Well it’s been a long poor summer for surf this year and to fill in that gap of surf stoke we had a stab at making our first ever surfing hand planes! I think the results speak for themselves and we’re quietly(!) chuffed with our first attempts. The wood is Poplar with Ash and Walnut centre stringers clamped up into blanks using polyurethane glue.
The hand straps were made from old snapped surfboard leashes fixed onto the planes with stainless steel fixings.
As they say the board is in there somewhere you just have to find it!
