    Alaia

    I glued up some pine planks the other day for an 8' alaia with a swallow tail, parabolic rails and a deep concave/channel running from nose to tail. It's coming along well and am hoping to wrap up sanding by the end of today. I'll be oiling it for the next several days and wishing for some waves to take it out sometime this week! Stoked! I'll post some pics of it once it's completed.

    Here's a pic of my first alaia.

    Gorilla Glue Wateproof. No tongue and groove. But should've put one in to make it extra sturdy. Stay stoked!
