Wine Barrel Fish Handplane
This single concave, glossy, fish-shaped handplane is a stunning, performance bodysurfer. It is made from spruce French White Oak from spent wine barrels from Soquel Vineyards. You can even see a few wine spots on the wood! Given the density of the oak, there are holes cut uniformly throughout the tip and tail make the plane a little lighter. Each hole has been covered with resin to ensure water-tightness. The holes add a unique look as well. This handplane uses Entropy Super Sap Epoxy bio-resin which is made using nearly 40% 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.
This handplane comes with a Ventana, double-thick, reclaimed towel bag with a Paracord drawstring from Khordz mugs. An eighth grade seamstress in Soquel, California creates these unique bags for us!
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.
