What Is An Alaia Surfboard?

Paulowina is great for surfboards because it has a good weight to strength ratio, being lighter than hardwood but more durable than balsa. It also absorbs less water than many other types of wood and therefore does not need a resin or glass finish, which makes it super ecological—though you could glass it if you wanted.
