As a cutting edge brand, Slyde believes in staying ahead of the trends, with product evolution and expansion always at the forefront.
This year at Surf Expo in Orlando 2017, Slyde unveiled their latest handboard, set to put epic wave riding in the palm of your hand.
The Grom was designed specifically for beginners in mind, a handboard for potential board riders, who love what we do in the ocean and think the stoke of riding waves is beyond them. From the materials to the shape, for the last 2 years we re-thought everything we know about handboards and piled our knowledge into making a board that is not only awesome to look at, but performs really well for a beginner.
After I took it out in big surf to test durability, I realized it more than held its own in some pretty gnarly shorebreak and even out at back line.
The Grom is manufactured with the very best materials like no other foam handboard before. We spared nothing in our quest to create the most unbelievable riding experience. We use the very best and newest manufacturing capabilities from an EPS foam core, to the exceptionally durable and scratch resistant textures EBS outer skin.
The Grom by name is a great beginners board, but if you are a seasoned pro you will love the hold and lift this board will give you.
Thanks to our team of ambassadors and riders, who were integral in the development of the Grom. For all their hours spent discussing and testing the new shape we are stoked you are a part of the team.
