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.

This week’s South By Southwest film and music festival in Austin, Texas, includes the launch of the Honda Rebel + Aviator Nation limited edition cruiser. The collaboration kicks off at the Waterloo Records Day Parties taking place from March 15th – March 18th.
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.
