Make a handboard with us!

A smiling man in a black tshirt, stands facing the camera with an outstretched arm to his side, his hand is positioned in a timber handcrafted handboard. There are wooden surfboards behind him.

With a fresh new year in front of us, we are looking to add some more exciting workshops to our calendar of learning. From surfboards to SUP boards, we love making amazing watercraft out of timber and a popular and accessible project is the small but mighty handboard.  

Back in 2023 we had the pleasure of hosting a timber handboard making workshop at the Hobart Wooden Boat Festival. Each session attracted a diverse range of students from kids to adults, all walking away with their very own handboard to enjoy in the surf. 

Handboards (blanks and ready-made) are available for purchase on our site, yet with growing interest for an in-person workshop, it may be a new course we add to our roster.  Located at our workshop in Brisbane, running for 4 hours, such a course would be more than suitable for beginners as well as those who have dabbled in woodwork but are curious about this watercraft. It would also act as a great tester for our 4 day wooden surfboard making course. 

We’d love to hear from you if you are interested and we will aim to fit this new class into our learning calendar of 2024.
