During our workshops, participants choose a style/size of board and build it over the course of three or seven days.

These workshops give the builders a great sense of confidence and satisfaction. Builders that were very self-conscious about their woodworking and construction skills have left the course ready to set up a shop at their homes and start building all kinds of different things. It fells really good to go out and catch waves on a board that you built. This is something that is experienced by a small percentage of surfers.

The workshops include all the materials and tools. The builder is guided step by step through the whole process. A familiarity with basic hand tools is all that is required. As a board builder you will be able to customize the top and bottom wood patterns on your board, as well as custom designs or artwork before glassing. Finbox sytems or glass ons are options on all boards. As well as the standard designs listed below we also offer custom designs and shapes.


"Being able to build a board from start to finish changed my knowledge of and connection with surfing."
Jay Kreway, Calgary AB

"Andy is the Yoda of woodworking with the patience of the Dali Lama, a perfect combination to guide anyone through building their own surfboard. Alternatively, the best indication of how fun it is to participate in a workshop is that after completion I immediately wanted to build another one."
Ian Kruger, Pemberton BC


In the three day work shop the builders build a board that is ready to be fiberglassed. The builder can then find someone to glass their board or have Lambrecht Surfboards glass it post workshop. Builders should be prepared to put in eight hours each day to ensure that their boards are finished on time.

An additional day is required if you are building an SUP.

In the seven day workshop the builders build a board that is ready to be surfed. The builder will construct the board and then glass it. Similar to the three day workshop the first three to four days are fairly intensive. The last three to four days have some breaks while we wait for resins to dry and harden.

10’ SUP $200
