Surfboard Shaping Workshop 

With Kumu Pōhaku Stone

Learn about the special relationship between the shaper and a traditionally carved surfboard. The process of finding the right source of wood, bringing out the life of the board, and naming the surfboard involves culture, protocol, and respect. Get a feel for shaping the wood and gain some insights into understanding the connection between shaper and board inherent in the process of creating a traditional wooden Hawaiian surfboard.
