Johan is teaming up with the Surf MTL club to offer a surfboard building class. Johan really knows his stuff now and can offer some crazy insight. Plus you end up with a ready to ride board to bring down to the coast or the river.

“Make a surfboard with Surf Montreal?! Thats right, we are teaming up with Master Montreal Shaper Johan Elder to teach you how to shape, glass and sand a surfboard. Each student will Learn how to glass and sand a board from a pre-shaped blank (4 shapes to chose from) to a final product. We will also teach you the skills and knowledge to shape foam and make a board from scratch!

When? November 21st, 28th, Dec 5th (Dates are pending but will be confirmed shortly)

Where? Kanellos Studios, near Rosemont Metro.

How Much? $600.00 (introductory price) includes all materials, tools, and you leave with a finished board ready to surf!

Who? Chris from Surf Montreal and Master Montreal Shaper Johan Elder will be giving the course.

The minimum age to participate is 18 and you have to be willing to get a little dusty. Making a surfboard was featured on Discovery’s Dirty Jobs so leave the Armani suit at home!

This is the first class of it’s kind in Quebec and a great opportunity for anyone looking to learn how to shape a board to actually learn it with a professional shaper on hand to show you how it’s done, forget shaping video’s this is the real deal!

The class will be limited to 10 Students to ensure individualized attention and ensure everyone has amazing professional results so space is definitely limited.

Registration is open from now until Sunday October 15th or until the spaces fill up.

For additional information or the registration form send an e-mail chris@surfmtl.com

    I just came across this. I was wondering if you were going to offer
    this class again this summer (2011). I have been looking for
    a surf board shaping class and didn’t realize they had one in Montreal.
