Making your own Alaia

Korduroy/Patagonia Alaia Shaping Tutorial from Cyrus Sutton on Vimeo.

In a petroleum-addicted, pre-packaged culture a fire has been sparked that will transform surfing forever. From his Australian country shed, Tom Wegener has opened the door to surfing’s future by reintroducing the Alaia, an ancient wooden surf craft devoid of fins, foam or rocker. Welcome to a new age where a single surfer with simple tools and natural materials can push the limits of modern surfing.

Join Patagonia Cardiff, Korduroy.tv and Jon Wegener this Saturday, August 8th for an alaia shaping tutorial. Also check out Thalia St. Surf Shop Friday, August 14th for the Korduroy.tv website launch party. Both events are free and feature sneak screenings and limited, home-made dvd/books of “Tom’s Creation Plantation.”
