Huntington Beach, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 08/21/2015 -- Mini Shaperz offers longboard kits that are true 1/6 scale replicas of quality wooden surfboards, as well as instructional videos to show how to create these models. A perfect gift for surfers, mini surf board kits are good practice for those who want to try their hand at shaping a surfboard without the commitment and cost of practicing on a full-size board.
Each balsa wood longboard kit comes with a 1/6 scale balsa blank with pre-formed rocker; a 1/6 scale template; a 1/6 scale fin, pre-formed in classic design; a sanding block with rail shaping guides; sandpaper and foam for shaping and finishing; nontoxic Tung oil for a traditional finish; a dust mask; and a display stand to hold the final product.
Intended for ages 12 and up, younger children can also complete the kit with adult supervision. The videos show how to cut out the pattern, apply the pattern to a wood blank and trace the outline, sand correctly to shape the board into the desired pattern, measure, stain, attach the fin and assemble the stand.
These gifts for surfers and mini surfboard shapers can be completed by anyone regardless of previous experience. For more information on Mini Shaperz, see http://minishaperz.com/shop/ or http://newswire.net/newsroom/pr/00089516-mini-shaperz-introduces-1-6-scale-model-surfboards.html
About Mini Shaperz
Mini Shaperz was created by a couple of lifelong surfers who wanted to combine their passion for traveling and creating new cool things with the lifestyle of surfing, then share that with the world. Utilizing CAD software and taking advantage of their workshop, Mini Shaperz founders took the idea of drawing and cutting full sized surfboards and turned it into reality when they realized it would be much easier to start with a smaller size. Now, you can purchase your own mini surfboard shaperz kits and create your own realistic, 1/6th scale surfboard in the comfort of your own home.
