6-0 Thin Alaia

Here is the latest 6 foot, 5/8-inch thick alaia.  For  me, this is  the most succesful shape, as it paddles well and does not feel like you are trying to ride a 2x6. 

A deep single channel in the last 1/3 of  the board along with hard chined rails and some flat bottom sections work really well.  You almost forget that there is no fin!
