Meet Slyde's newest ambassadors of stoke.

WE LAUNCHED THE AMBASSADORPROGRAM TO COMPLIMENT OUR TEAM RIDER PROGRAM, AND HAVE SEEN AN ON SLOT OF AMPED WATER LOVING PEOPLE FROM AROUND THE GLOBE APPLYING TO BE A PART OF THIS EPIC COMMUNITY.  

We ask all Slyde brand ambassador applicants the question
"Why do you want to be a Slyde Ambassador" and below are 9 thoughtful responses that earned these ambassadors acceptance letters.
 

Chris JAWS Espirituof Santee CA  

"To inform people that you don't need a surfboard or bodyboard to feel the rush of catching and wave Slyde'n! Just get out there and have fun with family and friends."

Sarah Olsen Huntington Beach, CA 

"I would love to be a Slyde Ambassador because I love the ocean and everything that it has to offer. I always try to spend lots of time in the ocean and enjoy it. Being an ambassador would help me let others know how great the ocean is and what great things that you can do in it."

Joshua Ryan of Bluemont VA 

"As an east coast Slyder, more specific the mid-Atlantic, life in the water can be a lonely place. I have been a torpedo person my whole life, there's nothing more exciting than kicking into a macking barrel and slyding out the back door at just the right moment. Slyde is a great product and will do all I can to spread the positive vibes!"
 

Christopher Yang of San Francisco CA

"I have been a Slyde fan since the very beginning. I currently own 5 handboards and was a backer on kickstarter. I'm one of the few bodysurfers out here in SF at Ocean Beach and would love to spread the stoke out here!"

Darren Edwards of Australia 

"I've been a fan of the brand since I discovered what a handplane was a couple of years ago. I started taking pics with my GoPro Session 6 months ago during the Australian summer and am getting continually stoked with my images.

I'm frothing to get a Slyde hand plane for the coming summer and start producing some images with more purpose, especially with a company I respect. I'm out in the water every day when the weather is good. My images are getting better and I love having surf photography as a hobby. I'm starting to frame and sell images and it is a passion I love."  

Andy Putnamof Catalina Island, CA

"I fell in love with the Slyde family and the boards ever since I borrowed a board from a friend, so I immediately bought a board and leash of my own. Since buying it, I've been using it as often as I can to take an extremely unobtrusive approach to having fun in the ocean.

I really enjoy having the opportunity to tell friends about things I love, and I think I could combine my enthusiasm for having fun, my love for photography and my incomparable humor and charm to spread the stoke of Slyde. "

Marco Guzmanof Mexico

"It has been a great experience using this equipment since 2012, and been the first one tasting it, and sharing the stoke in Mexico and Ixtapa, is now my favorite easy carrying tool, and is always with me in my car or Bike, while heading to the beach.

Even though the people see me with certain surprise, asking themselves what I have on my hand while riding the waves, is always nice to hear from local people and tourist of all ages and places, The comment: 'what is that and how is called, hahahaha!!!.'
So I hope as either Ambassador, Representative, or friend, we can keep a close friendship Slyding for long years to come."
