I got the Flo for myself, since i've already for a few of the original wooden pods I was looking for something bigger for 4-6foot surf, but in smaller surf the Woo i got for my dad makes me jealous, it's superior for the 1-2 foot range and easier to swim with. I think there's one of these in my near future.
WOO 300mm 12inch Wood POD Handboards - Bodysurfing Handplane
WOO 300mm 12inch Cedar Walnut POD® Handboards 100% Custom Built for Bodysurfing
Woo Hoo there’s nothing quite like our beautifully crafted and shaped 300mm/12inch solid Cedar and Walnut Hand Body Soul® POD bodysurfing handboards!
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.
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.

Excellent made handplane, so much attention to details, palm hold is so comfortable, nice wide hand strap, I have another handplane like a plaited/braid strap its why to thin and cuts into my hand. the pod strap is so comfortable, the board is really great to swim with and holds me well on the wave I never experienced before.
