We really should call this the surf board building school. Since 2003 we have been teaching individuals to build their own boards. For nearly the price of a new board you start with a raw blank and learn the techniques in shaping, glassing and sanding. This is not a group course. Your instructor will work one on one with you.After your class, we invite you to come back to the shop with no bay rental charge and start building on your own.
Essence Surf now offers a variety of services to individuals and buisinesses in the surfboard indusrty. Since we are the manufacturers we offer a full range of custom boards as well as options for individuals or stores to offer their own custom lines.
For other builders we offer glassing, machining and shipping services.
