Surfboard workshop in Kiel
Boards that mean the world.
Unique specimen – in two to three days of the workshop, your very own surfboard or kiteboard can take shape before your eyes. “We are passionate about water sports and nature. Nothing can be as energising as a good session in the water, regardless of whether it’s on a surfboard, kiteboard or in a sailing boat. This is our incentive to keep working on optimising our boards.” Jannek Grocholl and Julius Gedamke The Board Lab project was launched to offer all interested water sports fans a platform to make their individual, and above all, affordable custom board with professional guidance in a short space of time.
Manual skill always helps – but it’s not a condition. There’s a special atmosphere in this studio flooded with daylight where the workshops on making your own kiteboard are held. Here you can listen to loud music while you plunge into your work. The founders of Board Lab will support you with the shape and help you through the design process. Our know-how and the production processes are state of the art and help to match the ride characteristics to your exact style.
Lightweight rib construction, rails and deck layers of balsa wood and Paulownia wood, as well as EPS foam cores for hard landings, are all deployed in the surfboard workshop. There are no limits to the design: from a refined, wooden board, via radiant colours to textile elements, from the minimalistically natural to the garishly multicoloured. After three days, the Board Lab team apply the finishing touches, and your one-off specimen can embark on its journey to your home.
