California Polytechnic University, San Luis Obispo, in partnership with the ASI Craft Center, offers students and members of the community the opportunity to hand shape a surfboard! Inquire for more information and class schedules.
The Craft Center Surfboard Shaping Room has six shaping bays equipped with shadow lights and racks. There is also a separate room and overhead racks for board storage. The quarter pass includes access to the room at any time during business hours, tools, and storage for one board. Those taking the class will receive a surfboard blank, instruction, and tips on artwork. The class does not include glassing.
If you would like to use the facility for shaping and not enroll in the class, the price is an astounding $2/day, or $20/quarter, student or non-student. The pricing makes it quite accessible.
