POD PF1's Features
:: Manufactured with Malaysian highest quality natural buoyant rubber compounds
:: POD patented lamination technique for super strong construction
:: Soft rubber lined extended foot pocket is extremely comfortable
:: Unique splay rails® combined with symmetric blade provide excellent balance, thrust, speed and control
:: Drainage design ensures quick water and sand release from the foot pocket
*Note: Please use the foot size chart below for all models of POD fins. If you have any doubts whatsoever, please visit your local stockist.
If the length of your foot is slightly longer but matches the same width in the sizes below, there is still plenty of toe room because the foot pocket itself has been extended for versatile fittings and to ensure a comfortable fit.
POD does not recommend fitting two foot sizes down in any size fins, as this may tear or crack the sole including snapping the fin strap from over stretching, plus this will change the intended foot size to blade length ratio, including the structural fin strength vs. body weight which is not covered under warranty.
Most importantly rubber swim fins are intended for swimming not walking or running. Bending the blade beyond 45° in any direction from walking, running and/or impact on the blade will cause the sole or blade to tear/crack will void any warranty.
POD Bodysurfing Handboards
The results are in! Our customers love the outstanding durability and performance of our POD Handboards also known as hand-planes or hand-surfers.
Our Australian made bodysurfing hand boards are strong, lightweight and buoyant 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 Handboards
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.
