Slyde Handboards was amped to give the gift of stoke to Cuba.

The Groundswell Community Project, hopped on a plane to Cuba with an amazing crew of women to experience a community of healing, empowerment, and unity through surfing.  Included in their surf care package was some Slyde swag & gear.

"The Ocean has always been my refuge, my reset button, reminding me alive."

Enjoy this inspiring short documentary of their journey & mission to Havana Cuba.
