I’ve been having a blast on this handplane I recently made. You can keep your line high on the wave and really get a nice ride out of it.
I can get a lot longer ride, than just body surfing regular, it’s great. In critical moments, I’ve learned to pull the plane into the face of wave.
The dimensions on this board are 13″ x 9″ x 1″
It’s made of 1″ plywood I had laying around my house. Water proofed with Varethane, a urethane weather sealer for outdoor wood flooring.
