BUILD YOUR OWN WOODEN SURFBOARD
Thursday, May 16 through Sunday, May 19 8AM - 5PM each day $1795 tuition ($1900 after May 1; registration closes May 11) Please call Lowell's Boat Shop to pay tuition to avoid processing fees. Lowell’s Boat Shop in Amesbury is pleased to collaborate with Grain Surfboards to offer a 4-day wooden surfboard building class at the Boat Shop. The class is perfect for those who want to make their own board but don't have the space or tools to get the job done right. No experience necessary. Students have their pick of over a dozen different models to build, and will start with a board that has the frame already glued to the bottom planks. Two Grain board builders will be available to guide students through the easy step-by-step process to ensure that each board becomes a beautiful one-of-a-kind surfboard that will last a lifetime. Together, we'll explore basic surfboard design concepts, the simple application of steam to manipulate wood into shapes, adhesive applications, elements of edge tool work and use of other traditional hand tools, glassing and effective use of epoxy. By the end of Day Four, you’ll have your own board, ready to glass. Fiberglass, hardware and resin are provided so that the board can be glassed at home, or left with us to be glassed and shipped later. Tuition costs include: All materials (sustainably grown cedar, zero VOC bio-epoxy, etc.) and selected pages of detailed instruction on glassing and finishing -- along with the glassing supplies. Use of shop tools and set up during the class (no need to bring your own tools). Eligibility to participate in Grain's "Build Your Own Quiver" incentive plan. We'll even throw in a delicious breakfast and lunch as part of the tuition! Students are responsible for their own dinner costs as well as accommodations; discounted rates are available to Lowell’s participants at Fairfield by Marriott.

July 7-12: Seafaring and Sail Training for Teens This sail training voyage -- a collaboration between Lowell’s Boat Shop, Maritime Gloucester, Tall Ships Maine and Ocean Passages -- offers teens the adventure of a lifetime! We’ll spend a week aboard the schooner Harvey Gamage, working side-by-side with a professional crew to learn seamanship, sail handling, and leadership. Graham McKay of Lowell’s Boat Shop will Captain the vessel for our trip; Amanda Madeira of Gloucester Maritime will serve as co-Captain (both are fully USCG licensed and have decades of experience sailing tall ships and leading onboard educational programs).
