My collaboration with Ventana Surfboards and Supplies.
This fish-shaped handplane is a performance, bodysurfing art piece featuring a gorgeous ocean scene on each side. The wood is spruce from Santa Cruz Guitar Company production offcuts. We glassed it with Entropy Resins, a bio-based epoxy, and Aerialite Surf Glass. The hand strap is nylon and adjustable. It is covered with neoprene from a Buell Wetsuit, and the wood is shaped with our unique, ergonomic hand fit. The hardware is solid brass. As with all Ventana handplanes, this one floats so you can easily pass it between friends in the waves.
It comes with a free cinch sack made by Sagebrush Boardbags from coffee bags and remnant fabrics.
You only need a single handplane on your leading arm for a great ride every time! This is a terrific conversation piece in your home and will slice you across the face of any sized surf.
Shaped, finished, and designed in Santa Cruz, California by master artisan, Martijn Stiphout
