New Shaping Courses

We are now pleased to offer our new Shaping Courses at the Surfboard Studio. These are perfect for those of you that want to have a crack at shaping your own surfboard design from a foam blank and want to leave the glassing/sanding/ fin installation stages to the experts.  They also take a lot less time than the full Make Your Own Board Courses so will suit those of you that have less flexibility with time.

These Shaping Courses are primarily designed for people with no previous shaping experience and focus on detailed instruction of shaping and design principles. You will learn from our experienced, professional instructors how to shape a surfboard from a foam blank. In doing so, the course covers all aspects of surfboard design, the shaping bay, tool selection and safety, rough shaping, rail design, fine-tuning, and finish-sanding.

The shaping course requires approximately 4 hours total depending on the shape you intend to make.  Usually we will run this course over 1 session (but it may extend into a second for more labor intensive designs)

We are now please to regularly offer these Shaping courses at the surfboard studio.

These Shaping Courses costs $495 per person and includes all the materials, tuition and equipment to shape yourself a surfboard out of a foam blank.

To enroll yourself in one of these courses head over to our BOOKINGS page.

*On request we can also do this course to suit your schedule (over a morning, afternoon, evening, holiday – you decide) – to do this we will require you to organize & book a group of 4-8 people.  Contact for more details.
