Testing out the New Hand Planes

Body surfing is the simplest and some might say purest way to surf. In the last few years it is having a bit of a resurgence. Partly due to new film releases (Come Hell or High Water) and maybe due to a new generation discovering the beauty and stoke of body surfing.

North Devon local Joel Blackman has been on the body surfing train for a wee while. He has recently brought out some new handplanes and has been testing them out at Croyde Beach. Joel has started a range made out of foam, giving you more float and the opportunity to create unique and high performing designs. He is one of the few guys in the UK to be doing this. They are in our store for you to check out. Could make a cool crimbo present.
