After reading the GoodMorning Gloucester post about the First Annual Surf Competition at Good Harbor Beach last weekend, I thought the Gloucester surfing community might like to know about a Build Your Own Surfboard class we’re running at Lowell’s Boat Shop in Amesbury. (So what’s the relationship between Amesbury and Gloucester? Lowell’s Boat Shop, the oldest continuously operating boat shop in the country — and a nonprofit — built the Banks dories used by the Gloucester fishing fleet back in the 1800’s! A longtime connection!) Wondering if you could post the blurb below the on GoodMorning Gloucester? Thanks for considering.
The Lowell’s Crew
Thursday, May 16 through Sunday, May 19
8AM – 5PM each day
**Register before MAY 1 for best price.
This workshop is a collaboration between Lowell’s Boat Shop and Grain Surfboards from Kittery, ME. Students will have their pick from a number of board styles, and will build their own boards under the guidance of two instructors from Grain. All materials(sustainably grown cedar, zero VOC bio-epoxy, etc.) are included in the tuition cost. We’ll even provide a delicious breakfast and lunch!
