( — April 22, 2015) Huntington Beach, CA — Mini Shaperz, creators of the easy-to-use mini surfboard kit, offers how-to instructions for creating a mini surfboard. Mini Shaperz is a company that was created when two sufers decided to create a special surfboard shaping kit for creating miniature surfboards. Not only does a mini surfboard serve as great decoration, but surfers can use this kit as a cost-effective way to design and practice shaping a real surfboard.

Creating a mini surfboard is easy with Mini Shaperz as seen at To begin, use a pen to trace the template onto the wooden blank. Use coarse 100 grit sandpaper to sand down the blank into the desired shape. This effort can take about 15 to 20 minutes. After this step has been completed, use medium 220 grit sandpaper and shape the rails by rounding off the sharp edges. Finally, use fine 400 grit sandpaper to smooth down the entire board. Once sanding is completed, use a soft cloth to apply the oil or stain to the entire board and fin. Multiple coats will be needed, up to 3 or 4 coats over a few days span. Once the stain or oil has dried for at least 24 hours, apply the fin using glue. Keep in mind that minor flaws only add character, so do not expect it to be perfect.

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.
