Big news’ for the shaper grossetano Aurelius Greens and its brand AV Boards that enriches the speeder Alberto Possati as new Member. RIWmag reached Aurelius in order to present these new’ his audience.
RIW: Hi Aurelius. Thanks for keeping us informed of your new projects! We start from the beginning: How long have you been on your own with AV Boards and why you started with a concept of custom tables?
Aurelio Greens: Hi Ezio, We know each other for several years and we have always done a good job with, for me it is an immense love to be here to tell you my plans. Now I am almost 3 years that I started my adventure with AVBOARDS, where I wanted to stake everything on a small production of Custom that aveese the quality that today I don't see much to ride, both in terms of shape that has level of construction. This experience gave me a chance to gear up to develop new shape and staying in the audience of windsurfers, listening to what their demands and needs.
RIW: Now present a new production line. You will integrate’ the custom line? Why this change in strategy?
A.V.:Actually, I had already intended from the beginning to one day build a series production. I couldn't until I developed a line of my own and mostavo which were my skills. Today thanks to Alberto Possati, new AV partner BOARDS srl, What was just a dream, It was possible to. I must also thank Kinetic, They welcomed me with open arms and gave me a chance to start mine finally series production.
Unfortunately in order to be able to provide a Custom production in Italy, management and production costs, are too many for the ability of boards that could still bring out. Also I spent 12 hours a day just to be sanded and laminate, thing that I can never get enough, but she didn't give me a chance to promote and have a line of boards to test all windsurfers. That's why it was necessary to introduce a production line, and let not lose Custom line, was my heart and always will be, but now I can satisfy many more windsurfers and make myself known worldwide.
RIW: Where are produced your serial boards? Why did you decide not to produce in the same factory where they produce most of the serial boards around the world market?
A.V.: The plates are produced in KINETIC, a company with a thirty-year experience in construction of boards, developed in recent years on the buildings of sup and surf in epoxy, having as customers Marc Lewis, Loost Surfboards, Alex Aguera, Dave Kalama and lobbies still. I met them through my collaboration for the slalom boards with Simmer Style, another company that produces the tables in Kinetic, from there I could assess their quality and I was really shocked by what they could do. Their policy is not to produce poor quality, to give only one product to the top, and, being a great aziedna, prefers to work with small brands that have behind a good experience, You can only improve their product. As you know I worked and I know even Cobra, where all the other big brands produce, but like I said I have a small brand and I don't want to have to make large numbers to chase others, will I get a different product from what the market offers, and I can contribute to the improvement of the product.
RIW: What stand out your serial boards from the rest of the market?
A.V.: Already that I produce where others are not, I already have a product different from the rest of the market ... joke ...
Before you create the AVBOARDS I am a windsurfer, I have always been among the windsurfers and I try to listen to their every need and every problem they find, This allowed me to develop a line designed to try simply to improve and enhance more’ This splendid sport. That's why I decided to use the best materials that exist and the best technology to realize my boards, because every one of us must love your table and if you want we can offer a product to love and that lasts. I thought to simplify learning of the first windsurfing lessons, I made a Hammer Nose for line Freemove, I made each shape simple and fun, specific for his range and equipped with GORE-TEX AIR VALVE, that allows you to forget the problem of pressure inside the styrofoam boards. I can tell you that I think I've thought of everything, but I leave then to the public to judge what's really different between AVboards and the rest of the brands.
RIW: When your tables of series will be available for customers?
A.V.:The official presentation will do it for Defiwind, in France, will the collection 2020 and the first models will be available for June, the first container arrives ...
RIW: On facebook Taty Frans posted a picture of her while doing freestyle with a Board AV Board. This year Taty correra’ with your freestyle snowboards? There are other pro riders coming into the team AV Boards?
A.V.: TAtY Frans will be part of the team AVboards, but for this year will not be able to participate in competitions with my boards, I arrived late to register and let them use them in race, for this we'll see it only in photos and on video but not during competition. We'll see though with FutureFly in slalom, where with Arnon we managed to do a great job. The project is to take the other top riders, This year will be a year of promotion and evaluation, to get ready for the 2020.
