Alaia Blanks

Experience the rich heritage of surfing with our handcrafted Paulownia Alaia blanks.

These specialty boards, meticulously constructed from premium Paulownia wood, are designed specifically for shaping traditional Alaia surfboards. Whether you’re a seasoned shaper or embarking on your first Alaia creation, our blanks provide the perfect foundation for building a board steeped in history and performance.

Paulownia: The Ideal Choice for Alaia Surfboards

  • Lightweight Strength: Paulownia’s exceptional weight-to-strength ratio allows for lightweight boards that retain optimal rigidity. This translates to a responsive ride that carves effortlessly through waves.
  • Carefully Selected Wood: We source only the finest Paulownia wood, ensuring each blank possesses the ideal grain structure and consistency for shaping Alaia surfboards.
  • Counteracting Grain Tension: Our meticulous selection and gluing process counteracts potential tensions caused by the wood’s grain direction. This results in a stable and predictable blank, ready to be shaped into your vision.

Two Blank Options to Suit Your Needs:

  • Traditional Flat Panel: Embrace the pure essence of Alaia shaping with our classic flat Paulownia blank. This blank allows for complete creative freedom, letting you shape the board from a flat starting point.
  • Pre-Shaped Technical Blank: For those seeking a head start on shaping, we offer a pre-formed Paulownia blank. This blank features a gentle curve and a bamboo core sandwiched between two Paulownia wood layers. This innovative design provides a solid base for shaping more technical and modern Alaia surfboards.

Water-Resistant Polyurethane Glue:

We utilize water-resistant polyurethane glue to join the Paulownia slats. This glue offers superior flexibility compared to resin, allowing the Alaia to adapt seamlessly to the water’s movement during riding.

Elevate Your Alaia Shaping Experience:

Our Paulownia Alaia blanks are more than just wood; they’re a gateway to connecting with the rich history of surfing.
