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.

From music festivals to your favorite shops to the backs of some of the biggest celebs, Aviator Nation is doing something right.
If you care about where your clothes come from, you're probably already familiar with the made-in-California brand. But it's time you also got to know its founder and CEO, Paige Mycoskie (who's responsible for creating some of the softest T-shirts and sweats we've ever felt).
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 are gender specific. It's not uncommon for women to get men's sweatpants as they have pockets and offer a looser fit.
