Slyde Handboards launched their team rider search for Groms in July, and the entries have been nothing short of amazing!

The contest was open to anyone 16 and under across the globe, who's stoked on bodysurfing & handboarding, and wants to join our handboarding team for 2019 & 2020 season.  

Contestants were encouraged to make a fun 1-2 minute video that showcases their winning personality, sweet bodysurfing/handboarding moves, and to tell us why they want to ride for Slyde.

After months of reviewing, debating, and lots of smiling the Slyde HQ team has picked our TOP 7 picks and now it's up to YOU the community to pick your 2 favorite groms!  Please head to our Instagram and put in your vote by 10/10/19!  And make one of these Groms extra extra amped!
