With so many surfboard shapers residing on the Gold Coast it’s hard for the average Joe to know what separates the good shapers from the great. Master Shaper Richard Harvey comfortably fits into the latter category. With over 45 years experience, Richard has not only shaped thousands of remarkable surfboards over the years, but has also shaped an impeccable reputation amongst surfers and his colleagues as a truly gifted shaper.
The Surfboard Shapers Workshop, which is on at Surf World Gold Coast this Saturday, 22nd March, is an introductory course to shaping your own board. This one 3 hour session covers all the basic elements of surfboard shaping, including the shaping bay layout, the tools used in each of the processes, design elements, to understanding the fundamentals and character of boards and fins. It also covers how to decide on what surfboard to shape and ride, to creating templates, translating measurements, and much more.
Richard’s vast knowledge on anything surf related is an indication of how he has immersed himself in his work, leaving him with a reputation for an attention to detail that is second to none. Renowned local surf photographer Marty Tullemans will also be attending the workshop as the official photographer.
This price of attending the workshop is available for an exclusive offer of just $30. If you wish to secure a position for this prestigious event, contact Surf World Gold Coast on (07) 55 256 380.
