For those who dig catching waves and want to take it to a whole new level. WAW Handplanes have created the perfect tool to allow you to bodysurf like never before. Handmade using sustainably harvested timber, the Pinstripe Fish is designed to enhance the entire bodysurfing experience by creating lift and control, allowing for an easier, faster and longer surf.
The Arrow Fish is crafted in an Indonesian woodworking village and regularly visited by the WAW team to ensure fair workers’ agreements are upheld. Each handplane is individually handmade using locally-sourced plantation timber Mindi or White Cedar, an FSC-certified timber. This particular material possesses an incredible strength-to-weight ratio and is naturally hydrophobic, which means you can surf easier, faster and longer.
As with all of their handplanes, the Pinstripe Fish also comes with a fully-adjustable Yulex Pure bio strap, made of plant-based rubber (certified by the FSC and Rainforest Alliance), recycled polyester velcro, and solvent-free glues.
What’s more, to replace the timber that they use, WAW is planting a native tree for every handplane sold through the Carbon Neutral Charity Fund.
It turns beginners into pros and the pros into experts.
