Grain Surfboards Teams Up with Patagonia Cardiff

Since Grain Surfboards' successful Kickstarter project in spring of 2013, they have been dialing in a plan for a new west coast mobile classroom so that they can share the process of building wooden surfboards with even more people. With the new rig in the fabrication process they will be mobile soon.

The staff at Grain Surfboards is now focused on joining forces with other like-minded businesses and individuals to bring their board building experience to destinations up and down the west coast.

Grain is proud to announce a collaboration with Patagonia Surf in Cardiff California. Two instructors from Grains headquarters in Maine will be travelling west to teach a 4-day class right behind Patagonia’s Cardiff location. Not only that, but Patagonia ambassador and pro surfer Keith Malloy will be joining the class and will build his own board alongside the students.

The class begins Friday October 18th and runs through Monday October 21st and each student builds their own board and takes it home with them at the end of the class.

Grain has always admired Patagonia for its practices, values and overall approach to the world we live in and is so proud to have one of their first mobile classes held at the Cardiff location.

Registration is open now and is filling quickly, please visit Grain's class site for more information and to sign up.  The class is open to a total of 6 students.
