From 20-25 February 2017 I’ll be back in the relaxed surf town of Cape St.Francis for a workshop that will share the stoke that comes with building and surfing your own wooden surfboard.
Those participating walk away from the course with their own handcrafted and very beautiful hollow wood 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 wood 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.
