Deluxe Bodysurfing Gear - Handcrafted POD Handboard PF3 Fins
Deluxe Bodysurfing Gear - Original Handcrafted Wood POD Handboard and POD Fins PF3 - Swim Fins
There’s nothing quite like our beautifully handcrafted, limited edition solid timber bodysurfing handplane!
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 Wooden Handboard.
All POD handboards decks are Convex = Comfort in the palm of your hand
The bottom surface are Concave = Optimum Lift, Speed, and Control in the surf
The concave bottom and keel fin is explicitly engineered for rapid lift versus force; this will assist in your body surfing and wave-holding skills without your board sliding downwards!
Note: Please review the numbered boards available, please add this board number in the notes when placing your order.
Handboard Numbering as follows POD/YEAR/Board No. also W = Weight

*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.
Please review in the left hand side product images - the blade length comparison between the PF2's and PF3's this extra blade length will scale the same in all size POD swim fins.
