MAKE YOUR OWN BOARD in an immersive 4 day course in Bali with shaper Nigel Annesley.
DAY 1: Shaping
Day One starts with the basics of surfboard design. We'll introduce you to the shaping bay environment and introduce the tools and techniques employed in this craft as well as the safety. We will lead you through planning the shapes & design, the intricacies of bottom contours, rockers, nose, tail, deck and rail shapes. We will discuss fin and plug installation, including various theories around fin positioning on different boards, and how their placement may affect performance.
Prior to your trip, you would hop on phone call with us and discuss the details of the board you’d like to shape; what you’ve been riding, what you hope to achieve with a new shape so that everything will be prepared before this date.
DAY 2: Glassing
We will proceed to the glassing stage on day two where we will cover every step of the glassing process. You will learn how to dress the board with fiberglass cloth and mixing the resin and laminating your board.
Day 3: Sanding & Finishing
This will be the final day in the factory. You will learn each step of the critical finishing process; achieving a perfect finish & effectively sanding off your board to achieve a smooth and hydrodynamic finish.
Day 4: Surf!
Today is the day where you get to test your new creation out in the surf! We will have a videographer with you and your board, getting all the waves you will catch with your new magic board.
