Are you surfing A-frame peeling beach breaks in maine or just shore dumps?

I would heartily recommend some of this http://dev.bitness.com/wp-content/uploa ... s-tail.jpg

In fact I think you have just inspired me to make one as I have been offered some paulownia wood at a reasonable price. :o
Nice shape, what are the overall dimensions? I'm getting ready to purchase some red cedar to build two or three and will check out the Alaia designs.
Thanks and Merry Christmas
