You simply cannot love wooden surfboards without having heard about the nearly heroic efforts of the Wegener brothers to bring the ancient Hawaii'n Alaia back into the modern day spotlight. Since discovering these ancient sliding devices at the Bishop Museum, Jon and his brother Tom have all but dedicated their lives to convincing surfers today that our surfing predecessors had more skill, both in shaping and surfing, then we may have given them credit for.
Jon is coming all the way from California to show us New England surfers what he's known for years, that fins are overrated. We even convinced Jon to come out early, so he'll be teaching a class for the few days leading up to the event, and each student will take home their own hand-shaped Alaia. It's not too late to sign up. Otherwise, we'll see you on the 10th for Surf Re-Evolution.
