Paddleboard Workshop


We love our surfboard making workshop weeks so much, we wanted to find a way to offer them to those for whom paddleboarding is their main passion. Whilst we custom make our exploration paddleboards to order due to their size and complexity, you can get hands-on and make yourself one of our cruiser paddleboard models on a five-day course.

Over the week, you’ll build the paddleboard of your choosing alongside a maximum of two other people, with us guiding you through each step of the process. No previous experience or aptitude for making is necessary; we break everything down into bite-size chunks and support you at all times.

Customise your Experience


If it is, you don’t need to select any of the options.
We’ll post you a gift certificate to give to the lucky person and then they can make all their preferred choices by using the account that we’ll create for them.

This is so we know who’s name to put at the top of the gift certificate that we’ll post to you. We’ll create your recipient an account so they can log-on and select their preferred workshop options.

(Optional) – We’ll write this message onto the certificate that we’ll post to you :)

(Optional) – Only pick one if you know of the specific date they will be able to join us, if not, select choose later and they can pick a date that suits them.

or Commission Your Paddleboard

Day One – Cut out the frame and glue to the bottom skin.

Day Two – Build up the rail strips as far as we can.

Day Three – Big Wednesday. Finishing the rails, fitting nose, tail and fin blocks, prepping the board for the deck and getting the deck skin glued down.

Day Four – Lose yourself with the shaping tools and rough out your surfboard’s shape.

Day Five – Finishing the shaping, sanding and signing off your surfboard. High fives and hugs all round.

If you need somewhere to stay for the week, here are a few ideas for local campsites, B&Bs and self catered accommodation

If you struggle to find anywhere, you can always drop us an email and we’ll help if we can.

If we haven’t quite managed to answer your question, it might be on our FAQ page, or pop it in an email and we’ll get back to you.

The raw materials for your paddleboard will have been prepped before you start (the noisy, dusty bits), so your job is to construct your board and shape it. We then take it a short distance up the road to the best laminator in the UK, who finishes your board ready to be splashed in the water. To round things off, we can either work out delivery for your board or you can come and collect it and join us for a paddle.

If you find yourself unsure of any of the options above, we are more than happy to organise a phone or zoom call to help guide your choice to get the board that is best for you. Just email us and we’ll line something up!

Or, you can always just book the date you’d like, and we’ll be in touch to figure out the rest.
