Waveblades are a bodysurfing product designed to enhance the surfer’s experience through increased speed, balance, and mobility. Waveblades are two hand-planes that each hand slides into so that they can glide smoothly across the water like mini-surfboards for the hands. The Waveblades are innovatively crafted and patented devices that amplify the bodysurfing experience.
Bodysurfing has existed for decades and possibly even centuries while using all sorts of devices to ride waves from driftwood to inflatable rafts to Boogie Boards, anything that can increase the surface area of the swimmer while bodysurfing.
While many bodysurfers have not typically used any type of board, those who have tried Waveblades immediately love the product, saying that they catch twice as many waves and ride each wave more than twice as long and the Waveblades do not interfere with their style of riding. Waveblades are a revolutionary product that increase acceleration and buoyancy above all other hand-boarding products. The biggest advantage you hear from pure bodysurfers time and time again is waveblades do not interfere in a bodysurfers unique style of wave riding. The user incorporates the waveblade into their style as opposed to how handboards force the user to conform to a handboarding style which is very limited. Waveblades are an extension of the body and therefore can be placed an unlimited variety of positions which regular handboards cannot. Waveblades can be positioned underneath the rider, at their side, arms Spread apart for better balance and two handboards distribute the riders wieght more evenly as opposed to all the riders weight on one handboard, Spreading out the users body weight on two boards essentially makes the rider lighter and therefore faster. The waveblades peripheral lip is designed in such a way the water moves smoothly over the bottom from any position. The rider can point them forward or turn their wrist completely around so that the boards are faced backward as if riding like a seal and the waveblades will still have great lift and wont catch an edge The application and use of waveblades are uonly limited by the users imagination.
A bodysurfer will use essentially the same technique of catching the wave while hand-boarding. As the wave rolls towards the hand-boarder, they kick hard with their fins and use their arms in a freestyle swim stoke for that extra push. The forward momentum of the wave will pick them up and carry them with it as they streamline their body. This is when they extend the Waveblades with arms outstretched out in front of them, behind them under them in a myriad of positions , gliding along the slope of the wave and really gaining the advantage of the surface area of the dual Waveblades over the single hand boards on the market today.
Waveblades come as a pair for both hands as compared to every other hand-board in the market that are only sold for single handed use. One handboard may be acceptable for experts who have been bodysurfing or handboarding many years, but it can be dangerous for the less experienced as well as less enjoyable. Using two Waveblades will still cost less than the majority of single hand boards on the market.
Additionally, Waveblades are the only hand-board that is shaped to the hand with a glove and a complete formed palm support that makes it very easy to swim with as it puts the hand into a natural arched position giving the user better leverage when swimming and this fit prevents it from ever coming off as the user can grip into it when pressure pulling on the waveblades get great and this fit provides the best support and control for maneuvering on the wave. The mold and glove palm support aspect gives each finger control over the movement of the board and really allows the bodysurfer to feel like it is an extension of their arm. Waveblades are lightweight, streamlined, easy to wear, and adds speed and to the pure pleasure of bodysurfing. And in phosphorescent colors they look cool as well.
Waveblades will also appeal to recreational and competitive swimmers by enhancing their upper body workout. In addition, the foam blades keep your hands as warm as wearing neoprene wetsuit gloves.
One of the biggest differentiating factors is that Waveblades come with two handboards (for both hands) compared to the others in the market. Competitors sell their handboard as a single board used by just one hand. Offering two Waveblades provides a much better user experience. Experienced users gravitate towards using two handboards because it provides more control, flexibility and agility when riding a wave. Not only do more experienced users enjoy the two-handboard experience better, but those who are new to the sport will also benefit. Having a second board gives the user more support when in the water and trying to catch a wave. This offers an additional safety component for new users that is not seen with the competition. Waveblades have a foam component injected around the corners offering more control in the ocean and additional safety, particularly for less experienced surfers.
Waveblades are designed to become a part of your hand, offering a superior fit than strapped wooden or glass handboards. Competitors that offer sizes that may be too big or too small and pose a hazard and safety issue, especially for the less experienced. Waveblades are built in multiple sizes and offer a customized fit in order to have the best glove like feeling and provide the best user experience. Other competitors utilize straps or handles for the user to hold on to while trying to ride a wave. However this makes it hard to ride a wave under water and can easily be lost in the water if not held correctly. Waveblades offer better support with the glove-like fit and the natural palm grip made into the foam base of the product. Waveblades offer a comfortable fit that works better in the water and feel like extensions of the user’s body. They are lightweight, using durable and safe materials, with a design honed over years of development.
