Standup Paddleboarding aka SUP is taking over the water ways.  From the ocean to rivers to lakes and even ponds, I doubt you'll find a waterway that doesn't have some serious SUP action taking place.

6 Reasons Why If You SUP You Should SLYDE

    1. You're an adventurous waterman or woman. Being landlocked results in unhappiness,  unease, and bouts of spontaneous wanderlust. For you extreme euphoria is as simple as just adding water.
    2. You have limited time to learn something completely new. Handplanes are so simple to master it doesn't matter what age or skill level you are.  You will have the time of your life, even your first time out.
    3. You're all about the total bodywork, and Crossfit just isn't your style.  Handboarding delivers a mix of cardio, strengthening training,  and excellent combination of upper and lower body muscle toning. Be warned handboarding may result in serious shredding.
    4.  You're money conscious.  Unlike an expensive hobby like polo or golf,  handboarding is easy on the pocketbook, and requires no continuous monetary investment. 
    5.  You've had enough loading, packing, and carrying your Standup Paddleboard. It's time to travel-light.  Weighing in at a mere 650grams, a Slyde Handboard, is small enough for even a cat to carry (although we don't advise doing so).
    6. You recognize that experiencing the water from a different perspective, only enhances your stoke.  New water adventures breed a great capacity to smile bigger and embrace epic

Not sold on it

I had really high hopes. I have been able to use the Bula on a couple good days. I'm liking my old board better so far. But will try it a couple more times before I return it just to be sure. I have none of the below issues with my Enjoy planer, and thinking of going back.
1. The dam thing is not secure on my hand. No mater how tight I make it. It litterally pops off my hand while on a wave. Its getting really anoying having to constantly pay attention to it.
2. I switch my hand depending on the wave direction. It's tough for me to get a grip on the nose, pull it off then pull tightly on other hand in time. I've missed a couple good ones because of this.
3. The pad that goes accross the top of my hand doesnt cover my whole hand and the seam starts to rub on my hand and is uncomfortable.
4. Not a huge deal but wasnt happy that there were some small cosmetc defects on the board. Eslescially for the price
5. The board bag is kind of ridiculous. Its huge and picture on website isnt to scale, but I probably just wont use it. It was basically free.

I think the only thing I can say positive is I think it has good control... after getting used to the angle I need, and may be a bit more bouyant to pull me out of water for speed. But i need to try it a few times more and figure out how to keep the dam thing on!

I am giving these to my grandsons at the end of the month. I am sure they will love them.

Bula hand board

This handboard is exactly what I was looking for. The size and craftsmanship is fantastic! I have gotten some great rides with this board. Super fun.

Ready for the Senior Tour

I received my Slyde Phish just before 2 weeks of gloomy weather. Now that I’ve had a chance to road test it, I can’t wait to get back in the water.

Growing up in Long Island NY, body surfing was my first wave gliding experience. Typically we would drive straight to shore so surfing the diagonal has been a learning curve.

I look forward to many great sets this summer.
