Our shaping kits start from only $400 AUD and include everything you need to shape your own balsa board (except tools*) Please note that the four or five piece balsa shaping kits are suitable for thin boards & flat rocker only - you must draw and cut your rocker on the narrower side of the timber to get the required width in the board.

You can choose between a light weight modern kit or a solid heavy classic kit.

Foam core kits include-

This surfboard kit comes with everything you need (see bottom of page) to successfully make your own lightweight, strong longboard. Suitable for beginners up to the very advanced shapers. 

Please note: Hollow boards are very difficult to make without any real benefits and they need to be well maintained and they are difficult to repair, they are also very limited to your custom shape – we do solid and foam core!

Balsa Wood

Cedar stringer to suit board with rocker

Nose and Tail blocks

PVA glue

DVD. Building a Solid balsa board

We still have one more sanding to do--- but this is the finished board.

Your wood is amazing. Thank you.

 We used some redwood for the nose and tail.

 I shot the photo after dark, when we finished, sorry about the lighting.

 We appreciate all your efforts to help us. 

 We never would have gotten there without your clear, detailed DVD, your patience with our questions and perfect wood.

 Thank you,
