Chrisitan scores another cover on his 10`0 Aviso!

Christian Wach scored another cover on his Aviso, this time riding his 10`0 CJ Nelson Aviso model!   It takes a lot for a yankee to score the cover of Australian Longboarder Magazine, but after his dominance over at Noosa the past few years they decided he earned it.  Here is Christian with a whole new spin on tip time… Photo by Dane Peterson.

500th day of the Blog…Crazy weather in So Cal… Sea Walk in Outside Magazine!

Wow, I can not believe that we started the blog exactly 500 days ago! Even though I have only managed to get up about 350 or so posts I still feel like it has been quite the journey so far, and  can`t wait to see what the next 500 days will bring my way! The posts should be coming daily from here on out so keep checing back for all the latest.

The weather has been insane the last few days. Definitely more rain in the last few days than we have had in the last few years I would imagine. There is tons of swell in the water as well, lets just hope it cleans up a bit these next few days and we could be frothing!

Here are a few shots I took from T-street today as well as some shots of Christian and the 5`0 Cole Aviso in the new double-issue of Outside Magazine! The shots were taken by Yazzy on there 42 day journey to the Arctic Circle last year, most of which they spent in the Lofton Islands of Norway. I am always amazed by Christians ability to surf so well no matter what the conditions. He is a really remarkable young man and I have so much respect for all that he has been able to overcome and accomplish at such a young age. Check back soon for more…

Couple random shots from the boys…

Here are a few shots I pulled off the web today. The waves were pretty small around San Clemente today and then trend will continue most of the week. Things are looking up for the weekend though so don`t quit swimming your laps just yet…

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…

How sick is this picture of Christian Wach on the 10`0 CJ Nelson Aviso designed by Bob Pearson (Pearson Arrow). I guess he was getting bored just hanging ten so he decided to step it up a notch. Waves were tiny but clean today, definitely a good weekend for the log. Hope you are all getting ready for a big Halloween tomorrow…

So Sick!
