My suggestion to everybody who takes the class is to get all the materials to build a board (Greenlight Surf Supply is who I use: greenlightsurfsupply.com ) and build a board while you take the class. Learn a step at night, do the same step at home the next day on your own board while it's fresh in your mind. Learn the next step the next night, do it the following day on your own board, etc. You'll get a board done in four nights (except for the sanding, which we don't do indoors!). We tried to get everyone to build their own board when the course first started, but it became prohibitively expensive... the cost of the class, plus the cost of all the materials and tools was out of reach for most people interested in the course. Plus, some people didn't need tools, some didn't need materials, some just wanted to see how it's done... so it just didn't work out that way, even though that was the original concept. We also thought about a separate shaping class, glassing class, artwork class, etc., but again, we didn't feel we'd be able to meet a "break even" point. The course is a good way to break into the craft, gives you a ton of knowledge and information, and you walk away with a packet of material that includes design theory and step-by-step shaping and glassing guides. Plus, you might win the board... we pick names out of a hat for a winner.

My school is having state testing for Jr. and the people who passed it last year have to take internships. I would be grateful if any photographers or shapers would allow my friend and me to watch, help out, or what ever we can do to help out. We dont need transportation, just the opportunity. Its around march. If anyone doesnt mind we would like to see how it's done.
Email me with any information. Thank you
