We love that there’s a slew of you out there amped to represent Slyde on land and in the water. And know that we’re always talent scouting to see who’s shredding what, and appreciate every #slydehandboards you throw up online.
But, truth be told being a sponsored team rideris a hard-fought battle that combines exceptional bodysurfing/handboarding skills along with a charming stoked personality.
All of our team riders are first chosen as Slyde Ambassadors, and after showing off what they’re made of to the world, they may eventually become a sponsored team rider.
We view our sponsorship program like an education in stoke.
In high-school, if you want to be an honor roll student, you don’t just roll up to the principle and tell him that’s what you want.
We want to see the same from our riders, it’s about putting in the effort and sharing your wave-riding talents and experience thru pictures, videos, blogs, interpretive dance, music, whatever makes you standout & stoked on Slyde.
Now that you have the breakdown of what we look for in sponsoring a team rider, we’re stoked to see what you have in store for us in 2016!
