From the Gold Coast Bulletin:

A SURFING competition with “new” wooden surfboards is coming to the Gold Coast.

The inaugural Surf Rider Foundation Eco Challenge will be held at Tugun Surf Life Saving Club this month as part of Bleach Festival to promote sustainable coastal lifestyles.

The competition is open to surfers wanting to ride surfboards only recently brought out from history books — the ancient Hawaiian alaia.

Despite being used for hundreds of years, the board was forgotten in the 20th century because, at no thicker than 24mm and without fins, it was thought it could not angle across a wave.
