So I've been surfing for about 8 years now and shaping boards the past year (5 total) and I'm staring to explore new options. I'm certainly not opinionated either way when it comes to board choice i just love being on the water. I love shredding a shortboard on nice chest high and up days and love cruising on my longboards on the smooth knee to waist high days. I'm contemplating building and alaia board and wanted some peoples thoughts if its worth it. I've heard theyre a ton of fun on real long chest high breaks but would it be rideable on our east coast waist high slop? enough power in the waves? etc... thanks for any thoughts
