i recently got bitten by the body surfing bug thanks to some videos featuring hand planes on www.korduroy.tv. i shaped one using hand tools and posted some pics on elride. I still dont have any swim fins so its a little tricky holding position in galveston around jetties w/ the current but ive found that the inside at SS is super fun for body surfing thanks to the new sand. hand planes are suuuuuuper fun. getting barreled on a waist high day is the best.
