Essence Surf's Shaping School:

With over 10 years of teaching experience Essence Surf welcomes you into our shop to work one on one with Surreal-G as you build your board from start to finish. Held to the highest standard of building we want your first board to be as good as anything you would purchase in a shop. After your classes we invite you back into the shop with NO bay rental cost, and continue to build and learn with the rest of us. Essence Surf's philosophy is based on a group dynamic where we share ideas and experience so surfers can enjoy building their own boards for the rest of their lives.

We offer not only a start to finish course for the beginner, but also advanced courses in the areas of glassing, artwork, sanding and CNC Design.
