Cole Grasshopper in Aviso Technolgy coming soon!!!

Yesterday I picked up the plugs for three new Cole Grasshoppers that will be used to design the models in Aviso`s Carbon Fiber Technology.  We will be offering the Grasshopper in three sizes to start (a 5`7, 5`9 and 5`11). It will come with 5 fin boxes allowing you to ride it as a quad or a thruster or even a twin, allowing all sorts of options.

Cole`s most popular model, the Grasshopper!

The Cole Grasshopper is a full outlined, semi-fish version of his world renowned Firefly model. It has  very low entry rocker, and a moderate amount of kick out the tail. The board also features a unique double wing bat tail which allows the board to be wider at the fins for quick acceleration and drive, and then pull in quickly for more holding power on tight turns. This board absolutely flies through and over sections in small to medium size surf. The Grasshopper should probably be ridden around 4-6 inches smaller than your standard shortboard (depending on the surfer).

The first boards should be ready in September. Get your orders in now so you don`t have to wait in line. Email us at info@avisosurf with any questions or contact one of our international distributors and they would be happy to help you out. Have a great day!

East Coast Love

New Smyrna Beach is kind of like the San Clemente of the East Coast, which is probably why some of my favorite people on the right coast come from this little drinking town with a surfing problem. Here are two of NSB`s favorite sons riding there carbon fiber Aviso`s. The first shot is of John Perkins on his 5`10 Cole Firefly, and the second is of Casey Collins (sorry for the typo Collins!) riding his 5`6 Lost RNF down in South Beach. Also check out their latest video collaboration Mealticket, you wont regret it…

More shots of the 6`1 Fireblade

Here are some more shots of I took of Cole over the weekend with the 6`1 Aviso Fireblade.

img_8488

Cole finished shaping the board last week and after making sure that it passed all his inspections he handed it over to me so that it could be taken up to the factory to begin tooling this week.  Cole is such a perfectionist that he shaped the board multiple times, and spent countless hours fine tuning it to pass even his rigorous standards.

The finished product looks truly amazing, I am so proud that we are going to be offering the complete line of Fireblades before the holidays! Check back soon for the first 6`1 in Aviso Technology…

Making sure the rocker is perfect. This board has a super flat rocker for insane speed!
