MANY THANKS TO ALL OUR FOLLOWERS AND FANS!

As the year draws to a close, Steve and I want to send a huge thank you to all our customers and supporters. We want to thank you for taking the time to send us photos and videos of you Slyd-in, giving us amazing online reviews, recommending us to your friends and family, and of course explaining to fellow beach-goers what the heck is on your hand, then even letting them borrow your Slyde to try it out.
