About the CharitySurfrider Foundation
The Surfrider Foundation is a community of everyday people who passionately protect our playground - the ocean, waves, and beaches -that provide us so much enjoyment.
We love the beach and ocean! Swimming, surfing and bodysurfing are the way we enjoy the water. While bodysurfing recently, we were talking about hand planks that many people use to bodysurf. The plank is worn on your hand and creates a hydroplane effect that lets you rise up out of the water and carve or trim into the wave to get longer rides.
You can buy all kinds of hand planks in surf shops and online, but it just seems like a great little project to create your own. So that's what we are going to do for a short little funddeed project that will benefit the Surfrider Foundation.
Follow along and watch as we figure out how it's done and share the process. Maybe you'll decide to make your own. If you do, share it with us! And let us know your thoughts in the comments. Of course, if you like what we are doing, please help support the Surfrider Foundation with a generous donation!
Thanks and enjoy!!
