Hey, what you are doing is so cool, just love the idea that one can craft his own surfboard. This is the third staging of this Europro Tour event, returning once again to the glamorous and beautiful Concra Wood Golf Club, in Castleblayney, Co. The course was designed by Alister MacKenzie, the renowned golf course Architect, and Architect of Augusta, the home of the US Masters, Cypress Point, Royal Melbourne and many other well known courses.Although the course at Hadley Wood pre-dates Augusta by 10 years, many of the features which make the Masters such a challenge to even the finest of golfers, are evident in its design. Located near Farnborough Airport, Southwood can be easily located on Iveley Road with ample on-site parking. In a five-night evening workshop last week, four stoked guys built four beautiful hollow wooden surfboards in a Burnett Wood Surfboards pop-up wooden surfboard building workshop.

TAKE THE DROP ON A WOODEN BOARD: Build your own hollow wooden surfboard in 2016 by signing up for a course with Burnett Wood Surfboards. 2016 will be the fourth year that I’m offering wooden surfboard building courses where participants build their own hollow wooden surfboards and there are some exciting additions to the line-up.
In addition to my regular Cape Town wooden surfboard building course, I’ll be running courses in Durban and Cape St.


Secondly, during 2016 I’ll be running courses at my Scarborough workshop, but will also be hosting regular courses in Woodstock so that it is easier for people in central Cape Town and the Northern Suburbs of Cape Town to attend. Thirdly, in addition to the popular hollow wooden surfboard course builds, people can also sign up for the day-long course to build their own bodysurfing hand plane.
I have not made any price increases this year, despite the escalating costs of a number of materials. For more information, check out my courses page for more information and have a look at the gallery of some of the boards made on the courses that I’ve been running since 2013.
As someone who has been making these boards for nearly a decade and knows all the pitfalls and mistakes that can be made, I’m the ultimate resource to help you avoid common mistakes and make something that you’ll be proud of for life. That’s the official number of people that I can accommodate for wood surfboard courses between now and the end of the year, so if you want to build your own beautiful hollow wood surfboard then check out the courses page on my website and get in touch about booking your place. We look at the different types of timber, the environmental aspects and the design dynamics underpinning wood surfboards. It’s not essential that you have DIY or woodworking experience (although this is a plus) as we’ve devised a programme that everyone can follow.
Three-day courses: For people who would like the experience of building their own board, but have limited time. The area around our workshop has a number of great accommodation options, many with stunning sea and mountain views or within walking distance of beaches.
Choose the dates that suit you, build your board over six or three days, or make it on consecutive Saturdays.

Choose the dates that suit you, build your board over six or three days, or make it on consecutive Saturdays. Bodysurfing hand plane course option (one day) also available. For example, the fish shape would be at the lower end of the scale (R7,865), while the longboard would be at the highest. A 5% EARLY BIRD REGISTRATION IS AVAILABLE FOR BOOKINGS MADE (AND DEPOSITS PAID) THREE MONTHS IN ADVANCE.

I had a master craftsman to guide me, If you surf or even if you don’t, the challenge is a good one and I can highly recommend it. My workshop is on the property of Good Hope Nursery, which is outside Scarborough in Cape Town and on the road to Cape Point.
It will be screened around the world via Sky Sports, but you can easily drive up to Castleblayney and enjoy some great golf and some of the best scenery in the country. It is well worth your time to visit this wonderful golf course, see what all the fuss is about and watch some of the stars of tomorrow.


Our Golf Shop also stocks everything you could need whether beginner, experienced, young or old. The boards started out as a pile of planks, but by the time Friday came around had been made into three fish and one longboard. Francis to meet requests from guys that want to build their own board but can’t get away to Cape Town. In addition, the 5% discount that I had last year for bookings made three months in advance is still in place. It’s something I would never have predicted when I started making wood boards in my garage in 2007.
From the beginning, I have been stoked to see other people build their own surfboards and see their creativity and innate hand skill come to life through the construction of beautiful wood surfboard shapes. You can sign up for scheduled six-day or three-day wood surfboard courses or if you can’t make these dates you can arrange to come and build a board on dates that suit you in a one-on-one environment. This is combined with the practical process of crafting a surfboard from a pile of planks into a one-of-a-kind work of art that can be surfed.
You’ll be able to surf it, show it off and there won’t be another board like it anywhere on the planet because each piece of wood that nature makes is uniquely different. See below for details on the next course or click here to read a blog post about how it works.. While Burnett Wood Surfboards does not directly arrange accommodation, we can provide contact details for establishments where our clients have previously stayed and returned positive reports. You can give a certificate for someone to attend a course and build their own surfboard or the certificate can be for a custom surfboard to be built for them. We used locally grown wood and bio-resin, making these the most sustainable surfboards available on the market today.
I’m really excited about taking the wooden surfboard courses to different locations and meeting a whole bunch of new people. You’ll be able to surf it in the ocean and there won’t be another board like it anywhere on the planet because each piece of wood is uniquely different. It’s a process of engrossing yourself in the beauties of wood and at the same time making something with the beautiful curves of good surfboard design meant to harness the energy of a breaking wave. Participants build their own board (it won’t be done for you), under expert assistance, so you must be prepared to do a degree of work.
If you choose a fin box system, the boxes of your chosen system are included, but we will not supply fins unless be prior arrangement. Its a process of engrossing yourself in the beauties of wood and at the same time making something with the beautiful curves of good surfboard design, meant to harness the energy of a breaking wave.
