Hot Tub Perch Handplane
This very special, performance, bodysurfing handplane is made of old growth redwood from a hot tub salvaged in Aptos, California. It incorporates, laser-cut, reclaimed wooden "fish scales" that match the Barred Surfperch 5'10", our 100th surfboard!
The "fish scales" were created from cocobolo, flame maple, Indian rosewood, koa, Honduras mahogany, walnut, and meranti offcuts from Santa Cruz Guitar Company production. We also used padauk from Thamer Design & Woodworking.
As with all Ventana handplanes, the nylon webbed strap is adjustable and covered with neoprene left over from O'neill Wetsuit research and development.
Included free are a Sagebrush Board Bag made of a reclaimed coffee sack and remnant material.
Handmade in Santa Cruz, California and designed by master craftsman Martijn Stiphout
Dimensions: 14" x 9" x 3/4"
