The Alaia was the surfboard of the common people in Polynesian culture. It is very thin and extremely versatile. An Alaia surfboard is a whole new learning experience with an extremely rewarding wave sliding experience. On top of that the Alaia is a beautiful work of art that is an integral part of surf/surfboard history. Although it is a simple craft, these Alaia surfboards are highly refined with deep concaves and tapered rails.
