As bodysurfers we're a small community united by our love and stoke for the ocean.

We may live worlds apart, have our own unique styles, speak another language, or prefer different brands, yet the ocean has a way of washing away all differences and connecting us.

Although, I didn't know Vincent aka @goodvibes_84 personally, his larger than life Instagram presence brightened up my days. Having grown up on the East Coast, he brought that healthy dose of NJ vibes, and the feeling of home.  He leaves behind an inspiring legacy of kindness, Cheeeheeyewww's, shakas, good vibes,and fearless bodysurfing.

In the words of Vincent himself from Sole Handplanes...

"Bodysurfing truly brings me peace, love, comfort, happiness, harmony, joy, and has humbled me in many ways. I'll continue to bodysurf for as long as I can! So I am on my way, a journey of itself, a journey discovering likeminded people, a journey to have fun, a journey to encounter the mysterious the unknown whatever that may be. And I love it that way cause that's what makes the journey that much better, not knowing what you'll discover. "

We hope you find your peace and keep on charging.

The leash works amazing i won't go out without my leash on....

Bula hand board

This handboard is exactly what I was looking for. The size and craftsmanship is fantastic! I have gotten some great rides with this board. Super fun.

Ready for the Senior Tour

I received my Slyde Phish just before 2 weeks of gloomy weather. Now that I’ve had a chance to road test it, I can’t wait to get back in the water.

Growing up in Long Island NY, body surfing was my first wave gliding experience. Typically we would drive straight to shore so surfing the diagonal has been a learning curve.

I look forward to many great sets this summer.

So much fun!

These little boards are amazing! We bought a couple to bring with us to Hawaii and had a blast.. super easy to travel with, just fit right in my backpack. Made riding the waves so much fun and worked just as good as a full sized boogie board one of my friends had. Highly recommended. Can’t wait to try it out again!

Love my Bula!

I recently been spending a lot of time on the North Shore of Oahu, and there’s nothing better than the Bula for bigger more intense surf. Too much fun brah! Mahalo nui loa!
