What you'll do

We're opening the door to the little-known world of surfboard shaping! In this 4.5 hours class we'll go through all the steps for designing and shaping a surfboard together. After a quick intro on the must-know design principles, we'll get into the mesmerizing practice of sculpting a surfboard from a foam blank. Whether you'd rather stand back and take notes or get your hands dirty, we'll make sure you get out with the confidence and knowledge to shape your own board at home :)

I grew up in a surf town near Biarritz in France. I carried my passion for shaping with me when I moved to Venice, meeting a very inspiring community of shapers and getting better and better. I moved from the traditional surfboard shaping to creating experimental boards, like asymmetrical or finless, always trying to push the limit of originality and performance.
