I like this board for mushy waves or for small days, but it can handle big waves. I've gotten long rides with it and it can make steep drops. I use this board more as my longboard and the bula as my go to board for bigger days. The Wedge handboard is built to last and is a nice addition to my quiver. Stoked!! ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
Much easier to carry the handboard on a bike now. Only thing to figure out is how to attach the fins to the bag!
I grew up bodysurfing for the 1st 25 years of my life in CA and Baja. I loved the simplicity and immersion of bodysurfing much more than surfing. It seemed so primal, and utterly natural. Just add water! But I moved to Alaska and (duh) didn't body surf except on vacations. I moved back to CA at 58 yrs. old and am getting back into bodysurfing.
I saw Youtubes about handboarding and just had to try it. I looked at many brands and settled on Slyde because of the apparent quality and great reviews. I had my expectations pretty high, but was completely amazed when I received my board. Bought the whole package for just about $200 and it way surpassed my expectations. Craftsmanship is superb. The board is a beautiful thing!
The bag is perfect, well made, strong, easy to take with. The leash and hand strap are stout and I have every confidence in their durability. And I got the whole lot for less than comparable boards alone. But perhaps best of all are the folks at Slyde. The have been super supportive and friendly to work with. And dang I got my board fast... like 2 days! Now all I need is some surf big enough to enjoy it. Ha!⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
I was really skeptical at first. Long time surfer, swimmer, bodyboarder and sailor. I did not expect much but this is my third board from Slyde and it’s phenomenal! Takes off in even small waves and planes right across the face. So much fun. I am buying them as gifts for friends and family. Catch the wave and you will not regret it ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
Great little board, great look, great grip on the wave. Awesome quality, awesome price. Maybe not the best choice for beginners, but a MUST for the serious wave rider!!! So far, my favorite of all 4 my Slyde boards. Go Slyde!!!! ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
