Check this video out from Surfline.  I am sorry about the add, but I could not get rid of it.  A group of guys are in Liberia, teaching Liberians  how to make surfboards they will be able to afford and make themselves.  Currently, they have to hope traveling surfers will leave them a board when the traveler leaves the country.  Recently, I made a few boards and blanks that went to Liberia to be apart of the project.

Foampick

Mike's new toothpick. This is roughed out.  I hope to finish it up tomorrow.  This is a little bit of a experiment.  I have made a couple of wood toothpicks and are great.  Mike wanted a lighter version, so we are trying epoxy.  It will be interesting to compare.  The wood has so much momentum, but the foam may have benefits.

Here is a article from the Ocean Beach  Bulletin.  The Bulletin did a interview with Paul about his surfboard quiver.  Paul is an alaia riding advocate,   He is definately tough, riding an alaia in the cold northern water with no leash.  Check out his clothing company No Enemy.  His entire quiver looks pretty sweet.

Alaia Evolution Utilizing Wind Power

video
Check out this video done by Alex K.  He is riding a custom alaia kiteboard I made him.  He calls Freckles.  Please take note how the board skims over  the kelp, but does not slide or skip out.  The board is finless.  He and his brother in Hawaii are super happy with the way the alaias are kiting.
