It’s been said that the best surfers ride everything, that their quiver knows no bounds and that they live not by the mundane and arbitrary rules of the modern day man, but by the tides, the wind and the sea. History shows us that true watermen create their legacy through their unique and absolutely unwaivering resolve to understand the movement of both the sea and the craft they choose to set forth upon. Pioneers like Laird Hamilton, Mike Stewart, Jay Moriarty (RIP) and Kai Lenny have one key thing in common, a pure connection with the ocean.
THESE HANDPLANES ARE INCREDIBLE
Surfing in its purest form can be as simple as bodysurfing and the evolution of the hand plane has recently taken this amazing past time to a whole new level.
The days of the ultimate grovel are over my friends. WAW Hand planes make even the tiniest low tide slab totally ride-able and it’s the ultimate in Summer fun when the days are long and you need to keep the stoke.
The thing goes super fast and sits you up in the water so nicely it’s ridiculous. It planes immediately and can actually handle a pretty late drop in to a sucking sand tube. With such a little surface area, it’s remarkable just how much drive they have. It might take you a while to find the sweet spot, but when you do, it will instantly put a smile on your face!
