PUBLIC SURFBOARD WORKSHOP


Learn to shape your own surfboard

Shaper Studios is a do-it-yourself surfboard workshop that is open to the public. Emerging from San Diego's progressive surf culture, Shaper Studios is a tribute to the original California surf shop. A place where surfboards are made and a clubhouse for local surfers. 

Our one-on-one shaping lesson will teach you all the fundamentals of surfboard design and shaping. From choosing an outline to fine-tuning your rails, one of our friendly instructors will show you the ropes and introduce you to the craft of shaping surfboards. You’ll be hooked. A shaping lesson takes 4-6 hours and can be broken down into 2-3 sessions. Once you have taken your shaping lesson and are comfortable with the process, become a member and have unlimited access the workshop.
