THE SLYDE HANDBOARDS AMBASSADOR PROGRAM WAS DESIGNED TO BE AN ALL-INCLUSIVE WHOMP CLUB/COMMUNITY FOR WATER LOVING PEOPLE AROUND GLOBE.

WE ASK ALL SLYDE BRAND AMBASSADOR APPLICANTS THE QUESTION "WHY DO YOU WANT TO BE A SLYDE AMBASSADOR" SOME PEOPLE GIVE US A SINGLE EMOJI RESPONSE...

Others like Virginia Beach Bodysurfer Jordan Schmitt's response tells us a story worth sharing. 

"I already am a Slyde Ambassador I just don't have the title yet. I own 3 Slydes and have purchased another one for a family friend as a birthday gift. In addition, I have written several user reviews on both Amazon and your website. Angela and I have even traded a few emails and pictures along the way. Enough with my credentials.

Here is the real reason I want to be an ambassador. I simply love body surfing and your product takes an already awesome experience and gives it just a little extra umph that makes it even more "awesome-er"! I grew up in Pittsburgh, PA but every summer my family would visit the Outer Banks of North Carolina.

My dad was never really into sports and didn't teach me how to swing a bat or shoot a basketball. BUT, he did teach me how to body surf and I loved it! We would body surf all day long every single day for a solid week. Then we would return to Pittsburgh and I would hold onto those memories until I got the chance the next summer to make new memories.

Now I am a 42 year old not very fit/athletic Dad. live in VA Beach, VA. Like my Dad I passed on my love for body surfing to my two boys. We go to the beach several times a week during the summer months. We usually go with our neighbors who are like family and we bring all 4 of the Slyde Handboards with us.

We ride, wipe out, laugh, and share experiences. We see who can catch the longest ride and each one of us claims to hold the title. My teenager boy and his friends let their guard down and focus on having fun and less on "being cool".

My youngest, who is 11, is fearless with his Slyde and and I can see the look in his eye that I had as a child -- he simply loves hanging out with his Dad and making memories.

Gift Set - Wedge Handboard

SECRET STASH - Grom Soft Top

Not sold on it

I had really high hopes. I have been able to use the Bula on a couple good days. I'm liking my old board better so far. But will try it a couple more times before I return it just to be sure. I have none of the below issues with my Enjoy planer, and thinking of going back.
1. The dam thing is not secure on my hand. No mater how tight I make it. It litterally pops off my hand while on a wave. Its getting really anoying having to constantly pay attention to it.
2. I switch my hand depending on the wave direction. It's tough for me to get a grip on the nose, pull it off then pull tightly on other hand in time. I've missed a couple good ones because of this.
3. The pad that goes accross the top of my hand doesnt cover my whole hand and the seam starts to rub on my hand and is uncomfortable.
4. Not a huge deal but wasnt happy that there were some small cosmetc defects on the board. Eslescially for the price
5. The board bag is kind of ridiculous. Its huge and picture on website isnt to scale, but I probably just wont use it. It was basically free.

I think the only thing I can say positive is I think it has good control... after getting used to the angle I need, and may be a bit more bouyant to pull me out of water for speed. But i need to try it a few times more and figure out how to keep the dam thing on!

I am giving these to my grandsons at the end of the month. I am sure they will love them.
