Our Alaia Surfboards are traditionally shaped boards reminiscent of the first surfboard ridden pre-20th century in Hawaii. Our Alaia’s have a minimal amount of concave through the tail and convex to the rails giving these boards a surprising amount of hold in the water.
Sustainability & The Environment:
Our surfboards are handcrafted individually with natural materials, sourced from suitably fast growing Paulownia timber. Each Alaia’s is coated in Lanolin oil, which is a naturally sourced product, derived from sheep’s wool. It is naturally biodegradable, as well as acid and salt resistant - which makes it a perfect alternative finish to any timber surf-craft. When Lanolin is applied directly to your timber surfboard, it provides a repellent coating that actually works to resist the sea water with its tacky finish. This means you don’t need to use wax, if you don’t want to. Lanolin is a non-flammable product and is much more user-friendly for you and the ocean environment! It is a Biodegradable product, Non-toxic and Non-carcinogenic meaning its healthy for you and the planet.
'No board is mass produced'
All our surfboards are handmade, individually one at a time by our family. No board is mass produced. Approximately each board takes 2-3 weeks to create and every board is a complete labour of love. Like our surfboards, every Alaia is custom made to order, allowing every board we make to be unique and embrace the natural variances in each piece of timber we use.
