::Reef break Handplaning::

Some of the nicest handplane footage I've seen... bodysurfing a ledgey reef break on the northern beaches of Sydney called LA... I'm told that before body boards and shortboards swept onto the scene it was the old bellyboards/ paipos and bodysurfers that dominated this break...

Its a millpond out there today..but with a 4-6ft swell coming in from the south this week...its time to get limbered up...There is no better xmas present than a good swell...

::Why I Bodysurf::

...."I’ve confused my friends on many occasions by grabbing a handplane and fins on a perfect day, instead of a surfboard. “Why don’t you surf out here? Look how perfect it is!” My reply is always similar, “Sure, it’s perfect. Perfect for bodysurfing.”....Mark Lukach

Mark knows it... we know it... You know it... bodysurfing is just too much fun... Published on the surf commentary website, Mark has given his personal testimonial about his love of bodysurfing...

You need to read this. "Why I Bodysurf"

Our smile got bigger and bigger as we read.. San Francisco to Sydney... It's all the same...

::Wrapped in Neoprene::

Bodysurfing in a wetsuit... Never tried it so I wouldn't know, but really? Can it be as good?...

Mr Nick Allen thinks so as his beautiful photos show...His photos really capture the bodysurfing experience as it is at sea level..

I encourage you to check out his work.
