Thirdshade Bat Tail Handplane/Quickstrap Review

Where to Get Some: Thirdshade

No B.S. Summary

Thirdshade is a small, independent and unique retailer of retro-inspired surf products.  From boards and handplanes, to innovative and forward thinking accessories, Thirdshade is the real deal and the kind of company every surfer is looking for.

The Good

  • One of the fastest handplanes I've piloted to date! Also, the Quickstrap is one of the most innovative products I've seen hit the bodysurf/handplane market and it gives the rider versatility that can't be found anywhere else!!!

The Not So Good

  • Thirdshade is based in the U.K. so their gear needs to be shipped and goes thru customs which can hold up delivery a bit. However, they are well worth the wait and hopefully we'll be seeing more of them in our local shops soon!
