I love being in the ocean. Bodysurfing, bodyboarding, and Ocean Photography are my favorite hobbies. I try to get in the ocean as much as possible, and go every weekend. I would love to help grow Slyde as a company by using your merchandise. My friend Conrad Morgan is apart of the team and he says he loves it.

I’ve been interested in Slyde Handboards since I first saw them on Shark Tank. I love beaches, but because I live in Michigan, the only chances I get of going to a beach are during any vacations, which are hard to come by now that I am a medical student. When I spent a summer in La Jolla, CA, at the University of California, San Diego for a research program, I actually taught myself how to surf. It was hard getting used to it, but I felt amazing when I finally pulled it off. I spent days at La Jolla Shores and loved it. A year later, I visited a friend in Costa Mesa, and we went to both La Jolla Shores and Huntington Beach. I love the rising and crashing of waves. When I saw Slyde Handboards on Shark Tank, I imagined myself back at the beach using the handboard to surf. I am planning to visit California again this upcoming summer and would love to be a Slyde ambassador so that I can share my passion for beaches and waves not only with my friends and family but also with everyone in my situation living in a place with no beaches. Also, it would be cool to put this on my CV for when I am applying to residency programs at California hospitals especially!

I believe that I would be a great fit for a Slyde Ambassador position because I am very determined and motivated. I believe that I can achieve the goal of helping to shape the future of Slyde by sharing the products with my friends and everyone I come in contact with. I will share the product with surfers as well as body boarders on the beach. I can also share this amazing product with my college campus as I know that college-age individuals are a very big target-market for this product. I believe that I can achieve the mission statement of Slyde Handboards to not only inspire ocean adventures but also to help gather more of those special moments with family, friends & myself. Thank you so much for your time and I look forward to hearing back from you!

Well, I love to be in the ocean and I think your boards are equal to none. I also work at sea so I get to test them in different conditions, and different oceans. I found the boards extremely fun.

I’ve always been a huge fan of the sport and the lifestyle I’ve grown up in the water surfing and bodying surfing for almost 25 years and would love the opportunity to help to continue and grow the sport and lifestyle. I would like to be someone that groms can look to for advice and knowledge about the sport and company.
