"This is a very big day for me personally as well as the sport of bodysurfing/handboarding at large. As a fellow South African, I surfed the same breaks as Twiggy, and grew up watching in admiration as his surfing career unfolded. It's always a true honor to meet one of your heroes, but to work with them is a special day indeed. What an incredible day, and what an incredible opportunity for the bodysurfing community." Steve Watts Slyde Founder
Twiggy is arguably one of the most respected watermen of our generation. The Slyde x Twiggy partnership was made public just days before the 2019 WSL Big Wave Awards for Men's XXL RIDE of the Year, in which Twiggy is a nominee.
Twiggy was the perfect fit for Slyde in that he believes the ocean should be enjoyed, respected, like us grew up bodysurfing and believes in riding everything - let the waves determine your board of choice. "Have Fun. Ride Everything."We are so humbled and excited to kick off this perfect partnership.
