Longboard – Skimboard Design Camp 2018
July 12 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm
An event every day that begins at 9:00am, repeating until July 13, 2018
Cruise on down to the SHW this July and join our exclusive Longboard Design Camp. Under the guidance of Richard Pierce, founder of Wilmington’s own Stolen Longboards, students will learn each of the steps in creating authentic wooden longboards. They will begin with an overview of the entire process and be able to study the board in various stages of completion. Soon after, they will be reviewing various shapes currently in use and decide what styles will work best for their own full scale templates and boards. They will continue working with the instructor throughout the week, experimenting with procedures and techniques and bringing their designs to life. Some aspects will be automated to ensure safety and accuracy, while others will be done completely freehand to reflect the creativity and skills of the student. Days will include instruction in both design and woodworking in order to create a strong foundation in each element of this dynamic process. By the end, participants will not only walk away with a beautiful, custom-made board, complete with top of the line components, but also the skills, knowledge, and confidence that go along with creating something entirely with their own hands.
