We offer monthly workshops in our studio in Lisbon and outside in Europe.
Surf the board you made with your hands.
During 3 full days you will learn how to build your own wooden surfboard from start to finish. The shapes can be 100% customized.
No particular skills are needed. During those 3 days you will learn about:
the use of specific woodworking tools.
the art of surfboard design and shaping
the software used to design the boards.
Because of the long curing times we can't glass the surfboard during the workshop. We propose two options:
either you take it home after the workshop and glass it by yourself if you have some DIY skills, we will provide a video tutorial explaining the glassing technique and the easiest ways to get the material.
or we glass it for you during the three weeks following the workshop: in Lisbon or by an independent glasser if the workshop is abroad.
Check our agenda to find future workshops and their location. Private classes are also possible. And if you think you could host a workshop please contact us. What we need is a roof, around 60 sqm of surface and electricity.
