Ecto Bodysurfing Handplanes - Glass 11" Ray Collins 'Sunburst' (Ltd Ed.)
A guide to choosing your handplane
All Ecto Handplanes perform equally well for all ages and abilities.
However they do offer different feelings and advantages in the water
3 key differences between the Ecto Glass 11" and Ecto Wood 11"
Ecto Glass - PU Foam & Fibreglass
• Ultra light PU shaped and glassed with polyester resin (like a surfboard)
• The construction is more buoyant and gives more life than the density of wood
• The extra float in the foam help you slide further when bodysurfing in average
Ecto Wood - Paulownia Wood
• Very durable sustainable Australian grown plantation Paulownia timber.
• Hand shaped to a super thin construction for superior paddling
• Performs well in all waves including large steep hollow barrels.
Ecto Glass - Moderate Rails
• Moderately sharp rail edges that give you hold and control
• Generally more versatile in all conditions.
Ecto Wood - Sharp Rails
• Sharper rail edges that offer extra hold in critical conditions
3. GOPRO MOUNT:
• Built-in GoPro nose plug mount and that provides
• Safe and easy way to attach an action camera to the handplane.
• No GoPro mount due to the ultra-thin design
Each are different so you really have to try each one out for yourself!

“Bodysurfing means stripping everything back, and being able to ride pure energy vibrations. The drive the Ecto provides while scooping and moulding yourself into the wave is second to none - this handplane helps to be 'in' the wave as much as 'on' the wave.” – Ray Collins
Ecto Handplanes X Ray Collins – Limited Edition ‘Sunburst’ Signature Model
Ecto Handplanes has collaborated with international photographer and bodysurfer Ray Collins to create a limited edition signature model with his stunning well-known photograph Sunburst.
The artwork aims to epitomize the drive and inspiration that Ray and bodysurfers alike share in clambering out of bed in the dark each morning to celebrate the sun rising over the sea in pursuit of waves. The image features as a high quality digital fabric print laid within the durable foam-fibreglass construction and comes with a certificate of authentication hand signed by Ray Collins. Strictly limited edition of 100.
