WoodI try not to post too many notices for upcoming events (as there are simply too many to keep up with around the world).
This one, however, caught my eye.
Think of it as Sacred Craft for a tight vertical interest group... a hybrid of surfer/woodworkers.
I know... two summers ago it was the explosion of the fish (seemingly overnight everyone was riding fish surfboards) and last year was the Stand Up Paddle board... and we all know the alaia is just this years flavor du jour.
I'm fine with whatever classification people put on these trends. To me they just simply reinforce my love of oceans, waves and beaches. They are new source of joy... another way to put a smile on my face.
If you find yourself on the Gold Coast on August 9th this may be a fun one to check out.
PS. Summer 2011, stand up alaias... you heard it here first
