In November I’m planning a board building workshop in Woodstock, meaning that for guys in central Cape Town and the Northern Suburbs I’ll be on your doorstep.
3 and 5 day workshops will be available and you can attend during the day or evening. So if you want to build your own magnificent wooden surfboard, please email firstname.lastname@example.org More information on the courses can be found on the courses page of this website.
The venue will be The PopUp Woodstock, which is as 2 Frere Street Woodstock and very close to central Cape Town. Dates are not finalised but we are looking at 16-21 November as provisional dates. However, if you have a preference, please let me know and I may be able to adapt.
What anyone who attends one of my courses gets is the experience of crafting your own unique wooden surfboard from a pile of planks. For most people, it’s a once-in-a-lifetime experience. You’ll be able to surf it, show it off and there won’t be another board like it anywhere on the planet because each piece of wood that nature makes is uniquely different. It’s a process of engrossing yourself in the beauties of wood and at the same time making something with the beautiful curves of good surfboard design meant to harness the energy of a breaking wave. As someone who has been making these boards for nearly a decade and knows all the pitfalls and mistakes that can be made, I’m the ultimate resource to help you avoid common mistakes and make something that you’ll be proud of for life.
