Longboard/Skimboard Design Camp
We are excited to be back for our TENTH summer. We are especially looking forward to our Longboard/Skimboard Design Camp where students will design and build their own longboard or skim board! These camps will be held for one week only – July 10 – 14, 2017. There are 2 separate session per day, morning and afternoon.
Cruise on in this July and join our exclusive Longboard/Skimboard Design Camp. Under the guidance of Richard Pierce, founder of Wilmington’s own Stolen Longboards and Silver Hammer Workshop, students will learn each of the steps in creating authentic wooden longboards or skimboards. 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.
