This week all three sets of trestles in the workshop have grown a surfboard, as Patrick, Pete and Claudio joined us to build their own. All in their twenties (although Pete clicked over into his thirties on Tuesday and didn’t hear the end of it), the boards that they chose to build reflect wonderfully the diversity of modern day surfing – Patrick built a 9’4” Seasaw, Pete a 6’4” Woodburner and Claudio a 5’10” Fetch.
These surfboards will see use on the coasts of Aberdeenshire in Scotland, North Devon and Costa Rica once they’ve been laminated and collected by their proud builders in a month’s time, just in time for the summer. The guys have all worked really hard in order to earn back a little bit of time to catch some waves on a couple of days this week, making the most of the good swell and nice weather that we’ve enjoyed in Cornwall.
