Build a Custom Wooden Surfboard
Six days over three weekends: 20-21 January, 17-18 February & 17-18 March
10am-4pm, Chicken Shed Studios, Schumacher College
£1,200, materials included. Glassing and polishing service optional for an additional £300
With Harry Robinson and Alen van Rooyen
Build your own dream surfboard with the boys from Lignum Surfboards, who are passionate about creating fine, handcrafted wooden surfboards.
Over six days you will learn about the components, shapes, profiles and contours of surfboards and how they work together to give you a great ride. You will walk away with a beautiful hollow wooden surfboard designed just for you and worthy of being displayed as a piece of art. The boards will be crafted from sustainably sourced English cedar.
Alen and Harry work in a manner that harmoniously blends traditional carpentry techniques with the precision that modern technologies offer. Before the course starts you will work with the tutors to decide on a design. They will then make a 3D computer model of your design to develop the framework. Using their CNC machine they will cut out the framework, and on day one you will be given your framework and materials for your board.
Over three or four sessions you will assemble the components of the boards. By the fourth or fifth session you will start sanding, readying the board for glassing. Here you can decide whether you would like to attempt to glass and polish your board, or pay an additional £300 for Alen and Harry to do this for you in their workshop.
