Handplane barrels with Willy Cole and Morgan

The boys are at it again. Willy Cole and Morgan Grosskreutz areshredding up the East Coast with another epic handplane session.  Can you believe this is taken out of the back of their neighborhood? My God, some people get all the luck. Nevertheless, let's not get too green with envy and marvel at this epic shot.  At least we can live vicariously through the boys from Florida, even if it is from afar.

Willy has been perfecting his peace sign drop in, and it is quickly becoming a trademark of the legendary waterman. You can check out the YouTube of Willy being planted in a few epic slow-mos on the Slyde YouTube Channel.  We also have a quick rundown in 1.2.3 style on how to get you own trademark peace or shaka sign going as you get pitted.  However remember, keep your eye on the prize.  It’s not as easy as it looks.  A good flogging into the nearest sand bar is not that far away.
