"The goal has always been to make surfboard building almost a paint-by-numbers deal so anyone can experience the outrageous feeling of stoke when riding their own creations... there's no doubt we've accomplished that here with these tools and techniques for guys with little or no experience building things. The knowledge and detail I put into this Masterclass series is worth about 15-20 complete boards under your belt (and the dozens of lessons learned from mistakes on each one) if just jumping in and trying to learn to build boards on your own. If a surfer follows these steps I guarantee they'll be super happy with how their boards look and ride and very proud of their accomplishments."
~Brian Gagliana, HGIC (Head Guy in Charge) and GITV (Guy in the Videos)

"Great investment! Super happy I purchased it. The videos are clear, concise, and extremely helpful."
"So glad I watched these videos before diving in. I was reluctant to try shaping a surfboard but now I feel like I know exactly how to do it from this master class. Just bought a starter kit and can't wait to get going on it. We'll see how it goes but I'm gonna follow the process shown by Brian and I'm sure it'll turn out great! Can't wait"
"Just watching these videos made a HUGE difference in the quality of my boards. Folks should consider this if they take building seriously."
"These videos are priceless! Tons of info I never knew to make things simpler... I've made 5 boards so far and struggle with the glassing part. After watching these videos I know exactly how to do it and a few new tricks. I was making it much harder than it actually is. I'll be ordering again soon for my next board. Can't wait to do it right!"
