There’s nothing quite like our beautifully handcrafted, limited edition solid timber bodysurfing handboard! Since the late 80’s, our founder and designer Shane Vassallo has been hand making each hardboard out of select grade Australian cedar and then takes great care to individually number it along with its unique board weight and year made. The natural variations of the wood’s grain colouring shape and weight makes each handboard one-of-a-kind. The handboard comes to you in a black draw string neoprene bag after it has been hand coated a minimum of 8 times with polyurethane and lightly sanded in between each coat. For the dedicated bodysurfer looking for a brag-worthy, unique product with outstanding performance, we highly recommend the POD Handcrafted Solid Timber Handboard.
Note: Please contact POD before purchasing, so we can provide photos of the Handboards available.

Having used the wooden handboard a couple of times, I have found it easy to use.
Incredible, love it

Amazing product - the normal pods are fantastic but the timber is really something special, light and speedy, even looks great hanging on the wall during the colder months. Truly an item to treasure I even have a pelican case to store it in.
I'm a true fan Shane, please continue the good work, the fins are great too.

I'm from the States and I've had my timber for a couple years now, without a doubt the best handboard that I have ever used. Most other handboards are clunky and this one delivers on every level. I get a lot of people asking about it and I'm glad to see you have a shop to refer them to.
