How to Shape a Surfboard : Get the Right Tools For Shaping Surfboards


ABE TOKE: Hi. Welcome to Expert Village, my
name is Abe Toke. I’m going to take you through step by step to shape yourself a complete
surfboard. All right, the first step usually in shaping a board, I usually take as making
sure you got all your tools. So tape measure is key. Square like this is pretty key for
outlining the board. You’re going to need a planer, a sheer form, hand planer, sometimes
a finger planer, spokeshave. Get yourself a good sanding block is key. Something like
this or just get a block of wood a lot of shapers use. A sanding screen helps to finish
out a board. We’ll get to that stuff later, but any of these tools are a necessity to
get yourself a complete shape.
