Coming up at the end of August and into September is the only chance available in 2017 to build your own beautiful wooden surfboard over a weekend. This is for everyone who has always wanted to do their own wooden surfboard but cannot take time off work.
The workshop will take place every Saturday from 26 August for six Saturdays, making the last Saturday of the workshop the 23 September. During the six days, participants will start out with a pile of planks, choose their shape and how they want the wood on their surfboard to look, and begin building it from scratch. They’ll shape the finished wooden structure and take it through to the finely finished wooden surfboard.
In the process, they’ll learn about the history and modern-day rejuvenation of wooden surfboards, about surfboard design elements such as shape, rocker and rails, the
Fish, egg, single fin, mini-malibu and longboard shapes are available to choose from.
This workshop will take place in my Scarborough workshop. Places are very limited and I only have two, possibly three, places so if you are keen please send me an email on firstname.lastname@example.org or give me a call on 073 232 3043.
