From 17-22 April 2017 I’ll be in Durban for a workshop that will share the stoke that comes with building and surfing your own wooden surfboard.

Those participating in the Durban wooden surfboard workshop walk away from the course with their own handcrafted and very beautiful hollow wooden surfboard.

Anyone interested can sign up for the scheduled six-day workshop option where you start out with a pile of planks and finish up with a one-of-a-kind wooden surfboard. If you don’t have the time for six days, don’t worry – then there is a three-day option that still gets you a wooden surfboard.

The workshop takes builders through all the theoretical and practical aspects of building a wooden surfboard. We 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.

For more information, please visit the following page where you’ll find details of available boards, costs, and a gallery of previous workshop boards. Contact Patrick on 073 232 3043 or burnett.patrick@gmail.com for bookings.
