Surfboard Workshop


Since 2010 we’ve helped over two hundred people to make their own wooden surfboards, and our workshop courses are far and away our favourite weeks every year.

Over five days, you’ll build the surfboard 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.

(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 Surfboard

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.

Every surfboard workshop is filmed and edited to capture memories from the week, so our workshoppers can enjoy and share their once-in-a-lifetime experience with friends and family.

The raw materials for your surfboard will have been prepped before you start (the noisy, dusty bits), so your job is to construct your surfboard and shape it. We then take it a short distance up the road to the best surfboard laminator in the UK, who finishes your surfboard ready to be splashed in the sea. 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 surf.

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.
