Get Barrelled and Leave No Trace with Our Bodysurfing Gear
Welcome to WAW Handplanes, the home of hand-made and sustainable bodysurfing handplanes, made right here at home in Australia.
We create handplanes made from timber, not only to be more sustainable, but because we also believe it creates the best performing handplanes. Our range of locally made bodysurfing equipment is neutrally buoyant and long lasting. It’s important that your handplane floats, but you also need it to easily penetrate the water to make for a natural swimming stroke
When you purchase a WAW Handplane, you’re purchasing it for life.
At WAW, we’re all about giving back to the planet – we make our handsurfers out of sustainable, recycled and reclaimed materials so that you can enjoy getting barrelled without leaving a trace. Our bodysurfing gear is focused on sustainability and recycling what we have available. To date, we’ve recycled more than 300kg of surfing wetsuits previously destined for landfill to create our adjustable hand straps.
Our range of bodysurfing Handplanes for sale are not only made from recycled materials, but we also plant one native tree within Australia for every handplane sold. To date, we’ve now planted well over 2,000 trees across the nation. #onehandplaneonetree
