The alaia are some of the earliest known surfboards ever made and ridden by the ancient Hawaiians. The alaia is an almost rocker-less pieces of wood with no fins, now that may not sound so inviting, but the alaia are surprisingly sophisticated. It’s all about glide, bite, slide and release and with this board. The simple act of going across a wave can be both incredibly difficult and incredibly rewarding. The alaia has taken the world by storm largely in no small part to the whittlings of one Mr Tom Wegener. Tom got me onto the alaia quite a few years ago now, showing me the templates and how to build them and I’ve always had at least 2 in my quiver ever since. We make a variety of both stand up and prone alaia using AAA grade paulownia wood, and even triple cedar stringered versions as well. According to those in the know – the shorter the board the easier they are to ride. Available from 8’0 stand up alaia models down to 3’0 bellyboards. Feel no resistance.
