In this 5-7 day Build your own surfboard workshop, we guide you through every step in the process of building a 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 normally only take two trainees at a time, to ensure each participant receives our full attention. If there are more, there will be more teachers/instructors. Bookings must be made at least one month in advance, with the full amount to be paid up front. A 60% refund can be given for any cancellations made up to 4 weeks after the booking is made. However dates can be fully flexible, with no extra charge.
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.
