Zach Hawkins new Slyde Team Ryder

We welcome Zach to the Slyde ryder team.  Zach, who resides in Carlsbad, California can be seen shredding on any given day!  Just look for the head in the water and it’s probably Zach about to get slotted on another bomb.  Zach shreds it like no one we've seen before, and he’s still in high school.  This kid is going places and Slyde is stoked to be behind him all the way! 

Zack rides the Woody Pro and in his words says,  "it’s the quickest board (he has) ever ridden". Getting slotted is what Zach is all about and with his talented photographer Jared Sislin, we will be seeing a lot of Zach.  Check out more images of  Zach here.
