  • What you'll learn

  • Meet your teacher

  • Is it any good?

  • If you’re unfamiliar with body surfing, a hand plane is a wooden paddle that allows riders to cut across the face of a wave. Over the course of this full day lesson, Dave will show you why it’s best to keep things simple, using just wood and pure tung oil to make a hand plane that, with enough love and attention, will last a lifetime. You’ll pick the shape of your hand plane, then cut, sand and oil it, leaving you with a finished product that's wall art worthy when it's not propelling you through the water.
  • Dave believes that the best things in life are natural. He can’t believe that environmentally conscious surfers still take synthetic materials into the sea, and has decided to do something about it. Since launching his company South Hand Crafted, last year, he’s been putting his handmade wooden boards through their paces. He now believes he has a product that can almost guarantee a lifetime of ocean-based fun. There’s not a problem in the world that Dave doesn’t think can be fixed by getting in the sea.
