Bodysurfer Mike Baker in New Zealand is officially a Slyde Stoke Ambassador! Mike surfed competitively in the United Kingdom and Europe for ten years. "I've bodysurfed in England, Ireland, France, Spain, Portugal, Greece, Australia, Samoa and New Zealand," Mike told Slyde. Through it all, he's never forgotten about bodysurfing. A friend introduced Mike to handboarding or "handgunning" in 1979, and he's been a huge fan every since. "I am so totally stoked to be a Stoke Ambassador and handboarding with Slyde -- the very best handboards I have used anywhere in the world," Mike said. Congratulations and welcome to the Slyde family, Mike!
