Callen Busch began building handplanes out of salvaged wood during a flat spell in San Diego. The lack of surfable waves pushed him to explore new methods of waveriding. Over the last five years he has refined his skills and created dozens of unique handplanes out of beautiful, exotic woods.

In this episode of Thumbnails, Callen discusses his creative process and the joys associated with creating a one of a kind piece of functional art.
