What you'll do

This is a personalized private surfboard shaping Experience! Within 5 days, you’ll have and be able to ride your own personally shaped custom board!

Upon booking, I will contact you to discuss your requirements for shaping your personal dream board. We will talk about skill levels and volume requirements. I will then design a rough cut pre shape and have it waiting for you at our shaping studio. We will also design a custom logo for your board, making it truly unique!

On the day of the Experience, we will meet at my house overlooking the ocean and some great waves. We'll enjoy a beverage and talk shop - shaping, CAD design, boards, and surf. From here, we'll head to our shaping studio in Evans Head. We will go over all of the tools and techniques needed to shape the board and oversee the process from start to finish, ensuring a beautiful functional surfboard shaped by you. Then we will put on a basic color spray if you would like and take it next door to our glasser and discuss glassing and fin needs for the board. Once complete, we will go for a surf and head back. 5-7 days later we will deliver or ship your custom board to you, a ready-to-ride personally shaped surf craft!
Other things to note
The day could take up to 6 hours. Also, bring a change of clothes as you will get dusty. You will get to be hands on in shaping yourself your own custom surfboard!!!

We had a great day with Scott. We were greeted by some beautiful fresh fruit and home made protein balls to give us the energy for the day! We then sorted out our design, personalised branding and then headed to the factory to shape our boards. We learnt heaps about board design and the amount of detail that goes into it shaping a board blew our minds. We also got to talk all things surfing with Scotts great knowledge of the industry and local breaks! Thoroughly recommend to surfers of all abilities.

Bought this experience as a gift for my partner who was completely thrilled! Scott has an easy and relaxed manor and made us both feel at home. His knowledge is so in depth and he is happy to share it too- everything from technical shaping pointers to stories from the tour! The experience was really hands on and just such an enjoyable day

This was by far the best experience in getting a surfboard I’ve ever had.... Scott was the nicest Bloke, had awesome stories and really took the time to talk me through the building process... would recommend this to anyone who is a surfer, or wants to start surfing... I’ll be buying all my boards from Scott from now on

Amazing day with an absolute legend! Started off with a lovely hang out at their home in Lennox where I hung with Scott, Tia and their awesome dog, talking shop and getting to know each other over some tasty nibbles, then after some computer aided design bits, we headed off to Scott’s shaping spot down in Evans. Scott really spent time explaining and demonstrating everything which really put me at ease and we had a rad time shaping up my next stick! Can’t wait to see the final result when the tint and glassing are finished - thanks so much guys, excellent day and an unforgettable experience!! Yeeeew! Dunk

I got this experience for my husband ; an avid surfer who I knew would never think to do something as cool as this for himself. He was super stoked for the day, and he’s still talking about it! Can’t wait until he gets to ride his new whip. Scott was amazing the whole way. He went above and beyond with helping me surprise him with this awesome gift. A great idea and also makes a unique and special present - especially in time for Christmas ! Thank you Scott for all your help.
