Uproxx Presents: Jon Wegener and The Hawaiian Style Alaia

John Wegener

John Wegener

Jon Wegener’s handcrafted alaia (Ah-LIE-ah) boards pay homage to surfings early days — reaching all the way back to the sport’s Polynesian roots.

He’s a craftsman, open to new ideas while being reverent of the old ways. Every board he shapes is a reminder that surfing is about more than contests or chasing sponsorships, it’s about pursuing joy.

The following two tabs change content below.
Growing up in New Jersey, Shawn discovered and quickly immersed himself in the sub-culture of surfing and skateboarding in the mid 80’s. With a diverse and eclectic background, Shawn has walked the path of a competitive surfer, Hare Krsna monk, action sports industry player in NYC, DIY theology and religions major, and a touring punk rock musician. Now a father and self-proclaimed seeker of the “soul” of surfing, Shawn enjoys sessions with friends at uncrowded peaks along his home state’s shoreline and writing about his surf related experiences.
