Slyde Handboards EPIC Brand Ambassadors Responses: Oct 2019

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


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!

Watching your company grow over the last five years and seeing how you've capitalized on your Shark Tank involvement while staying connected to the local community is very inspiring. My day job allows me to co-manage a performing arts center's social media channels that engage with over 100,000 Facebook and 15,000 Instagram followers. I'd love to get more involved with your brand, learn more about your digital strategy and have a few Slyde sessions along the way!

Cate Andersson, Carlsbad California

"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.."

Shep Leonard, Carolina Shores, NC

"Love momma ocean and Slyde!!! 🙂."

DeLori Gomes,  Wahiawa HI

"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 :)

Matthew Abdo, Anaheim California

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