Design your own Boardshorts Workshop

Kirsten from South Beach Boardies teaches you how to make a custom pair of boardshorts to your own unique style


In this fun half day workshop, South Beach Boardies designer Kirsten Lopez teaches you how to use your won personal sense of style to  create a custom pair of boardies for a man, woman or child. We'll teach you how to make a repeating pattern featuring design elements of your choice, and how to work from an inspired & flattering colour palette, to create a bespoke garment that reflects your individual flair.

We then send off your design to our ethical manufacturer, who will use your artwork and our shorts pattern to create your own bespoke, custom-made boardshorts, made from recycled plastic bottles! Due to high demand, this process takes approx. 8-10 weeks. We will then send you your very special boardies to your door! 

Keen to use your print across matching boardies for the family? Email us for a tailored quote.

What you will need to bring:

Any design elements you would like to include in your print, on a USB device (or hard copy is also acceptable). These might be illustrations, sketches, even photographs. If in doubt, bring it along! We will also have a bank of gorgeous design elements for you to choose from.

Measurements (waist, hip and thigh) for the person who will be wearing the boardies (if you are designing for yourself, we can measure you on the day).

A photo of the person you are designing for is helpful, so we can help you work out the best colours and board-shorts style to suit them.


$215 per person

Light refreshments will be provided. Please advise any dietary requirements at the time of booking.
