Interested in Shaping A Surfboard?
If you're at all interested in trying your hand at surfboard shaping, this one is for you...
As you may (or may not) know, we have a selection of Free Downloadable Surfboard Templates on our website. They are a completely free resource to help get you started off on the right foot for your next DIY surfboard project.
We also threw some advice together for the first time shaper in an eBook called "Almond's Guide to Shaping Your First Surfboard".
What you almost certainly did not know, is that a friend of mine from High School, Tanner Bendheim, has a DIY Surfboard Shaping YouTube channel—and it's really good.
Tanner has a full time career, but also has a deep love for surfing and surfboards, so he invites us into his self-built surfboard shaping shipping container for a variety of DIY projects—and his videos get many thousands (sometimes millions) of views.
We linked up with Tanner, gave him a surfboard blank, and he picked a 6'6 Pintail Mid-Length from our quiver of free templates.
Here is Tanner putting that free resource to work:
