Jon Wegener and the Alaia

At its heart, surfing is about harnessing the power of the ocean to slide around on a piece of wood. Jon Wegener’s handcrafted alaia boards pay homage to these simpler times — reaching all the way back to surfing’s Polynesian roots. But Jon isn’t trying to make the sport regress. Instead, he’s become part of a new evolution by studying history and reigniting an interest in the designs favored by surfing’s Hawaiian forbearers. Check out this rad piece on Jon by Uproxx here.
