the brand story:

WAW Handplanes is an Australian bodysurfing brand committed to reducing our impact on the Earth. Founded by Rikki Gilbey and based in Sydney, Australia, Rikki and his team create handplanes that are handmade from sustainable, recycled and reclaimed materials. WAW attributes their success to the community effort; it has only been made possible by many great people working together.

For the Badfish: By combining the efforts of individuals they have created a supply chain that allows them to turn waste into a resource. Using plastic waste collected from Australian beaches by Eco Barge Clean Seas, it's then hand sorted, hand washed and shredded with a machine provided by the Plastic Collective and finally moulded into high-quality handplanes by the team at REPLAS.

WAW pride themselves on making products that have a positive impact on our planet. The entire product range is created with both performance and sustainability in mind, allowing customers to catch more waves whilst leaving nothing but cleaner oceans and healthier forests in their path. Your purchase not only cleans the beaches from which you surf, it also allows WAW to fund more clean ups, more sorting, more washing, shredding and more creations, thus diverting more and more of this waste from our beaches and from landfill. They are adamant on steming the flow on virgin plastics production because every single piece of plastic ever made still exists, figuring it's better to use that instead!
