POD EGO 225mm 9" Wood Handboard Bodysurfing Handplane
POD EGO 225mm 9" Wood Handboard Bodysurfing Handplane. The Little EGO 225mm 9 inch Cedar Walnut POD® Handboards 100% Custom Built For Bodysurfing. There’s nothing quite like our beautifully crafted POD handboards shapes, our 225mm/9inch solid Cedar and Walnut Hand Body Soul® bodysurfing handplanes are crafted like no other.
Little EGO POD Handboard perfectly fits in the palm of your hand and in some cases just past your figure tips. EGO was not only intended for single use, but also purposely designed to bodysurf with one on either hand, increasing your lifting force, balance and double your swimming stroke, the little Ego is sure to boost any bodysurfer’s self-confidence.
Since the late ’80s, our founder and artisan Shane Vassallo with a passion for bodysurfing, has been hand shaping each handboard out of select grade Australian or Canadian cedar and limited range of other wood species.
For the very first time, Shane has designed ergonomic palm hold and support on the handboard deck surface, between the new purposely custom-built 50mm/2inch hand strap retainer inserts to suit 50mm/2inch webbing strap. Not like other bodysurfing handplanes use of a small 25mm/1inch surfboard plug and a thin handboard strap causing discomfort over the hand. The palm support relieves the arm muscles from stress, typically from handplanes with flat decks and most of all holds your hand in place, prevents your hand from slipping out from under the double padded neoprene strap.
