The Ecto Fly FishWood Hand Plane 11″ opens up a whole new realm for your surfing. Body surfing with this plane will allow you to take late takeoffs, big drops and go to places on the wave you’ve never been before. The plane is hand made from Paulownia wood sourced from sustainable Australian plantations. The Paulownia is a highly buoyant timber with lightweight and strength and ideal for surf products. It’s use is also super good for the environment as it removes the use of plastic and the entire polluting plastic production process. The trees when harvested to make the planes naturally grow again, helping the environment. So they’re no polluting, self generating and renewable.
The plane is designed for great performance in most wave conditions. As an all-rounder it has more area. The benefit of this is when you put your weight on it on a wave, your mass is distributed over more of the wave power so you go faster. The outline is well rounded so there’s no hard edges to catch. The rails are also full and rounded so if you do overbalance you also won’t catch. The plane will keep you up on the wave face, making the section. A velcro band keeps the plane secured to your hand and ensures a good fit. A strap ensures that if the plane does come off it won’t be lost. The light weight of the wood is apparent when you’re swimming out. It doesn’t take on water and remains bouyant. The eco story with the plane starts with the timber used and also covers the marine grade varnish that seals the wood that is also low in volatile chemicals. The plane is certified as Australian made from Australian grown plantations. Check our range of Surf Accessories at Manly Surfboards>Surf Accessories
