Handplane

Handplanes for bodysurfing are designed to let your body skim the surface of the water more efficiently by propelling your body and providing buoyancy to keep you moving. The best conditions for bodysurfing are hollow shore breaks, reef breaks and wedgy beach breaks.

Rikki Gilbey has individually hand-crafted thousands of timber boards and is the manager of his own body-surfing company. In his Handplane Shaping Bodysurfing workshop, learn the principles of handplane design, template creation, techniques and woodworking hand tools required to shape your very own sustainable wave-riding machine.

Design and shape your custom designed handplane suited to your bodysurfing style, attach your fully adjustable and recycled neoprene strap system and apply personal artistic touches.
