Description

Youth Paipo Workshop

In this workshop students will design and build their own Paipo a traditional Hawaiian wooden surf craft for prone riding of waves big and small. The workshop begins with lumber selection and layout of cedar planks before gluing up the blank. Once the blank is glued up, students will design, trace and cut out their outline and use hand tools for shaping contours and concaves. Next step is sanding, adding artwork and a wipe-on finish. The Paipo will be ready to ride by weeks end!

Over the course of the workshop, students will learn safe use of traditional hand tools, construction techniques, woodshop etiquette and environmental responsibility.

Weather permitting, we will take breaks and walk a few blocks south to Indian Wells beach (lifeguard on duty). This half-day workshop is limited to 8 students ages 9 and up. Each student should bring a water bottle, sunscreen and towel.
