Ecto Fly FishWood Hand Plane 11″
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.
Paulownia is a highly buoyant timber with light weight 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 you’re surfing with a non-polluting, self generating and renewable plane.
The Ecto Fly FishWood Hand Plane is specially designed for all-round great performance in most wave conditions. It has more area distributing your weight over more of the wave power so you go faster. With a well-rounded outline there’s no hard edges to catch.
The rails are also full and rounded so if you do overbalance you won’t catch. A velcro band keeps the plane secured to your hand and ensures a good fit. A leash strap keeps the plane attached even if it comes off. The light weight of the wood is apparent making it easy when you’re swimming out. It doesn’t take on water and remains buoyant.
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 full range of Surf Accessories at Manly Surfboards>Surf Accessories
