DIY Wakesurf Board Workshop


Build Your Own DIY Wakesurf Board

Want to learn how to build your own custom wakesurf board?

Join us at the Shore Boards workshop for a DIY Wakesurf Workshop this Winter!

Our 4-night course is designed to unlock your creativity, and allow for you to build the board of your dreams! With no prior experience necessary, we will guide you through each step to ensure you leave with a board you are truly proud of. 

Our class starts with you choosing from a variety of premium materials like Cedar & Paulownia. From there, we will guide you to design, frame, and finish your masterpiece. We even allow for you to provide us with personalized artwork that we can laser into the board! How cool is that?

This course will be limited to 5 students per session to ensure everyone gets plenty of guidance throughout the entire process. At the end of our DIY workshop, you will walk away with the board of your dreams and an experience you will never forget!

Our DIY Wakesurf Board Workshop

Using Shore Boards’ tried & true techniques we’ll guide you each step of the way which will ensure the final product will be something you’ll be extremely proud of!

This 4-night course will take place on Monday & Tuesday nights over 2 consecutive weeks during the Winter Abyss. What else you going to do when it’s -20 degrees outside?

During our course, you will pick your wood, design your board, frame it, and do most of the finishing. The only thing you don’t do is the epoxy coating as this has to be done perfectly to ensure proper performance of the board you just worked so hard to make.

Once this is finished, we will ship the board for you to enjoy! 

By the end of the 4-night course you’ll have built your own hollow wood Wakesurf board! Congrats!!
