Patrick McCormic, San Clemente, CA"As an avid waterman, former lifeguard, and high school surf coach, I love how Slyde is all about fun. That's what I remind my students during our morning surf practices down at 204. Just have fun and enjoy the ocean. Having been born and raised in San Clemente myself, I would have loved to have had a Slyde Handboard any given Saturday down at the south side of the pier. Even today, my Dad and I can now beat the ever elusive blackball flag with a Slyde wedge handboard!

"I would like to be a Slyde Handboards ambassador because I enjoy riding my board (the grom); I would also like to to teach others how amazing and fun the sport of body surfing is. I really would like to be an ambassador because bodysurfing is not very popular among girls my age. As well as, you have no females on your team in there young teens (like me). For those reasons I would really like to be an ambassador as well as be a great addition to your slyde team and family.."

"Love momma ocean and Slyde!!! 🙂."

"I think giving without the expectation of getting anything in return is the the true meaning Aloha. When I bodysurf, I give it all to the ocean, the ocean is my church, my happy place , my serenity. I never planned to win Sandy Beach multiple and consecutive times, settle down and have 3 amazing kids, return to the sport in 2018 and am now the defending champ. I do plan to sit in the lineup with Sean, Keali'i and some other local shredders and get more progressive with bodysurfing. Why not do it with the best Handboard :)"

"Want to continue to push and share the stoke and sport of handboarding."
