Bay Hire is best suited to shapers at intermediate, advanced or expert levels of shaping experience and is not suited to novice shapers. If you are at a novice level it is recommended that you up-skill via The Surfboard Studio's shaping course or the Make Your Own Board course before attempting to shape your own blank. Tuition is not included within the bay hire fee structure. We are not liable for novice shaping errors, which are common in the early stages of surfboard shaping.
Bay hire is primarily for shaping only. Glassing bays are unable to be hired out.
