Mathieu, Elo and Leon, One of the coolest surf family we know!

2024 was the Ducros family's third trip to ALAIA. Normally they visit Early season in February, for this year they decided to visit us in April.

Their first trip to Alaia was right before there craziness of the pandemic, Leon was still small and not really into surfing yet.

Now, he is 15 years old, and rips like his father and has all the style of his mother! (check shots of his turn below)

Another thing we love to talk with them is defiantly about "surf boards"

This family's surfboard collections are always cool. Every year they bring something new and interesting. Longboard, Mid-Length Single, Twin, Shortboards. They ride basically everything that feels fun to ride!
