Our Workshop on Wheels tour is back for 2019, and this spring we’ll be hitting the road for a week to bring our “make your own bodysurfing handplane” sessions to a handful of Finisterre stores around the country.
We love nothing more than getting in the sea and swimming into a few waves; it’s a great way to enjoy the ocean when time is tight or conditions aren’t optimal for surfing, and we want to spread the joy of bodysurfing as far and wide as possible. Come and join us for a workshop session at your nearest Finisterre store to make your own wooden handplane alongside some like-minded folk. Handplanes really enhance your bodysurfing experience, allowing you more lift and control as you ride the wave. We’ll create a blank for you that has a concave running through it, and you’ll then draw out your template and cut the outline, shape the rails and sand it ready for its first coat of oil. We’ll be there each step of the way to offer all the advice and support you’ll need to make sure that you take home a handplane to be proud of.
We'll cut, shape and sand your handplane ready for its first coat of oil.
