hi everyone,

i will hold another hollow wooden surfboard workshop.

Date will be at the end of march, 30.03.-01.04. The location will be the Bridge Boathouse in Richmond near London. http://www.richmondbridgeboathouses.co.uk/
We calculate the price as £250+£35/foot and that includes tuition and all the material you need to construct the shape of your choice. (Plywood stringer+Frames, Paulownia, Cedar, Glues, Epoxy)
After the three days of workshop you'll have a board that only needs final sanding and laminating.

have a look here for well tested shapes: http://treetosea.org/richs-template-shop/ or here for pictures from past workshops: arbosurfboards.blogspot.com

if you want to secure a place i need a deposit of £50 and at least two weeks prior to the workshop you have to let me know what board you want to build so i can prepare material.

for questions or to sign up get in touch.

Do you have any other workshops planned in the UK / London? too late notice to join but sounds like something good to do in the future
