in 2007 i went to the Mentawai forest to shape my first Alaia with the Sikerei tribe.
With shaping tips from Tom wegener,I found a fallen tree that seemed similar enough to polownia,cut a slice and starting shaping with a axe, a machete and local small knife. 80 % of the board was shaped with those tools and i finished the rest on my boat ''SCAME''
I always wanted to get some footage of that amazing experience so 4 years later with more Alaia shaping experience i brought back my original board with a new template and reshaped it.
To get to this tribe you have to go 4 hours up river and walk an hour in the jungle and its the closest family to civilization.
This is the second episode of SALTED MEMOIR'S.
Enjoy
