How Do I get Started?
Will my first board be surfable?
A little advice goes a long way. We strongly recommend taking the private shaping and glassing courses for the best possible experience in creating your first board. We work closely with you on your first board to ensure your board surfs they way you want it to.
What Are SHAPING LESSONS LIKE?
Our private shaping lessons are 1:1 or 1:2 of hands-on instruction. Plan to spend 6+ hours shaping your first board and can be split up into 2 or 3 sessions if necessary. Outlines, foils, rockers, contours, rails, and glassing prep are covered as well as safety, tools, and shop etiquette.
How does glassing work?
Glassing is included in your Surfboard Shaping Lesson. You may opt to glass it yourself if you have completed the Group Glassing Workshop or take a Private Glassing Lesson. We also offer in-house glassing services for members and outside shapers. Email us to inquire.
