The #wastetowaves bodysurfing handplane by foam. & OTHERS is made from the milk bottles used in foam’s café in Bundoran, Ireland. It is a circular design collaboration, using waste to create a unique and functional waveriding craft.
Bodysurfing is the act of riding a wave without a surfboard by “planing” on the chest and stomach. This handplane is strapped to one hand and helps catch and ride waves by giving direction and lift. With the rising popularity of sea swimming and surfing, bodysurfing is an inclusive (and seriously fun) way to enjoy the ocean and experience the feeling of surfing.
PROCESS: The making of each handplane helps 10 HDPE milk bottles find a new purpose. Every bottle used in foam is intercepted, cleaned, melted, molded and hand finished to create each plane. This entire process happens in the workshop at the back of foam’s cafe. Read more about the process here.
Unique: Each plane is completely unique. The patterns on the deck and underside are a result of our hand-made process; combining different colours (from HDPE bottle caps) every time a new plane is melted and moulded.
A note on colours: Choose a general colour scheme from the drop-down menu and we will do our best to accomodate your preference. The colours pictured in this listing are different from the ones in stock at the moment.
