New Slyde Handplane Videos

Here is some epic new footage from the GoPro lenses of Willy Cole and Dalton Smith. Both of these epic edits show exactly what it is that we love about slyding: Getting shacked on every wave and coming up with a grin like the Cheshire Cat. Just ask either of these guys what they thought.  "Epic" and "insane" are some of the verbs thrown around when they describe their Slyde session.

It does not take a genius to figure out why these guys love it so much.  You feel like a kid all over again. We all love surfing and we all love to be in the water.  Handplanes give you that extra bit of speed and lift to get you in and get you barreled longer and faster. It's an insane experience you just can't not like. Below is a bird's eye view that will get you smiling without even being out there.


Slyde Handboards team rider Willy Cole getting buried in Florida on some epic little nuggets.  Willy shows us you don't need epic conditions to find some shade.  Get in, get shacked and repeat.  The first epic sesh is from Slyde family's newest edition,  Dalton Smith from NPI Productions, fame shredding it up in Puerto Rico.

Check out more videos on our Slyde facbook page or on our Slyde YouTube Channel, and if you are feeling artsy, why not upload your own creation and show us how much you love to slyde your day away or send us your raw footage, and with our epic skills we will turn you into a Slyde Hero.
