Switch Hitter Handplane
This double concave, glossy, fish-shaped handplane is a stunning, performance bodysurfer. The lighter wood comes from upcycled, Alaskan Cedar benches used by thousands of visitors at the world renowned Monterey Bay Aquarium. The redwood is from an old house in Capitola, California. Small stripes of Indian rosewood from the Santa Cruz Guitar Company outline the redwood.
We have also the Switch Hitter surfboard that matches this handplane!
This handplane uses Entropy Super Sap Epoxy bio-resin which is made using mostly tree sap. The hand strap is nylon and adjustable. It is covered with offcuts from O'Neill Wetsuit product development, and the wood is shaped with our unique, ergonomic hand fit. The hardware is solid brass. As with all Ventana handplanes, this one floats so you can easily pass it between friends in the waves.
You only need a single handplane on your leading arm for a great ride every time! This is a terrific conversation piece in your home and will slice you across the face of any sized surf.
Handmade in Santa Cruz, California and designed by master craftsman Martijn Stiphout
