PRIVATE SURFBOARD SHAPING COURSE (Instruction Only) $395

In our private surfboard shaping course, you will work one-on-one with a professional surfboard shaper to turn a rough surfboard blank into a beautiful, functional surfboard! Along the way, you’ll learn important shaping techniques as well as how to use a variety of tools. By the end of the course, you’ll have created a custom hand-shaped surfboard that’s ready to be glassed.

Each lesson is completed in approximately 4 hours and includes 1 or 2 short breaks.
