Ahua Surfboards

AHUA is a Portuguese startup, they make beautifully crafted Alaia Surfboards. Alaia is a thin, round-nosed, square-tailed surfboard ridden in pre-20th century Hawaii. The most distinguishing characteristic in relation to modern surfboards is the fact that Alaia boards have no fins, which allows a new sense of freedom on the wave. These boards create little friction and like to go fast on the wave. The Ahua alaias are custom made especially for each client, through an initial exchange of ideas, until you reach the most suitable solution. Watch the beautiful video of pro surfer Rob Machado surfing on an Alaia Surfboard below...
