Turn a small, hollow day – or big, unsurfable closeouts – into an all out barrel fest with an epic bodysurfing combo of DaFins and Enjoy Handplanes.
+ The large surface area of diamond tail Enjoy Handplane makes it easy to plane through barrels or across mushy, flatter sections
+ I dig that Enjoy Handplanes are made from recycled surfboards!
+ DaFins are simply the most comfortable swim fins I have ever worn. They hug your feet!
+ The ‘strake’ or hard rubber wraparound on the DaFins give you turbo propulsion
– The velcro strap on my Enjoy Handplane came loose after a few uses and it took a wee bit o tweaking to get it to stay on after
– The DaFins gave me a wee bit o chafing near the ankle the first few times I used them

Hello, welcome to Benny’s Boardroom! I’m Ben and welcome back! Wherever in the world you are, thank you very much for watching. If you’re into the show hit the subscribe button and don’t miss out on anything that’s going to be coming in the future.
Every now and then we’re going to look at something other than a surfboard because there isn’t a surfboard around me today. I tried something I never thought [00:00:30] I would get into and I had such a good time that I thought I’d share with you fine people.
I borrowed this bodysurfing handplane by Enjoy Handplanes called the ‘Llama’ and these swim fins by DaFins and went bodysurfing at this little wedgie barreling right hand beach break. Again, I never thought I’d enjoy bodysurfing that much but I had such a good time! I was kicking myself into these tiny little barrels and sticking this Enjoy Handplane into the face of the wave and watching these little barrels curl over me. [00:01:00] It was an awesome perspective and you know what? I reckon it will make me a better surfer because I think I learned a little more about the waves being so close to them.
Enjoy Handplanes are also made out of recycled surfboards. I’m not a big fan of waste. I think a lot of surfers aren’t. We’re pretty environmentally conscious because we realize that our playground is the ocean, and I like the fact that they’ve taken something that would have been waste and transformed into something so cool and beautiful as this little Llama handplane. This is quite a big handplane, probably [00:01:30] good for bigger people, but really, really fun to kind of slot into these little lefts and rights and to get barrelled like crazy on the Llama handplane by Enjoy.
And then as yin is to yang, there are these DaFins swim fins. I didn’t really know anything about swim fins until I started using them. These things are magical! I mean, I was kicking so hard into these waves. I literally felt like I was flying. I think that’s because, as you can see, it’s got this hard plastic ridge across here and that ridge runs all the way through the back here so it’s really one big, hard piece of plastic that then comes off and gets a little softer down here. [00:02:00] But that structure, I think, helps you to be able to kick into waves really, really easily. They’re also incredibly comfortable.
So those are swim fins by DaFins, a handplane by Enjoy called the Llama, and if you’ve never tried it don’t knock it until you give it a go. It is super, super fun. Thank you very much for watching Benny’s Boardroom!
Get barrelled like there’s no tomorrow with a handplane by Enjoy Handplanes and DaFins.
