Bucket List Must: Watching 4th Of July Fireworks From the Ocean

Fourth of July

Let the land dwellers crowd the shorelines! It is your chance to embrace your FREEDOM in the salty waters of the ocean. Slyde Handboad's Top 3 Reasons Why there's no better way to Celebrate Independence Day than on your Handboard.

1. Red. Heart. Surfers, handboarders, bodysurfers, boogie Boarders and ocean enthusiasts alike know our blood pumps faster in the water. Express your patriotic pride while living your passion. Life, liberty, and the pursuit of stoke awaits!

2.  White Peace. Unattached to the land, beyond the break, in the darkness of the cool waters, a new type of peace exists. Concerns about the next big set, and being dropped in on are irrelevant. It's just you and your vocal cords, fully amped to belt out the Star Spangled Banner to the night.

3. Blue The Ocean. As true watermen and women, this is our home. There's nowhere else you need to be. Add a healthy dose of fireworks reflecting off the water and falling down around you... You'll have a light show that would make Pink Floyd jealous.

Wherever you find yourself this Fourth of July holiday, be sure to make it epic! If you find yourself checking this off your bucket list we'd love to share your story. Please email Michelle.
