Shape your own Surfboard
We have opened up our shaping facilities to the public, which we have split into 2 options:
If you are a Home Shaper looking for a space to get creative and make a mess, then you can rent our shaping bay for R400.00 per day, which includes the use of our tools.
Blanks: We only sell Surfblanks Africa as they are the best quality Polyurethane Blanks in South Africa!
“Polyurethane foam blanks are the core of your board. It is what the shaper works with to create your specific board shape. A cheaper blank will have a lower quality, weaker foam and will have less resistance to dings and breakages. Lower quality blanks are also more prone to shrinkage, which causes major problems for your board. Shapers must choose the right blank for the final board to ensure a stronger deck as the less foam removed the harder the blank remains. The foam in the middle of the blank is a lot softer than the outer skin. “

Note that the DIY Shaping option means that you are left alone to shape your own Surfboard. We do not help you in any way and you need to bring your own Template.
