Grain Surfboard Building Course 5th-8th April 2014

grain-surfboard-build-class.jpg

In spring 2014, Grain Surfboards is bringing their four-day surfboard building class to the UK. The course will be hosted by Fyne Boat Kits at our workshop in the Lake District, 3 miles from Kendal. Tuition will be provided by the expert board builders from Grain, who are coming to the UK especially to run this course.

Students will learn to build their own wooden surfboard using methods devised by the builders at Grain Surfboards. Please note that this class is not intended for aspiring commercial board builders – we just want to share with surfers the great feeling of building your own board.

The course costs £1400 including VAT. This includes the materials to build whichever of the Grain surfboard kits you choose: you do not need to buy the surfboard kit as well.

I can confirm that the cost of the course does include the surfboard kit of your choice from our range.  In the four days it is unlikely that the board will be completely finished but the complicated parts will be: you will probably have to apply all or some of the fabric at home but the shape should have been achieved before you leave.

The materials supplied will be that which are included in the kit: you will not have to purchase any additional items, such as epoxy and fabric, but you may want to customise the board with items that you can purchase separately.  VAT is of course included in the price.

Please note the deadline for applying for a place.
