Handboard Birthday Celebration

A 50th birthday celebration of epic proportions! Happy 50th birthday to Bilal Mansour of Lagos, Nigeria: a dude nowhere close to "over the hill".  Bilal is slydeing into fun barrels on the daily and is full of pure stoke with his handplane. He’s a true waterman passionate about handboarding who's dedicated to the joy of the sport.

In honor of his big day, his family surprised him with the coolest birthday cake ever seen!  This cake is a tasty piece of art! Like a 3D postcard, the cake captures Bilal rocking his birthday suit. And in his true bodysurfing style, accelerating on a frosty barrel so hard on his Slyde Handboard, Jaws can't even catch him.  Cheers to another action packed year and letting the Grom in you shine!  Thanks for putting a smile on everyone’s face!  Epic. bro!
