Hawaiian Slyde Ryder Taylor Char was able to Slyde his way into 4th place at the 2014 Sandy Beach Bodysurfing Championships where he got the handle on a nice south swell. We were able to send Taylor a prototype of Slyde's new Hydroflex board just in time for him to use one during the competition (first photo below). It was a milestone in Slyde history, as he's the first to ride this new technology, and he had a blast! "The board looked awesome and felt sleek. The board performed great by giving me speed and control," Taylor said. "One of the contestants in my heat was surprised when he saw the smaller Hydroflex Board. He thought it was pretty cool that Slyde made a smaller handboard."
Taylor sent us a ton of phenomenal photos from the competition, as well as some awesome shots with a few Slyde Handboards. We couldn't choose any favorites...they're all incredible! Try to pick your favorites!
