Michelle is a visual artist from Tampa, Florida. Working in a variety of media, she is inspired heavily by her natural surroundings, often infusing her art with elements relating to her interest in the supernatural. Michelle received a Fine Arts degree from University of South Florida College of The Arts in 2006 and spent 5 years as an arts educator. During her time teaching she remained active as an artist through commission work, events, and painting occasional murals. In 2015, she began painting murals with Tony Krol under the duo name Illsol and in 2017 they co-founded Merge Culture gallery.
The wood is spruce from Santa Cruz Guitar Company production offcuts. We glassed it with Entropy Resins, a bio-based epoxy, and Aerialite Surf Glass. The hand strap is nylon and adjustable. It is covered with neoprene from a Buell Wetsuit, and the wood is shaped with our unique, ergonomic hand fit. The hardware is solid brass. As with all Ventana handplanes, this one floats so you can easily pass it between friends in the waves.
It comes with a free cinch sack made by Sagebrush Boardbags from coffee bags and remnant fabrics.
You only need a single handplane on your leading arm for a great ride every time! This is a terrific conversation piece in your home and will slice you across the face of any sized surf.
Shaped, finished, and designed in Santa Cruz, California by master artisan, Martijn Stiphout
