Bodysurfing Handboards Bodysurfing Handplanes

POD Body Surfing Handboards are engineered and designed to last the distance of years of bodysurfing or body bashing if not a lifetime.

POD Ware has developed over 30 years three different model hand boards the original Limited Edition Solid Hand Crafted Timber, Solid Moulded Plastic and the latest versatile Hand Body Soul® POD bodysurfing handboard that you can ride either way!

Others refer to body surfing hand boards as hand planes, hand surfers and even hand surfboard.
