This super groovy hand shaped bodysurfing hand plane is made from royal paulownia with a multiwood stringer and redwood, cedar,black walnut and paulownia tail block and is coated with 4 coats of water based yet resistant finish. The Royal Paulownia is a super bouyant and water resistant wood, making it the perfect wood for hand planes. It measures 8.25 in wide by 10 3/4 in long by 3/4 in thick. It features a down rail design biting into the wave and entry and tail rocker for transitioning down the face of the wave and concave for lift. This is ideal for waves with some energy behind. The smaller size allows for greater maneuverability. It is intended for experienced surfers who are looking for a new way to ride waves or makes a great decoration for a surf/beach themed room. Our wooden hand planes are made primarily from woods from local mills.

The New Strap System:
So this is something that I've wanted to come up with for a while and decided to give it a go on this batch. Instead of needing a screwdriver to adjust the straps, we stitched up hook and loop on some polyester webbing and then put a neoprene cover made from recycled wet suit for comfort. The hardware is then epoxied into board and features a double washer support to prevent pull through of the webbing. To adjust hand plane size scrunch back the neoprene to bring the velcro out. Thanks to everybody who donated the the rubber.
How they work...With a combination of surface tension of the water , the buoyancy of the wood and planing speed. These hand planes will give lift to your lead hand while body surfing. And depending on the design of the board you can be tripoding in surf conditions from barely knee high mush to all time epic days.

We can also do special requests off of our templates or dimensions or a template you send us. Just send me a convo for details.
