The Way It Makes You Feel
08 . 03 . 15
One of the really special things about sharing what we do through our workshop courses is the fact that we almost inevitably form new friendships. It’s really lovely when, several weeks or months after helping somebody to build their own surfboard, bellyboard or handplane, we get a postcard through the letterbox or an e-mail with some photos attached, with stories of where friends are riding their new surfboards and how much they’re enjoying them; it gives us an enormous sense of fulfilment.
Last Saturday we ran a bellyboard and handplane shaping workshop, and it was so nice to receive an e-mail on Monday from one of the attendees, SAS raffle prize winner Hero Selwood, telling us how much she had enjoyed her day. We’ve received complimentary reviews and testimonials in the past, but we felt that this one really encapsulated the joy of making and appreciating the results of your own handiwork beyond the end result.
