2012 Naish Alaia
Target: A light wind gem in a simple finless, strapless design.
When Captain Cook discovered Hawaii in the 18th century, he and his crew witnessed surfing for the first time. True to its roots, the Alaia takes it back to where surfing began in Hawaii.
The Alaia is shaped out of solid Paulownia wood, with a design that has been refined for modern day surfing. This inspired the Alaia’s transition into kiteboarding.
The Alaia shines in light wind. It has amazing upwind performance and is super fun to ride when the winds aren’t cranking.
Can be used as an Alaia surfboard.
