Shaper

Shape a Surfboard with Shaper Studios

Any "maker" can be a "shaper", so to prove it the fine folks at Shaper Studios rigged up a portable shaping bay and are bringing it to the EXPO to teach a shaping workshop. Surprisingly, they teach a lot of people to shape who don’t actually surf. So this isn't just limited to surfers. This is an interactive introduction to surfboard shaping. You'll get hands-on shaping experience without the cost of shaping your own surfboard. The board you help shape will be glasses and auctioned off to raise funds for charity.

What you'll learn

Intro to Surfboard Shaping: Shape Planning / Template Making / Outline / Rocker / Thickness / Foil / Rails / Concave / Polishing / Fin Placement

Supplies

Tools, safety glasses, drinks, lunch, notebooks, a hand-died tie die Shaper Studios t-shirt, pens, and good vibes are included in ticket price. You'll need to bring closed toe-shoes, clothes to get dusty in, and a hungry mind.
