Alaia Surfing 1.21.09
Surf photo of my first Alaia (and surfboard) I shaped. I used Paulownia wood. Very fun to shape and surf prone, knee or standing. I've only had the opportunity to surf it in small waves so standing was very challenging. I rode it prone and had the most fun in a long time on tiny, knee high waves! The Alaia makes you reevaluate how to enjoy waves!

yo do you glass these things???
No you cover them linseed oil and terpentine wax thats been boiled together..i've got one with a small nose and tail patch of res to make it stronger..
No glass. I used bees wax instead of the turp, but I'm sure there's different solutions to apply.
