The Slipper is an updated version of the alaia design. It combines the fast and exhilarating ride quality of the alaia with the buoyancy of a conventional board. If you have never ridden an alaia, this design is a good starting point because your wave count will go up. More waves means more practice with finless surfing! If you are familiar with alaias this board will allow you to surf a wider range of conditions and try things you wouldn’t with a conventional design.
