MASTERCLASS SERIES


THE ART OF SURFBOARD CARVING

Learn from the best...

These Masterclasses have top production values and excellent clear instruction from Ruben himself whose techniques stem from traditional carving, but have been evolving.  This form of art has developed into Ruben's specialty through years of experience.  He has innovated many of his own techniques and adapted a wide array of tools to make carving easier, more streamlined, and more suited to surfboards.  He shares everything you need to know and saves you time by sharing his vast expertise in this unique field of art.  Ruben is great at explaining his process in simple, clear language and he holds nothing back. 

 

The filming is both beautiful to watch and very easy to understand both visually and verbally to allow you to see and hear his explanations of how he completes each step from the initial dirty and sometimes broken old surfboard into a gorgeous new piece of valuable art.  This is not your typical DIY YouTube tripod-shot tutorial.  This was filmed professionally by a skilled cameraman and the angles are always adjusted to show each step clearly. If you are accustomed to seeing the bloopers of many tutorials (even from top artists), this course will be a memorable new gold standard for quality.  It is refreshingly free of the off-camera action, focus foibles, and bad lighting of so many of online art courses.   

This is a partial set of the full course designed for beginners to learn how to carve surfboards.  It will give you the most basic information on how to start creating beautiful new art out of old surfboards. 


The package includes not only the videos, but also supporting instructional content including transcripts of the video and other documents to help you make the most of what you learn from the video series. It's a great way to sample the course and see if you want to buy the full package.  If you decide to purchase this course, you can later purchase the Full Advanced Course and we will give you a discount for having purchased the first portion of the Masterclass.

This is the full course designed to take you from beginning to the most advanced considerations for carving surfboards. After you work through the course, all that will be left to do is to put the many lessons into practice to attain mastery. Ruben shares his knowledge generously, holding nothing back.  He will give you all the knowledge needed to create gorgeous surfboard artworks
