Phil Goodrich back in Indo!

Check out these shots of Phil Goodrich riding his trusty old 6`1 Jeff Johnston Aviso over in Indo last week! These shots were taken by Australian photographer Russell Ord, and here is a little quote I pulled off his blog…

“Lucky enough to do a quick trip to Indo last week with Kerby Brown, Brett Burcher, Cale Grigson and Marti Paradisis. Here is a couple of good friend Phil Goodrich an amazing tube rider and an even better artist the rest of the photos should make an appearance In Waves magazine in the near future.”

Nice to know some things dont change... Phil back in Indo for the 3rd year in a row with his 6`1 Aviso!

What dreams are made of...

Russell taking it on the head to give you a fresh angle... I love this shot!

Three seasons in tubes like this? That is why you always have an Aviso in your quiver when you travel...

Better surfer or artist? You decide...

Amazing work Phil!

Aviso in Haiti

Check out this article from Phil Goodrich`s trip to Haiti a few months ago…

Phil Goodrich, style master!

“Haiti has been many things in its long history as a nation occupying the western third of Hispaniola Island, between the Atlantic Ocean and the Caribbean Sea. From the halcyon French days of Saint Domingue, the most lucrative foreign colony ever founded by a European nation in the New World, to becoming the first black republic after a bloody slave revolt under Toussaint l’Overture; “The Black Napoleon”, to a refuge for German Jews fleeing the Nazi extermination policies, to a sinister redoubt of voodoo under the charismatic Dr Françoise Duvalier, to a non-entity on the itinerary of massive Caribbean cruise ships, Haiti has been through many changes in its long history.”

“More recently, Haiti has become a synonym for hardship and tragedy. The recent earthquake will compound the difficulties of ordinary Haitians. If anywhere did not need a catastrophic natural disaster, it would have to be Haiti. The one thing Haitians have going in their favor in this situation is: Haitians are tough. They have to be. The average Haitian doesn’t have a soft life, and the people are resilient and inventive. With the help of the world community, they can recover and build a better nation than what was before.”

“Our intention in presenting this material from our recent surfing project on the south coast of Haiti, from Jacmel in the east to Les Anglais in the west, is to highlight the outstanding surfing conditions and the color, vibrance, and life of the Haitian people. Haiti is a special place, and for Haiti to recover from this huge earthquake, it will need the assistance of the world and surfers can play their part by donation to a reputable charity and perhaps by planning a future trip to the country. The waves will be there, unridden and empty; the waters of the Caribbean will be as warm and welcoming as the enduring spirit of the Haitian people.”

Love this shot!

Same board still going strong after all these years! Phil has had his 6`1 Jeff Johnston Aviso for almost three years now and it still performs like the day he got it. The only difference is that now he has the thing completely wired! Great job Phil, thanks for everything you have done, you are a gentleman and a true ambassador for our sport…

Filthy Phil the Barrel Philosopher

Lets start August out right with some footage of Phil Goodrich getting shacked on his Aviso over in Nias.  This footage is amazing, and the sitar sets the mood perfectly.  Nothing is better than a sitar on Saturday morning and some sick barrels:)

Check back soon for more on Phil, he went back to Nias last month and then over to Haiti for a few weeks, I just need to go through some photos and get the full story from Phil and I will be back with more of our favorite barrel philosopher…
