Viking Surf Trip Hawaii – Nov 2011

Posted on December 29, 2011

As usual, every November, the Viking Crew travels to Hawaii for new model testing and photo shooting.

Team manager Mauricio Kuhne hosted and guided through Oahu’s North Shore, Photographer Bernardo Nogueira and team rider Alessandro Costa during 15 days of pure surfboard testing and free sessions.

This year, Mauricio and Alessandro tested three specific CATBOTTOM  models, the 6′ Hybrid Fish, the 9′ performance long and the 5’7″ performance short.

The results were very positive in the mostly  4′ –  6′ surfing conditions, our boards attracted a lot of attention both in the waves and at the beach.

Christian Wolthers, President of the Company and designer of the CATBOTTOM concept for surfboards, joined the team for a week late November, he surfed the North Shore in different spots.

Bernardo Nogueira did a great job in shooting and film, these can be seen here and in other links through our webpage.

Alessandro Costa lives in Oahu and will continue to test and perform throughout this winter in epic surf conditions, we will show this footage later in the season.

Aloha from Hawaii and have a great winter for all of you surfers out there!!!
