Wood is light and resistant to water. It is also easy to shape and looks really attractive when it's oiled. Although they may look delicate. They can withstand a lot of use, with a little care an alaia will last a lifetime, and at the end of its life it will return to nature. To make your Alaia, all you need to do is cut out a template, shape the rails and bottom curves and oil it with linseed oil.

The exceptional properties of Paulownia wood is suitable for most wood-working projects. Our Paulownia blanks have a very light weight. Customers can use it for alaia surfboards, bottoms and decks for Sups and hollow surfboards, paipos, kite boards, handplanes and other ocean crafts.
