For over 10 years we have been building and refining building techniques, we have helped hundreds of people create their own wooden surfboards, and today, we are a world reference in the area. I believe that this success was due, among many reasons, mainly to the "opening the game", passing the knowledge in full through ours " Surfboards Workshops".
Today, in addition to the face-to-face Workshops (organized in classes), and its virtual version, the "Online Workshop", we have launched the newest course in building sustainable surfboards - "Your Shaping Experience"
It's a private version of the beloved Workshops. Here you will have exclusives Shaping Lessons with me, David Weber.
Over 3 days, you'll create the board of your choice alongside up to two other people.
With the small number of participants, I can provide differentiated teaching, whether you want to live the experience of building your own board, or for you who are already a shaper, and want to explore the art of building sustainable boards to the fullest, totally private.
We have a list of recommended local accommodation, so if you need somewhere close-by to stay please contact us and we'll send it your way.
To make your registration, select the desired board, make the payment, and contact me here to schedule our Shaping Meeting.

The shape is the most important part of a surfboard. The Workshop is a practical Shaper course and aims to finalize the shape of your Wooden Surfboard. For the board to be ready to go into the water, lamination (glassing) and final finishing must be done. Processes common to conventional boards. Lamination costs are not included in the course fee.
The Workshop ends with the Shape Ready and the signature of the shaper (You).
To finish your board, you have the following options:
1- Finish it on your own (guided by the Online Course), without additional labor costs, and you will live the experience. You will spend with materials 250 reais. (around $50 USD)
2- Or you can take your board to a Shaper / Laminator in your city since this final part (glassing) is a common step for both, wooden and conventional surfboards.*
3- In Florianópolis, we have the option of leaving the board to finish with our reliable laminator.*
*In Brazil, this service (materials + labor) has a cost between 500 and 1000 reais. (around $100 to $200 USD). Depending on the size of the board.
"Your Shaping Experience" is a private version of our Surfboards Workshops.
Over 3 days, you’ll build the surfboard of your choosing alongside a maximum of two other people. No previous experience or aptitude for making is necessary.
