One neat thing about alaias is as you get better at riding them you can simply hack them down and reshape them for fancier surfing. I recently had an alaia brought back to me for reshaping. The board at top, modeled by the owner Adam Walker, is the reduced version of his original shape, modeled enthusiastically by my daughter Avery below. On a side note, Adam has a ecelctic and interesting blog thats worth checking out.
