Shaper Supply, which opened its doors originally as a fiberglass, resin and materials supply shop in 2011, has offered surfboard shaping lessons since its inception. At the time of the company’s launch, shaping classes were starting to be offered in workshops around Australia and as an elective college course Cal Poly San Luis Obispo. With these services recently gaining popularity in Southern California, Shaper Supply has tailored its lesson to offer the best experience possible to the student.

Our one-one one lessons are given by highly skilled instructors who has shaped thousands of boards. Lesson prices are specifically designed as to not price-out local shapers, and in turn we put a lot more work into the shaping lessons then you would find anywhere else. This is not a shaping demo - our goal is to have the student shape over 90% of the board, and to do this our lessons run a minimum of 6 hours. Any type of glassing (resin tints, inlays, pinlines, etc.) is included in the price of the lesson and there are no additional unexpected costs.

Unlike the learning curve in becoming an experienced surfer, a high-end surfboard can be achieved the first time shaping with our oversight. Student and instructor work together through all phases of the design and construction of a surfboard, using both traditional and modern tools, techniques and materials. We are passionate about surf craft 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. After glassing, the board is yours to keep and the lesson provides you the ability to shape additional surfboards in our shaping bays on your own.
