Bobby ordered this one for his brother after sharing the handplane stoke with him. After seeing the pictures, he's claiming that he is keeping it for himself and giving his old one to brother. "The Brownfish" model made with Paulownia, waterborne finish, adjustable strap, and Military Grade submersible velcro. Tuned up with some custom stock car striping.

Here is a custom for David that I just finished up. He bought one the the El Gigante models at the beginning of last winter. Liked it a lot and wanted to get another plane. He asked if I could somewhat duplicate his old handgun (pictured last) that he had used prior to getting his newer plane. He liked the outline, but, wanted to try it with a little deep single concave into a spine, with a handle. Black stain. This is what I came up with. Should be getting some travel time up in Zuma this summer.

I have finally gotten around to getting pictures of all the specific models I am making. They are available for custom order now. South Coast Windansea Surfshop in Pacific Beach, CA should be getting thier first run of boards in less than two weeks. Surfy Surfy Surf Shop will be opening on May 1st in Leucadia, CA. They will also have stock boards available. Both shops will have a demo if you are interested in trying a Handplane out. Check em out at Brownfish Handplanes to review the models and more pics. Thanks for all your support and have a great week. G

I wish it were me, but, it's not. It's the striped board. Heading to Carlos for some crystal clear, carribean barrels. It's red, so, like mentioned below, it's gonna be fast. Adding the speed stripes is just a little turbo to get him off the foam ball and back out onto the face. All to repeat again. Thanks for the support Carlos.

There is a neat little happening down in South Australia. They have been making some Handplanes and such for quite a while. They recently started a blog called SCABS. It stands for South Coast Alaia and Bellyboard Society. I personally think that is stands for what most surfers think of us when we are out doing something other than surfing. It's OK though. Some day those surfers will be enlightened. They have invited me to occasionally post on their blog, which to me, is quite an honor. Keep up the great work guys!
