2 Day Build Your Own Experience
2 Day Build Your Own Experience
The two day build your own experience is a full course in building skis/snowboards, starting with a plank of wood and finishing the second day with a custom Ski/Snowboard built with your own hands. You will work with us to build your dream Skis or Snowboard complete with custom graphics.
Before you arrive:
The course begins before you arrive at our workshop, as we will need to work with you to design the graphics for your board or skis. We can help you create your graphics or if you have the software and skills to have a go yourself then we can work with your design to prep and print ready for your course. (There are options if you would like extra help with your graphics).
Once we have the graphics for your board/skis finalised we need to work out a rough size that you would like so we can print the graphcis at the appropriate size so they can be ready for your course date.
On Day one:
When you arrive for the course you will be greeted by your host and shown around the workshop, we will asess the prepwork that has been done and the processes that have taken place. Then its time to get started. We start by selected our core blank and template before we begin routing the sidewall, mixing the resin for the sidewall that we leave over night. We then shape the base sheet, apply the metal edge and glue into place before lunch. Post lunch we check on the work we have done previously before selecting our lay up and mould profile. Followed by learnign about the various fibres used, cutting them to size. We then discuss the plan for the next day.
On Day Two:
Day two begins with a check up on the previous days work ahead of the core finishing processes (Thicknessing and Tapering) following this we will begin to asseble all the parts needed, before mixing the glue and getting hands on stacking eveything together and pressing. The board/skis then bakes in the press for about an hour whilst we break for lunch. Later on after lunch we take out the fully combined board or skis and start to cut and grind the excess materials, then using drills, sanders and other hand tools we will finish to a high level. Finally we tune and wax, grab some photos and package your new ride ready for you take home.
Stoked to come 1st and win a custom snowboard made by the awesome Douk 🤟🏻and they did not disappoint, Lewy & Beth brought my idea to life!!!
It’s an awesome board with amazing graphics 🤩 I’ve been shredding all season and it has not missed a beat!!!
Stoked with my new custom board and the weekend workshop where I created it. Massive thanks to Lewey, would highly recommend the experience 😎👍
Amazing experience doing the 2 day build your own course. Can highly recommend booking in on it! Had chance to learn a lot and really get involved in making my dream board a reality. The attention to detail and quality is miles above other board manufacturers. Great forward thinking and eco conscious company. If you’re thinking of booking in or getting a board, don’t hesitate and do it!
I attended the 2 day build your own snowboard experience. Lewey was FANTASTIC, super supportive and helpful (did all the scary bits for me!). I didn't really know much about snowboards prior to attending however Lewey wasn't phased and helped me make all the important decisions. I also used one of his designs for my topsheet, which he kindly colour matched it to the colours I had chosen for my base sheet. 1000000% could not recommend this company enough for building your own custom board or buying one of the stock boards. I'm already thinking about the board I'll be building next year!
I did the 'build your own' snowboard course. Absolutely love my board and the days I spent making it. Had a great time and learned so much! I made the hybrid camber board and it is so responsive but feels great all over the mountain. :)
I've ridden almost all the douk line up and a few customs they have made as well as owning a custom that I'm too precious about to ride 😅 great guys even better snowboards made in the UK what more could you want
