WAW Timber Bodysurfing Handplane - Naked. A specialised all-rounder bodysurfing handplane, hand-shaped from FSC-sourced White Cedar. Cedar is naturally hydrophobic and has a high strength to weight ratio making it a great water-sport material. This handplane features a larger surface area for greater speed and lift, and is suited to most surfing conditions. Made by body surfers, for body surfers and can be used by all ages and abilities.

Features

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 Timber Arrow Fish: The white cedar handplanes are handmade and manufactured both in Sydney, Australia and Bali, Indonesia. All handpanes shaped overseas are received, fine-tuned, and have the final touches applied in our Australian workshop before reaching the market. The village in which the Indonesian workshop is located is a woodworking village and the crafts men and women are incredibly passionate about their work. WAW visit the workshop regularly to ensure quality control and fair workers agreements are upheld. The timber used is a locally sourced sustainable plantation timber known as Mindi or White Cedar (Melia azedarach), an FSC certified timber.

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 stemming the flow on virgin plastics production because every single piece of plastic ever made still exists, figuring it's better to use that instead!

    This is a great present for someone who loves the water. I bought it for my 70 year old brother-in-law, who is an avid swimmer and he just loves it!

    My husband loved it!

    Such a cool gift. My husband was genuinely stoked on this. He took it straight to the beach and had blast. The recycled ocean plastic is a super bonus too. Would highly recommend!
