We put a lot of time working with Jon Modica on this design and we're really happy with it. I will say that the most important part of your Alaia will be the boards flex. FLEX is what makes kiting the Alaia so much fun and unique as compared to other boards. With that said I also feel very strongly that you will need to glass your board. I say this because breaking an Alaia while trying to land an air or laying hard into a wave is the worst feeling ever. I've broken two, and i've switched over to glassing my boards so I don't have to worry about it. The issue is, if you glass your board, don't make it too stiff, otherwise it will feel more like a skimboard and less like a magic carpet.
We're making new batch soon and will be playing around with making the board super thin, so that after glassing it has the same flex as a un-glassed paulownia board.
stay tuned over at Waterlust for updates as we will be shooting a sequel to Woodsled that showcases the latest and greatest in Alaia shredding!
