Flying Fish Handplanes: Big Wave Specialists

The Flying Fish handplane is designed to bite into those clean, steep, quick waves, giving the bodysurfer control and speed while holding the line. Coming in at a pint-sized 9” long by 8” wide, this handplane has a diminutive footprint, helping the rider get out to the lineup while adding just enough of a planing surface to give some lift while cruising the wave. An upraised nose helps the board plane through the water, skipping over the slop, while the hydroplane-style channels on the bottom help the board catch in the face of the water, preventing it from slipping down into the flats.
