Can you imagine a surf camp where you have to make your own wooden board and learn to surf with it? In Make your surf we wanted to make this So original idea.
In the months of July and August we organized a camp aimed at boys and girls from 12 years old. Our headquarters are in Torremolinos, Málaga.
The course has a total duration of 50 hours, spread over 2 weeks. From Monday to Friday from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. . You will have to make your own wooden board from scratch in our carpentry workshops. Once the table is built, we will learn to use it in more than two practical sessions of 5 hours.
The course will consist of a group of up to 8 students, organized by ages and levels. Each student will have their own workbench, materials and tools, provided by the organization, to manufacture what will later be their table.
The assembly activities will be alternated with other activities related to surfing and sports through different recreational and educational tools (talks, videos, outdoor activities ...)
The ones we are going to make are a design conceived and tested by ourselves for learning. (This point is very important since an inappropriate table choice can frustrate the intentions of the most willing).
And why wood?
All Wood manufactures wooden boards, we believe in it as in modern materials, but wood is part of the spirit and history of surfing since its inception. Without wooden boards, surfing would not exist and this seems to have been forgotten today. In addition, wood fabrication is simpler and viable for this course.
If you are looking for surfing, build your own board in Torremolinos.
