bodysurfing handplanes

Bodysurfing is the most stripped back form of wave riding. No equipment is needed, although a pair of swim fins and a handplane will definitely increase the fun factor. I'd wanted to try making a handplane for a while, but felt that carving one out of solid wood, as is often done, wouldn't quite give me what I was looking for: a stiff, light, buoyant board with a pronounced concave that wouldn't warp too much through constant wetting and drying. Laminated out of cork and wood veneers, these little beauties fit the bill nicely.
