Hand Board | Hand Surfer
If you’re having a bad day, catch a wave!
If you love bodysurfing or bodyboarding then it’s time to upgrade to a Good Wave handboard (also known as hand surfers). Our handboards spread out your surface area while bodysurfing and increase your buyoancy, getting you higher out of the water and into the wave with more control.
Good Wave has the best handboard collection, with the Salt Creek Classic Handboard (best for beginners), GoFloats Body Surfing Handplane/Handboard (if you like speed), Slyde Grom Soft top Bodysurfing Handboard (lightweight) and so on which is no more than 19 inches long and fits on your hand with an adjustable strap.
A bodysurf handboard also allows you to steer and guide yourself on the wave. The most important fact is it doesn’t require any prior experience and the waves can be cut up like a pro!
Bodysurfers need only a small handboard and can go anywhere! Bring it anywhere, handboards are compact and lightweight which is capable of fitting in any backpack whereas a traditional surfboard is up to 40 kg.
Other advantages of hand surfers include a lower price point than a traditional surfboard, super convenient for beginners (anyone can bodysurf!)
There's been a ton of innovation in the past few years in handboards, and this mini surfing board is getting famous day by day for its price and accessibility. The buoyancy of the handboard allows you more lift out of the water and therefore more speed and longer rides on the wave. The most experienced bodysurfers take take it to the next level with more waves and most importantly, more barrel time.
Size, material, and wave type- these three are the buying guide to choose the best surfing handboards which are available in our collection.
Best off, our handboards are high quality and safe for all ages!
So, what are you waiting for? Grab your favorite color and catch a wave!
