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


Nick Eagan, Tustin, CA

"I want to be a Slyde Ambassador because I love the ocean more than ANYTHING! I love taking pictures and surfing so being an ambassador would suit me perfectly!" 

Torsten Bodenhamer, Costa Mesa, CA

"I would love to be a part of something that has brought me so much joy over the past year and a half. I may not be the best of the best, but I love hitting the beach as much as I can with my wedge or grom board (hoping to grow the arsenal soon)

Before I knew about Slyde I was using Taco Bell trays and flipflops to bodysurf, like you said on Sharktank, until my friend let me borrow his wedge board. I then went to Kauai, and brought it along. It was amazing, all the locals wanted to try it because they surprisingly had never seen anything like it. I later found out my good friend and teammate Augie Cunningham was one of your riders. In conclusion I want to be a Slyde Ambassador because I want to grow as a bodysurfer and there is no better way to do that than to join the community that I've come to love so much."

Joseph VanAken, Sherman Oaks, CA

"I love bodysurfing, and your handplanes are the best I've ever seen it would be a dream come true to be on your team."

Heather Lundstrom, Virginia Beach, VA

"Because I love the ocean, slyding, and being outdoors."

Jon Jon Giang  Santa Clara, CA

"I want to be a Slyde Ambassador to spread the sport of bodysurfing and to represent a brand and product of which I truly believe is the best in the business. Being part of the team at Mavericks Surf Company in Half Moon Bay, CA, I’m in a unique situation where I have the ability to promote Slyde to a wide array of surfers from the beginners to the expert big wave surfers and water people. I’d also like to start competing at bodysurf contests starting this year."

Hand slyde

The leash works amazing i won't go out without my leash on....

Bula hand board

This handboard is exactly what I was looking for. The size and craftsmanship is fantastic! I have gotten some great rides with this board. Super fun.

Ready for the Senior Tour

I received my Slyde Phish just before 2 weeks of gloomy weather. Now that I’ve had a chance to road test it, I can’t wait to get back in the water.

Growing up in Long Island NY, body surfing was my first wave gliding experience. Typically we would drive straight to shore so surfing the diagonal has been a learning curve.

I look forward to many great sets this summer.

So much fun!

These little boards are amazing! We bought a couple to bring with us to Hawaii and had a blast.. super easy to travel with, just fit right in my backpack. Made riding the waves so much fun and worked just as good as a full sized boogie board one of my friends had. Highly recommended. Can’t wait to try it out again!

Love my Bula!

I recently been spending a lot of time on the North Shore of Oahu, and there’s nothing better than the Bula for bigger more intense surf. Too much fun brah! Mahalo nui loa!
