SURF/BRAND body surfing hand planes are hand shaped on the north coast of NSW from Australian
plantation grown Paulownia Timber & are finished with a uv resistant environmentally friendly,
water based clear finish. Paulownia is chosen because it is a fine grained, rot resistant timber.
ADJUSTING THE HAND STRAP
The hand strap is fully adjustable to fit your hand in just a few simple steps.
- Start on the right hand side of the neoprene strap cover & roll it all the way back to the left (just like rolling off your wetsuit)
- This will reveal the adjustable velcro handstrap, adjust the velcro to your required size & re seal it nice n smooth
- Unroll the neoprene cover back to its original position & you're sorted
- Go & get barrelled :)
Just like surfboards. It depends on your size & the waves you want to ride.
Bigger boards are the best all rounders. They work in a wider variety of waves & provide more floatation across flat sections.
Smaller boards come alive in more powerful & hollower waves, less flotation, tighter lines & better performance in the barrel.
Shapes - Again just like surfboards, the combination of bottom & tail shapes all give subtle performance differences that you can feel.
Going left – board on your left hand.
Going right – board on your right hand.
Get some good flippers & get in the water!
Treat your hand plane like your surfboard.
Don't 'drop it , it will 'ding'.
Don't leave it outside in the sun all day.
Rinse it in fresh water.
