Jan 032019
 

2019 is the sixth straight year I’ve been running wooden surfboard workshops and I’m looking forward to meeting new people and seeing the beautiful surfboards that they make. I’m stunned at the surfboards people make, no matter whether they are a novice or experienced woodworker. Seeing someone’s beautiful and functional work of art take shape leaves me thrilled.

The dates for 2019 are below. Workshop sizes are limited to 2-3 people to ensure the highest quality boards. Please give me a call on 073 232 3043 or email burnett.patrick@gmail.com to book.

The workshop page on this website, available through this link, also has a wealth of information on the process, board shapes and prices, and check out this gallery for pictures of completed surfboards.

The wooden surfboard workshops take participants through all the aspects of building a wood surfboard. The workshops look at the different types of timber, the environmental aspects and the design dynamics underpinning wood surfboards. This is combined with the practical process of crafting a surfboard from a pile of planks into a one-of-a-kind work of art that can be surfed. It’s an immersive experience in surfing and the craft associated with riding waves.
