From Wall to Waves, the Kuahiwi Handplane is a functional piece of surf culture, made for Bodysurfers of all levels. Our Kuahiwi model has been seeing waves in the Pacific since 2018. From the shores of Maui & O‘ahu, to surf trips in New Zealand / Aotearoa, up and down the California coast, and beyond, it's meant for adventure. For the days close to home, keep one in the truck or stashed in the trunk with your favorite fins - for when the waves are all-time.

Care Tips

1. Always rinse your handplane with fresh water after a surf.
2. Do not keep it in a bag soaking wet! Ensure it properly dries after each session.
3. Our handplanes do float, but consider using a leash on big days when the surf may rip the handplane out of your hand. Some folks like to use a leash all the time. These can be found wherever you buy fins.

All finishes are prone to natural wearing. For this reason, we do not warranty any of our products' finishes.
