We are Airplane
The first model from Airplane is now available from a limited 50 numbered pieces. Each Airplane is a unique piece of work with a one-of-kind wooden signature. 100% hand crafted and available with a matte or gloss finish. Airplanes are made from light but strong teak wood from sustainable en certified forests in Indonesia. Get yours in our webshop.
Our main focus is to offer unique handcrafted handplanes for bodysurfing while giving back to the local community in Indonesia. From every Airplane sold a portion of the profit is invested in local projects to support surfing and nature around Indonesia. We only work together with skilled craftsman and make sure our environmental footprint stays as small as possible. Checkout our blog for the latest projects involving Airplane!
Fair for all
Airplanes are proudly made by skilled woodcrafters in Indonesia. Their skills are handed over from generation to generation. We are proud to have the chance to work with one of the best local shapers around. We make sure they get a fair share of every Airplane produced. Next to honest labour we also invest a portion of every Airplane sold back to the local community. We invest in surf and nature related projects. Check all the updates in our blog.
From controlled forests
All Airplanes are made from teak wood from certified controlled forests in Java and Bali. Airplane is 100% sustainable, that means that for every tree used, another one is replaced. We keep away from the ancient rainforests and only work with ‘good’ wood. Teak is a perfect fit, because it grows relatively quick and even the smallest pieces get used, so no waste. This way we make sure that future generations can enjoy the beautiful rainforests in Indonesia!
Everything starts with an idea. A simple ‘What if…’. A thought that crosses your mind in an unexpected moment. But most ideas don’t have a long lasting life. They fly off in a sea of thoughts to never be seen again. But sometimes they hold on, keep coming back, and slowly transform into reality.
