As the final quarter of 2019 approaches, I have a handful of places available in the October, November and December wooden surfboard workshops that I run. The workshops – where you handcraft your own beautiful and surfable work of art starting from a pile of planks – take five days. The scheduled dates are 21-25 October 2019, 11-15 November 2019 and 2-6 December 2019.
The last weekend workshop for the foreseeable future will also be taking place. Take five Saturdays to build your own board on 19 October and the 2, 9, 16 and 23 November.
Making a wooden surfboard is an opportunity to reconnect with your hands and make a long-lasting, functional work of art. The process engages surfing’s history, alternative and more sustainable surfboard construction methods, and learning about surfboard design.
You don’t need DIY or woodworking experience to join one of my wooden surfboard workshops. We’ve devised a programme that everyone can follow. Both ladies and gents are welcome. Participants build their own board (it won’t be done for you).
Burnett Wood Surfboards has been running workshops for six years and hundreds of people have made stunning wooden surfboards. It’s a soul-level experience! Just have a look at the gallery below for proof.
