Your level of surfing, your size & weight, your surfing objectifs, your desired model, designand deco are taken into account in this custom , one-to-one training
All the techniques of shaping, glazing and sanding will be presented to you (nevertheless, the training focuses on the shaping while the other steps are just introduiced to you briefly)
The days are dense, approximately 6 hours of activities per day. Surfing sessions with Kevin Olsen might occur during the working days depending on the forecast : it is a good opportunity for the shaper trainer to assess your surfing level and comprehend better your expectations.
Instruction in shaping is a private course.
The goal remains that you take pleasure in making your own surfboard and become enriched with the basics knowledge of shaping.
We organize in parallel an optionnal workshop on the glassing and the sanding
Complementary workshop on glassing and sanding ( extra - 300 €)
This workshop comes on top of the shaper workshop, as the comprehension of all the manufacturing phases require to take more time for detailed explainations for a better instruction
Learn to repair a surfboard, learn to glass, learn to sand involve techniques, products and tools that cannot been taught quickly throught the shaping workshop
It is best to plan to take 7 day, as the surfing with Kevin Olsen may occur during the weekend as we never know what the forecast would be
