Shaping School™ was created by Shaper Supply Co to offer introductory surfboard shaping lessons to the general public. No longer do you have to go through the difficult task of finding a seasoned mentor and years of sweeping up floors to get in a shaping bay. For nearly the price of a brand new production board, Shaping School™ provides the student with all the materials, tools, and live instruction necessary to create a surfboard. Upon completion, the surfboard you shaped is yours to keep, and the lesson provides you the ability to shape additional surfboards on your own.
Shaper Supply Co's state-of-the-art surfboard manufacturing facility allows you to personally work with experienced shapers to shape a surfboard from start to finish. Unlike the learning curve in becoming and experienced surfer, a high-end surfboard can be shaped the first time with our oversight. Student and instructor will work one-on-one through all phases of the
design and construction of a surfboard, using both traditional and
modern tools, techniques and materials.
We have learned that there is nothing more rewarding than entering the water with a personally hand-built board. This, to us, is truly the essence of the surfing experience. With all the mass production of surfboards on the rise Shaping School™ wishes to keep tradition alive by teaching individuals how to craft their own surfboards. We are passionate about surfcraft and want to inspire you to shape a functional, high-end surfboard. Shaping your own board and then surfing it is one of the best experiences you can have, and this will open the way to for you to enjoy the rewards of creating your own surfboards.
