A date has been announced for this year’s Wooden Surfboard Day. Shapers and budding wooden board builders from across the globe will descend upon Currumbin, Australia on 2 August to show off the projects that they have been working on through the year.
Each year experience grows, and the level of skills and finish of boards is a testament to the long hours and effort being put in. If you are working on a project at the moment or thinking of starting one, now you have a reason to get started or stuck in to finishing it for August.
Participants are invited to send pictures and details of any boards you are building to share with others and to whet their appetite. The event is a gathering of like-minded people who enjoy the challenge of spending countless hours in the shed building wooden boards. It’s a great time to meet others with the same passion and to see what they have been up to.
If you don’t build boards but want to find out more you could not be in a better place to ask all the questions you want. There are many ways to build a wooden board and they will be on display on the day. So bring your boards and go for a surf. The Alley in winter is often at it’s best for a slide across the banks on a wooden board, and there is nothing better that being on one you built yourself.
