We will be announcing our 2022 workshop dates shortly.

In this 5-6 day Build your own surfboard workshop, we guide you through every step in the process of building a wood-veneered Predn surfboard.

We use a mix of super light-weight materials and natural fibre reinforcements, so your finished creation will be a high-performance, robust eco-board that you'll have crafted with your own hands.

Choose from a wide range of shapes and sizes, or go custom. The blanks will be ready for your arrival, ready to start work. Our method combines tradition with innovation, and all tools, materials, safety equipment and workshop space will be provided.

You should be comfortable using sanders, glassing and hand tools, and mixing resins - though full training and guidance will be provided every step of the way.

This is a fairly intensive course, but also a once-in-a-lifetime experience where you get to create something beautiful and unique, and form new bonds along the way. All our tutors are in-house shapers who love what they do and love to share that with you.

We only take two trainees at a time, to ensure each participant receives our full attention. Bookings must be made at least one month in advance, with the full amount to be paid up front. An 85% refund will be given for any cancellations made up to a week before the workshop.

Accommodation is not included in the course, so make sure to arrange this in good time. With some great surf spots nearby and an indoor climbing wall just next door, there's plenty to enjoy in your down time. 

Workshop schedule:
Day 1: Arrive at the workshop in the morning for meet and greet. Quick health and safety briefing and workshop tour. Then on to glassing the base of your surfboard. 
Day 2: Glue the wood veneer onto the deck of the board. 
Day 3 (the longest day): Paint all the rails, add any artwork, fit fin boxes and glass the deck, all in one day. But don't worry, we're here to make sure it all goes smoothly.
Day 4: Final layer of glass goes onto the base, plus all the hot coats (final resin layers).
Day 5-6 (as needed): Sanding and polishing, refining your board to make it shipshape and shiny, ready to be surfed!
