Having operated my own bodysurfing company for past 3 years and individually hand crafted 1000's of timber boards I can guide you through the principles of handplane design and template creation, and of course the techniques and woodworking hand tools required to shape your very own wave riding machine.

Absolutely awesome. I had not hand planed before, but this was no issue. Rikki was really knowledgeable, and a great was instructor. The set up was great and even with limited woodwork skill I created an awesome plane. I'm so looking forward to using it

The class was awesome, Rikki was a great teacher and everything was provided. I would definitely recommend this class to my friends. The best part is you get to Hit the surf afterwards and trial your hand plane. Thanks Rikki.
