Posted on 04 May 2016

João interacting with visitors

João Ribeiro, who, embodying the true Maker spirit, did a phenomenal job of showing us how he builds artisanal surf boards at last year’s Maker Faire, will be back this year with a special surfboard featuring a classical Portuguese tilework theme:

Just like year, João will be available on-site to teach us all about the manufacturing process - designing, cutting, and finishing (which includes a lot of the nitty gritty work of sanding)

João hard at work

João is a renewable energies and metalworking teacher, who has also been working on a custom CNC to help him build his boards and experiments with many techniques - you can check out some more of his work here.
