wood surfboard workshopIn a five-night evening workshop last week, four stoked guys built four beautiful hollow wooden surfboards in a Burnett Wood Surfboards pop-up wooden surfboard building workshop.

Working out of the graffiti-covered PopUp Gallery in Frere Street Woodstock, we started at 6pm every evening and finished up by 9pm. The boards started out as a pile of planks, but by the time Friday came around had been made into three fish and one longboard. We used locally grown wood and bio-resin, making these the most sustainable surfboards available on the market today.

It’s now back to our regular full-time workshop in Scarborough, but we’ll be back in Cape Town central for another evening course over the dates 22-27 August 2016. Evening courses mean no leave from work, so if you’re keen to sign up then drop me an email on burnett.patrick@gmail.com or call me on 073 232 3043. For more information, you can also have a look at the courses page on this website.

Standby for pictures of the finished boards from the workshop as they begin to come out of the glassing process.
