Jordan - Slides hollow Alia

Alaia's are hard enogh to ride at the best of times and that sinking feeling is an ever present reality with such a little amount of float from such a thin piece of wood. Jordan has set about fixing this by chambering out the inside of a slightly thicker version to get you going with some float.
 Lots of time on the router to take out the unwanted wood and trap some air in there, as well as gets the weight down.
It makes a great piece of art
A 3mm veneer seals it all up
A couple of coats of marine epoxy to seal it all and toughen up the surface.If you have good joints you could save weight and use lanolin.
Even better if you have made this for a mate.
