From 18-23 April 2016, Burnett Wood Surfboards will be moving to the Cape Town city centre to run both an evening hollow wood surfboard building course and a one-day bodysurfing handplane course.
The evening wooden surfboard building course enables folk who want to work with their hands and build a beautiful, functional surfboard to do so without having to take leave.
Participants will work with beautiful wood, crafting their own surfboard from a pile of planks through to the finished wooden shape.
In the process they will learn about the age-old history of wood and surfing, the environmental aspects of wooden surfboard building and surfboard shaping generally. It’s a real opportunity for surfers to discover the joy of making something with their hands.
The handplane course also offers the opportunity to make a functional and beautiful surfcraft out of wood, albeit in one day as opposed to the five evenings of the surfboard course.
Participants will learn about the enjoyment of bodysurfing, the design dynamics that underpin handplanes and the pleasure of shaping something out of wood. Participants walk away with their own self-crafted handplane.
Places are limited so anyone interested should book without delay through contacting Patrick on firstname.lastname@example.org or 073 232 3043
