Each day Slyde searches high & low for awesome brand ambassador that choose to represent the brand to the fullest. 


Yoshi Tanaka, Oahu Hawaii

"I would like to be an Slydehandboard Ambassador because not only I love the products, but Slydehandboard helps me to develop my skills on my bodysurfing, plus Slydehandboard makes some connections between the ancient days Hawaiian bodysurfing or the roots of surfing. Therefore, I would love to help the Slydehandboard community and share the world of what and how bodysurfing can bring some joy."

Sage Luff, Ventura California

"The reason I want to be an ambassador for Slyde, is because I truly love the ocean and all the things that come with being a waterman. I’m a lifeguard here in Ventura and kinda a bodysurfing nut most of the time swimming out with just fins and a plane, while the boys are messing around with getting the right board wasting time and missing the waves. They used to look at me funny, but slowly I’m getting them to come to there sense. I’m a strong supporter of people that like the same thing as me and I want to share it with as many people as I can. If I could help you guys out and help the sport that I love grow it would be truly amazing."

Siska Dauwe, Belgium

"I am a girl who loves everything in the water. Your product looks so fun! I want to have some fun, want to promote it. I will take it step by step but love to promote this in Belgium - Europe. (Sport) Event planning is also a big dream of mine, I see that happening with Slydehandboard! There are a lot of kids/adult surf camps in Belgium, I used to be the first kid to book those camps. It seems so much fun, interesting and rewarding to promote your products on the Belgian market, at surf camps, in local surf clubs, local surf shops, even on the online market later on. I am so excited (read: way to excited), I need to do my research about the company because I sent you on Facebook the minute I saw you on Shark Tanks.

It is the product that I was missing my whole childhood, as a big fan of the sea and water. As a sports management/human kinetics student, I see that this can be an amazing hype in Belgium and can become a commonly practiced sport. I love that it is also easy to take with you on trips, which is trendy in Europe. Currently, I am on an exchange in Canada. In December I am returning to Belgium. From January till May, I have two internships and my thesis.

I want to use my free time to get to know your product and company, promote your brand local and get myself ready to maybe expand the promotion this summer on some surf camps. Again, I am very excited, I wrote this text on the spot, I hope that is what you guys expect and aming at. If you need me to apply in a more official manner, let me know! Very nice to get in touch with you."

Xander Hodge, Virginia Beach, VA

"I want to be a Slyde Ambassador because of my love of the sport. I have always had a love for the ocean and bodysurfing. When I found out about Slyde Handboards, I got so stoked. It put a whole other twist to bodysurfing. Now I've been handboarding for almost two years and I want to get more involved with the sport and Slyde Handboards."

Zach Tyson Provo, UT

"I love this board and this brand! I have know about it since Shark Tank and have been a huge fan! All my friends and family love it now and ask me questions about it! I know I could help influence tons of people and get them stoked about Slyde as well!!!."
