A day in the glassing house with Paige Mycoskie + Bob Haakenson

Aviator Nation surfboards have been a long time coming. They encompass an epic part of the 1970's laid-back  California lifestyle, and have been a passion project of our founder, Paige for the past ten years. Finally, her dream of creating the perfect Rainbow riding machine, has come to fruition.  

Over the last several months, Paige has been working closely with legendary Santa Barbara shaper, Bruce Fowler and iconic glass man, Bob Haakenson to develop the first Aviator Nation Surfboard. 

Yesterday, she spent the day with glasserman, Bob "Hawk", fine tuning the color work and learning the process of airbrushing. Pretty rad that the same guy who glassed for legendary Shaun Thompson (during his world title years) will be painting the Aviator Nation Surfboards. 

We are super excited to announce that these amazing boards will be available in stores spring 2016.

Paige Mycoskie, the designer behind California fashion brand, Aviator Nation, is all about 1970s nostalgia.  She has truly captured the good vibrations that spell out West Coast style through the worn-in vintage feel, retro surfer dude, and hippie that can be seen in all of her apparel. Her ability to infuse music, which she believes promotes global change, into all of her endeavors is impressive to say the least.

Fit Guide
Please note that due to the intense wash and dye processes we use some products  will come out different than others. If you ever get a item that does not fit you perfectly we will gladly exchange it for you as many times as it takes until you are satisfied.
Hoodies and Crewneck Sweatshirts
Aviator Nation hoodies and sweatshirts are unisex. Yes, this means you can steal your boyfriend's hoodie and never think twice about rocking it. It also means that our sizing is unique. In general our hoodies run a bit small for men and a bit big for women.

Unisex Tees

The unisex tees run true to size for women and a bit small for guys, so guys order a size up if you are unsure.

Sweatpants 

Sweatpants are gender specific. It's not uncommon for women to get men's sweatpants as they have pockets and offer a looser fit.
