COURSE DESCRIPTION

Jon Wegener, friend and famed finless guru, joins us each year for two days of shaping, surfing and sipping beers as he leads a class at our shop. For two (usually) glorious autumn days under Jons watchful eye, Jon shares not only the secrets that help you create your own finless masterpiece but also his own uniquely expressed pearls of wisdom. Since we put this class right before our beach demo and party on Saturday Sept 16th, stick around and make a long weekend out of it. Jon's one of the most genuine and interesting people we know, and his work-hard/play-hard ethos always makes this workshop a special occasion.

WHAT YOU GET

Students will have their choice of building a paipo or alaia (both are finless boards made from solid Paulownia). Each student takes home his/her own board, shaped, sanded, coated and ready to use. The cost of all materials and supplies are included in the course as is the use of all of the tools needed and access to the shop. We also throw in a practically-gourmet breakfast and lunch each day. Students are responsible for their own dinner costs as well as accommodations, although we’re happy to recommend some nice places around the area.

WHAT YOU LEARN

Jon Wegener and one of our instructors will be available to guide students through the process to ensure that each board that leaves the shop will be a beautiful one-of-a-kind finless creation.

We'll learn basic finless design concepts, elements of edge tool work, proper sanding techniques, plus the application of stains (if desirable) and finishes.
