The 2015 Wooden Surfboard Day at the Gold Coast was held on what was most likely the most perfect winters day.
We were thrilled to be able to give a global traveller and avid Surfer 'E' the opportunity to make his own hollow wooden surfboard. During the week, E who in his words, has no woodworking experience apart from sharpening a pencil, learnt basic woodworking skills such as sharpening a hand plane, shaping, sanding of his board and fin placement. We then went on to fully glass the board.
But don't just take our word for it ... Have a look at our very first YouTube
It was all very hands on at the recent Working with Wood Show at the RNA last weekend...
We had an overwhelming response and interest in not only our Wooden Surfboard and traditional woodworking classes, but also our custom making and furniture restoration services. Thank you to Carbatec for making this possible. Much appreciation to Michael Hoffman and David Wardrop for their invaluable help and enthusiasm over the weekend.
Come and see for yourself the ultimate in Wooden surfboards.
Bywater Design in Collaboration with CarbaTec will be demonstrating shaping techniques for hollow wooden surfboards all this weekend at the
Working With Wood Show RNA Brisbane. We will have the ultimate in wooden surfboard collections, with an extensive range of completed student work along with paulownia timber available for purchase on the day. We look forward to seeing you there !
A very excited Tuesday night wooden board class proudly displayed their completed boards. All ready to glass. We all had a great time. Lots of laughter and fun along the way.
Don't Forget our next Class begins on September 9 ...Limited positions available.

The recently completed project by Chris, a wonderful long-term student; shows the amazing diversity of projects that our students complete... Incorporating the stunning native bird scene into this porthole like window, highlights both the rich colours of the stained glass as well as the natural hue of the recycled silky oak timber that was used.
Well done Chris, we look forward to seeing your next project.
