1 Day Shaping Workshops

After years of holding 3 Day Workshops, we are introducing 
1 Day Shaping Workshops.
You start with a pre made Blank, made by us, then we teach you have to shape and create your very own Wooden Surfboard. Similar to the way a conventional surfboard is made, but it's not fibreglassed when finished.
These are aimed at the person who does not have time to come to a 3 Day Building and Shaping Workshop, but still wants to make themselves a Wooden Surfboard.

Check out the website for dates.
