i guess it is no secret that i am fascinated and inspired with the arbour-assault being launched into the surf industry at large. the ripples of which has gone beyond surfing per se, and has spilled over into Bodyboarding.
it is significant therefor that not only has the sport’s most recognised figure Mike Stewart launched a Roots series in 2008, as part of his Science Bodyboarding Brand, which boasts an Alaia shaped by Tom Wegener. . . the photo above seems to indicate that he is interested in exploring the performance of this type of craft even further.
Just look at it, it is a beautiful piece of art… and you can charge waves on it. I got these photo’s from the Photographer Dane Petersen’s website and if i read correctly it was taken during their time together shooting Thomas Campbell’s movie The Present.
you can read more about my interest in, and exploration with, wooden bodyboards (alaia’s & paipo’s) here:
