The results are in! Our customers love the outstanding durability and performance of our POD Bodysurfing Handboards also called hand-planes or hand-surfers.
Our Australian made bodysurfing hand boards are strong, lightweight and neutral buoyancy thanks to the solid polypropylene construction. The concave-shaped bottom and keel fin are specifically designed for rapid lift and will help to make you a wave-holding expert!
Our handboards keep your hands in the natural swimming position and the double padded board straps and palm deck pad makes them comfortable to use. If you’re looking for extra speed, lift and control then our POD Handboards should be on the top of your list!
Neutral Buoyancy Hand-boards
A hand plane should have neutral buoyancy, they are easier to swimming with when cutting into the surface of the water with no extra load to your swimming stroke, also its easier to stroke the board to the middle of your body and while maintaining excellent balance.
Body surfing hand boards that are over buoyant make it difficult to cut into the surface of the water whilst swimming, it also adds extra load to your hand, wrist and arm, furthermore twisting your body to one side when swimming
POD Handboard Features
:: Solid polypropylene construction is lightweight, durable and neutral buoyancy
:: Hand is strapped in the natural swimming position, directly above the board’s pivot point and keel fin
:: Extra comfort double-padded neoprene hand strap, includes under palm deck grip
:: Wrist cord can be changed for left-handed users
:: Concave bottom shape and keel fin ensure rapid elevation and increased wave-holding capability
*Note: POD highly recommends adjusting your hand strap once over your hand, and for further use just slide your hand in between the strap and the deck grip, this will ensure the Velcro remains attached and lasts for many years.

Only used it once so far but lots of potential. Step up from my old handboard and in lime green it not only performs it looks good to. Looking forward to some cleaner waves to really give it a whirl.

$60 plastic handboards

I emailed you a few months back regarding the pod timber handboards. I couldn't hold out and so I bought one of the $60 solid plastic handboards. Without doubt it is one of the best products I have ever bought. I can't stop recommending them to people. It has opened up a whole new relationship with the ocean.
