Alex's brother, Dave has been kiteboarding a 6'2'' Peanut in Hawaii and says it is working really good. The alaia has unmatched speed and can go over reefs. He uses no straps or fins of any kind. So Alex, here, now has a 5'9'' nose kick version.
Alex's board came from this piece of wood. I re-sawed it into the boards on the right side. The other boards are for paipos, handplanes and alaias.
