Want to shape your own Finless Fiesta- Paipo/ Alaia? Sign up for this unique workshop, held at Patagonia Bowery, with Jon Wegener, back from Southern California where he is a pioneer in the design and construction of traditional Hawaiian finless sticks.
Each student will have their choice of building either a paipo or an alaia using paulownia with Jon guiding you through the process.
Students will cut their outlines, and under Jons watchful eye, shape the delicate arcs that make magic of a simple plank. Oiled and ready for launching on day two, everyone will have time to hit the water for a surf. They will have a quiver of wood boards for students to try in the evenings or whenever glue is drying, so pray for surf.
