The Alaia surf house is located in the centre of Corralejo, just a stone's throw from the sea and the main street. Alaia were the names of the traditional Hawaiian boards used for hundreds of years in the Pacific to surf the waves. These flat, solid wooden boards, which had hardly any rocker and no keels, had not been used since the late 19th century. In 2006, when shaper Tom Wegener tested his Paulonia wood prototypes among pro surfers, the Alaia board experienced a spectacular renaissance.
These boards force us to find a perfect position, a special balance and to use the edges as a turning tool, as they normally lack fins, and thus we only glide on the water. Their use is also defended for ecological reasons, because the wood of the Paulonia does not need to be glazed with polyester or fibres, grows quickly, does not wear out the ground and is practically fireproof.
We offer rental of these and other boards, and are happy to teach you the actions as part of our Personal Travel Coaching. Find out about these and more activities in our surf house, or use our coworking space with free WiFi. In the evenings, the surf house transforms into the "Alaia Vintage Surf Bar", perfect to end the day together with a drink, surf videos and good music.
