christian`s trip to Norway (Part 3)

Here is the final installment of Christian`s email from his Norway trip. Please leave a comment if you have a second, I changed the setting so it should be easier to leave one…

PICT0023“We took the Kraemmervika speedboats out today and went fishing! SO ZINE dude… I caught the biggest fish I’ve ever caught in my life. A huge Cod! I only caught two fish but they were both pretty big. Probably about two or three feet long. Cod is the number one export in Norway. It is very interesting. You see thousands of cod hanging from wooden stilts in uniform lines. The cod dries for 2-3 months. There are 17 catagories of Cod. The highest quality goes to Italy and lowest quality, the fish heads, go to Africa for Cod stew. Pretty weird how the world works like that. Anyways, the bay where we fished today was incredible. Huge sheer mountains come down into the ocean and create an insane fjord which is like a huge bay.

As far as the surf goes, it’s been pretty flat but really nice weather. We surfed once and it wasn’t even that cold. I thought it would be colder, but then again, the sun was out, and it was keeping us fairly warm. The waves were fun too. Fun little lefts for the CJ Nelson Aviso model I brought.

That’s pretty much what we’re up to. Soon we will be camping about an hour away on some deserted beach where we have to take a boat to. Then we have to hike about an hour to the beach where will then post up and really live it rugged because at the moment we’re living like kings eating waffles and cod all day. The outdoors will be a great angle for the Outside Magazine article. After camping for as long as we can bear without getting frost bite, we’re heading North to Russia to camp some more. We’ve heard there’s a lot of radio activity along the coastal waters so I’m a little nervous about that but what’s an adventure without a little fear? I’m looking forward to it. After that we are flying over to the Faroe Islands. That’s an entirely different adventure we’ll be tapping into. I’ll try and send out more updates as soon as I have more to write about because that’s pretty much all of it. Thanks for reading!”    Christian

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…
