Designed to maximise speed in the water and improve your chances of getting on the wave without cramping your bodysurfing style, Wave Blades use a lightweight foam filled glove construction giving each finger control over the movement of the "board". Integrating the glove into the bodysurfing device also ensures that they can't come off as you paddle for a wave (or get dumped) and the foam padding acts to cushion the bumps as you slide down the face. Each pair of Wave Blades is hand-made in the US by Bob Davis, who first came up with the design in the summer of 1987 at Long Beach New York. Tired of being "left to eat alot of wakes" in the 8-10 ft waves, Davis was inspired to draw up plans for a body surfing aid that was easy to swim with, didn't get away from you and was able to hold a high line as well as delivering exceptional control and allowing you to "dolphin" into the wave.
