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
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.
Where to Stay
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.
