I've recently made some solid chestnut wood hand planes. This is a pin tailed plane with double handed grip, and funky channels. It has a raspberry red stain on the tail, and can be fitted with a rubber wist support so there is less chance of loosing it in bigger surf.
Hand planes are huge fun, and as a stand up surfer up until now I hadn't made much of a foray into body surfing, but trying these things out really brings home the simple pleasure of you and the wave in a very uncomplicated way.

A lovely cherry wood Glass Tiger..
8' mini mal, 21 3/4'' x 3''.
Perfect condition, never been used.
Green cherry stain top and bottom and red chestnut rails.
Iroko nose and tail blocks, with cork expansion joints.
As usual with all my boards the construction is rock solid and the board is simply finished with an oil based varnish.
It has a GORE vent system, to allow the EPS core to remain at a constant atmospheric pressure.
Has to be seen..
2 + 1 fin configuration, this board is ready to go!

Just finished this custom SUP which is currently on display in the WESUP shop on Gilly beach in Falmouth until the end of August.
The dims are 10'6'' x 31'' x 4 1/2.
The wood is gaboon mahogany top and bottom, with a walnut tail and the rails are chestnut.
Biggest board so far!

This is a recent board I made for Olly,
Its a short single fin, inspired by early single fins.
The length is only 5'10'' with the volume hidden in the wide point slightly forward.
The rocker is reasonable flat, with v running all the way through, flatting off at the tail.
Ollys stoked... Good times

Pete who bought the Freak fish, just sent through some great pics of him surfing 'Le Freak' at his local point in Scotland. I was blown away by how good the set up looks, but was told this is a fairly rare occurrence, never the less looks awesome.
Nice one Pete... nice top turn too!
