Surfboard mak’n

In the South of France (Biarritz) making a surfboard by hand at Shaper House. It starts with a computer design. I designed a ‘fish’ (type of surfboard shape). The shape gets printed to paper and then taped together to get the curves for the front and back.

Then a ‘blank’ is chosen within which the design can be cut. You cut it out and then shape it using a variety of processes and tricks. All by hand. It has been great fun… 2 more days to go and I’ll have a finished board! photos below..warning, contains rare photos of Adam in the wild…
