Duo POD Handboards - EGO 225mm 9inch Bodysurfing Handplanes
Duo EGO Cedar Walnut 225mm 9inch POD® Handboards 100% Custom Built for Bodysurfing
Double your Swimming Stroke, Lifting Force, Speed and Control with a pair of 225mm/9inch EGO Bodysurfing POD Handboards.
Dedicated to Harry "H2O" Saderis, the first bodysurfer and friend in the '90s started body surfing with a pair of the classic solid plastic POD handboards, as seen in our blog post How to Bodysurf: Learn to Use a POD Body Surfing Handboard.
There’s nothing quite like our beautifully crafted 225mm/9inch solid Cedar and Walnut Hand Body Soul® Duo POD bodysurfing handboards!
Also, for the very first time, Shane has designed ergonomic palm hold and support on the handboard deck surface, between the new purposely custom-built 50mm/2inch hand strap retainer inserts to suit 50mm/2inch webbing strap.
Not like other bodysurfing handplanes use of a small 25mm/1inch surfboard plug and a thin handboard strap causing discomfort over the hand.
The palm support relieves the arm muscles from stress, typically from handplanes with flat decks and most of all holds your hand in place, prevents your hand from slipping out from under the double padded neoprene strap.
The new POD handboard range, we now offer all three-size body surfing hand boards in two wood species joined together walnut centre and cedar sides.
Available in three new body surfing board sizes
- "EGO" = Length 225mm/9inch x Width 200mm/7.87inches x D 41mm/1.61inches
- "WOO" = Length 300mm/12inch x Width 210mm/8.25inches x D 43mm/1.69inches
- "FLO" = Length 375mm/15inch x Width 218mm/8.25inches x D 45mm/1.77inches
Since the late ’80s, our founder and artisan Shane Vassallo with a passion for bodysurfing and wood, has been hand shaping each handboard out of select grade Australian or Canadian cedar and limited range of other wood species published in the blog post Successful 30 Years.
With two new wood species cedar and walnut, three bodysurfing POD handboard sizes are a "body surfing game-changer" CAD computer-aided design, precision CNC machining, laser engravings, hand-finished and hand-assembled.
Cedar and Walnut contrasting colours, natural wood grain variations, timber density and Sic Cut® shape make each handboard one-of-a-kind.
Without any doubt, the new Sustainable EGO Cedar and Walnut Neutral Buoyant Duo POD Handboards ensures improved performance in any surf condition, from casual surfer to the elite dedicated bodysurfer looking for a brag-worthy unique product with outstanding performance, whilst offering natural swimming and paddling freedom, improved bodysurfing performance wave after wave, we highly recommend any of the Solid Wooden POD Handboards.
