In this 4 day class students will learn the fundamentals of wooden paddleboard building. Each student will start with a preassembled frame kit ready for board construction. The students will build-up the rails from bead and cove strips, add a deck, install hardware and shape the board. By the end of the class each board will be ready for fiberglassing and finishing. Instruction and demonstration of the fiberglassing process as well as the required materials will be provided.
Instructor Chaz Corallo will guide students through the easy step-by-step process to ensure that each board that leaves the class will be a beautiful one-of-a-kind paddleboard that will last a lifetime. We will explore basic surfboard design concepts, the simple application of steam to manipulate wood into shapes, adhesive applications, elements of edge tool work and use of other traditional hand tools, glassing and effective use of epoxy. To streamline this class as much as possible, some initial prep work will be done by us before you arrive.
Each board building kit includes a preassembled frame kit, 12ft bead and cove strips, book matched cedar deck planks, fin box, vent leash plug, glue, 1 gallon epoxy and fiberglass cloth. All the materials needed for a complete board.
Friends or family of a student are welcome to participate in the class as a 2nd builder on the construction of a single kit. This is a great opportunity to learn and work together with the ability to bring the skills home for the construction of your next board. Joint instruction must be accompanied with someone taking the full instruction and purchasing a board kit.
