Here's the verdict.
"Shaped in Cornwall from local, sustainable wood by James Otter. The hollow wooden construction and low rocker means this board is perfect for gliding through flat spots. It feels heavy on land but turns beautifully in the water. This is a board for life and one to hand down to the grandkids!"

One of our handplanes also got a little mention "Wooden 16" Handplane: Perfect choice for surfers on a budget or those who need to get to waves using public transport! It takes a while to perfect the technique, but once mastered there is plenty of fun to be had. Bodyboard fins (swim fins) are a must for improved wave catching."
