Sea Walk back in California

Christian just got back from Norway and should be here for the next few weeks before he is off to Japan at the end of the month!  We had a chance to hook up for a bit this afternoon and get some little waves down at the beachbreak. Christian was ripping on his 5`0 Cole Aviso BD3, and was making even the smallest wave look super fun! I am always amazed by his style and grace!!

I rode the 5`10 Cole Aviso Firefly and was blown away by how much speed I was able to get, even though the waves were hardly cooperating!  I was not expecting much from the little two foot peaks but the board worked really well so I ended up having a lot of fun. Here are a few pics, check back tomorrow for more…

The 5`1 is almost done!

Cole is almost done with the plug for the 5`1 Cole/Aviso BD3! Cole has done it again, the board looks truly amazing!! He had to have spent about three hours today perfecting the quad-bonzer bottom. I could not believe the time he put into it. After watching him today I have even more respect for what it takes to create such a work of art. It was really a beautiful thing to see!

Here are a handful of shots I snapped off in the shaping room. Check back tomorrow for more pics…

Coming Soon…

Responding to the demand for a trunkboard that would fill the gap between the 5`0 and 5`2, Cole started work today on a 5`1 BD3 plug.  Personally I am very excited about this board.  While I love the 5`0 and the 5`2, I have always felt that the ideal BD3 for me (at 6`0, 165lbs.) would be something right in the middle of the two boards.  This new model should fall right in that range.  Here are a few shots I took of Cole this morning checking out the plug and getting ready to dig in!

In-N-Out

That was the theme of the day… In-N-Out! The waves were horrible down in San Clemente today so CWach and I made the call to rush it North and we ended up scoring at Rincon!  After braving LA in the rain and our first (of two) missions to In-N-Out, we came through Ventura to find the wind howling offshore! After checking little Rincon we headed down to the Queen of the Coast and it was offshore, about 4ft, and only ten or so guys out! Christian and I could not get our suits on fast enough!! We ended up surfing for about three hours until the sun went down and hit the road back down south.  That was our day, we scored In-N-Out, got some in-n-outs, then did it all again!  Hopefully the winds will be kind to us tomorrow, because there definitely should be some swell for the next few days..

Small waves, perfect weather…

There were some little waves to be had at a few spots up and down the coast but most places were still pretty small… I ran down the trail for a bit this afternoon with Christian an got some waves on the 5`2 BD3.  I love that board, it is a wave magnet!  Everyone in the water was asking about it because the thing just flies,plus it paddles like a dream!  Rusty Long was frothing to try it out and even Damien Hobgood stopped to check it out.  I let a few of the boys get some waves on it and they all agree, the BD3 is AMAZING!!

Fun waves to be had!

Kelly Slater riding the 5`0 Cole AVISO!

Check out these shots of the nine time, and current world champ riding the 5`0 Cole AVISO over the weekend at his brothers invitational event in Cocoa Beach, FL.  

I guess Jeremy Johnston was down at the contest representing on his 5`0 when Kelly came up to him on the beach.

He told him that the 5`0 Cole Aviso was the sickest board that he had ever seen and asked to try it out.

Kelly went on to take the heat and the contest, while Jeremy made it to the quarterfinals. 

Check back soon for more pics as they come to us…

Cocoa Beach... if you have never been you need to go.  There is not always surf, but there is plenty of entertainment around if it goes flat on you..
