Paulownia wood is a lightweight hardwood that does not soak up salt water and is perfect for making hand planes, Alaias and Paipos. Once shaped, simply oil with lanolin oil and go surfing!
Not only can you create your own template for a hand plane to ride on those flatter days, but the coolest thing about them is that you can make adjustments to the board in between each surf simply by sanding or planing some more and then re-coating with lanolin oil.
