We ask all Slyde brand ambassador applicants the question
"Why do you want to be a Slyde Ambassador" and below are 4 thoughtful responses that earned these ambassadors acceptance letters.
"Because more people in Brooklyn need to body surf with me!"
Ryan Cornelius Santa Ana, CA
"Me and my family have been generational surfers and handplaners for 3 generations. My uncle used to make makeshift handplanes out of skateboard decks. Since then we have turned into the Slyde family with 8 handplanes from you guys. Have taken them from Seal Beach and San Clemente all the way to Kapalua and back. Would love to be an ambassador and plan to be a lifelong slyde member!!"
Ray Meyer Garden City, NY
"I’m most relaxed when in the water. I was a NCAA swimmer and an ocean lifeguard for 7 yrs on the beaches of Long Island. I’m now a professional working in media distribution and spending as much time as possible at the beach with my family. Bodysurfing is so accessible. The grom is a great low cost entry level piece of equipment. I want to see local surf shops selling and renting Slyde Handboards and fins. I want to see kids at my beach club and public beaches using these to learn how to enjoy bodysurfing."

"We slide, enter contests, and enjoy ocean stoke all over the world. You have some great products and seem to be great folks. What's not to embrace?!"
