Handplanes and Handboards - What are they?
A handplane or handboard is a planing device that is strapped to the hand and provides lift and reduces drag whilst bodysurfing which allows the rider to turn and change direction with ease. This reduction in drag means you can catch more waves or extend your bodysurfing session. You only need one handboard and they can be used on either hand - which ever one feels more comfortable.
This video below by WAW Handplanes shows how it is done, enjoy.
