The Surfboard Studio now have October & November openings for their Make Your Own Surfboard Courses live! Don’t miss out – if you want to make yourself a fresh sled for summer, make sure you get yourself into one of these courses.
In these ‘make your own board courses’, for close to the price of a brand new production board, they provide students with all of the materials, tools and personal instruction necessary to create their own surfboard. Once finished, the surfboard you shaped is yours take home & most importantly ready to ride! The lessons that they provide give you with the knowledge & experience to shape additional surfboards on your own in the future. Opening up the opportunity for you to start experimenting with all the different elements of the shaping process. Unlike the learning curve in becoming an experienced surfer, a high-end surfboard can be shaped the first time with their expert oversight.
You begin with the basics elements of surfboard design, then progress onto the more subtle aspects of shaping and design: this includes plan shapes, bottom contours (concaves and channels), nose and tail rocker lines, deck shapes and rail shapes. They also help you become familiar with the shaping bay and all the tools and techniques of the craft.
From the shaping section of the course, you then go on to the glassing stage. This is where they teach you about all the various techniques and materials used in glassing a surfboard. You cut your own cloth, mixing your resin and then laminate your board. You then move on to fin and plug installation, including all the various different theories of fin positioning and performance. From there, the course will take you to the next stage in the laminating process before you finish and sand your board and get it in the water!
This course starts at $975 per person and is run over 4 x 4 hour sessions. These sessions will be run initially over Tuesday or Wednesday evenings 5pm – 9pm and Saturdays from 10am-2pm (depending on demand), requiring participants to attend one session per week over 4 consecutive weeks.
