The alaia-shaping classes with Jon Wegener & Cyrus Sutton will take place on Saturday, August 8, 2009 at Patagonia Cardiff. Please call (760) 634-9886 if you're interested in attending. Classes will be about 40 minutes long and are scheduled for 11am, 12pm, 2pm and 3pm. If you can't make the class but still want to shape your own alaia, visit Wegener Surfboards to order a paulownia wood blank.
Our thanks go out to Cyrus Sutton for putting the video together. Cyrus has a new Web site, Korduroy.tv, that's officially launching next week. It will feature webisodes about DIY culture — how to make your own surf wax, board bags, art, skateboards, as well as how to compost, recycle, etc. It will be geared mostly towards ocean-orientated folks at the start but there's potential for much broader audience. We'll keep you updated as the site matures.
