Kuahiwi Handplane | Bamboo + Dyed Birch Middle
A piece of surf culture that goes easily from Wall to Waves.
The Kuahiwi bodysurfing handplane is all business. Made of vacuum formed bamboo, birch, and Koa veneer, this handplane has been designed to be swimmable and reliably durable. It provides a sturdy edge that holds through critical sections.
It features a single deep bottom concave from tip to toe, keeping it lively in waves of all sizes. A velcro and neoprene combination makes for a comfortable, adjustable strap -- and makes it easy to share (if you're willing to!). Included in each order is a patterned carrying bag to keep your handplane safe and snug.
Handplanes are stoke insurance for all kinds of beach days and are easily packed for trips to far away waters. Keep one in the truck with your favorite fins - for when the waves start calling.
Made in Maui, Hawai'i. Our Kuahiwi model has been seeing waves in the Pacific since 2018.
Individually crafted, a little variance from one handplande to another is normal. On average, each is about 7.75" W x 12" H x 0.25" D.
