Every year around this time, we look back fondly at all the great people we got to meet during the year through our classes. In 2012, we taught classes at our shop in Maine as well as in Portland, Oregon and Encinitas, California. We've had students from all over the US, as well as from Chile, the Caribbean, Australia and more.
But we also take a hard look at what is working for people and what isn't. We know that, while we love it here, coming to Maine in February can be... let's just say "unappealing". So we're making an effort to get out on the road more with the goal of bringing the experience of building your own surfboard to your back yard - sometimes literally. So far on the 2013 schedule, we're planning for a class at the Surfing Heritage Foundation in San Clemente in February, with our partners at Fyne Boat Kits in the UK in April and back to the famed Firehouse in San Francisco in November. And that's just the beginning.
We also know that money is tight these days, so we've combined the convenience of the 3-day Board Blitz with the solo experience people love of 7-day class and are now offering 4 day classes. In these classes, two students team up on day one to rail one board in the morning and the other board in the afternoon. From there, each student builds, shapes and sands their own board and takes home the final product ready for glass. Four days, almost always combined with a weekend, means less time away from work, family and friends. But if getting away is your thing, many of our classes on the farm in Maine will still be focused on the full 7 day experience.
