Slyde Handboards believes in doing great things, and giving back in big ways.

Carlos our team rider from Canada recently completed a 365 day watermen challenge. In which he wave rode every day for 365 day without fail.  

The challenge in effort to raise awareness and education for skin cancer.  The most common type of cancer, and one dear to Carlos's heart as his father Marcel passed away from the disease. 

Slyde alongside Raw Elements USA honored Carlos's epic effort and his father by auctioning off an autographed Mark Cunningham Handboard & natural sunscreen package, with all proceeds going to Save Your Skin Foundation of Canada.

The auction saw a ton of action with the winning bid of $280 going to South African native Clint Buckham. 

Thank you Clint for your generous donation, and everyone who participated.

Remember to Save Your Skin and  those around you, apply your sunscreen and stay protected beach loving friends.
