Danny Hess making Handplanes Fullstop

Hess shaving wood. I saw a few of these when bumming around the States last year...super light, lithe, proportioned..they look good, and things that look good tend to go good....but they were alot bigger than I expected..I've never used a handplane that big.. must be a pain in the ass to swim with.. I'd probably just mount it on the wall and tell lies about the monster waves I caught with it.

  1. Hey mate love the blog. Just got into body surfing in huge way ans was wondering if you know of any good waves in victoria?

  2. I'm Sydney so I don't know Victoria that well, but I always had the view that if it works for surfboards, it'll work for whompers. I would have though some stretchs of bells with a fat handplane would have worked!
