Slyde Handboards has some of the most committed brand ambassadors on the planet.

On Sept 22nd 2015 Carlos Hebert of Montreal Canada started a self imposed 365 waterman challenge, a journey in which he pledged to waveride everyday for the next 365 days.

The pledge in dedication to his father Marcel, who passed away from skin cancer. 
Growing up, Marcel and Carlos spent countless days ocean swimming and bodyboarding at Sunset Cliffs in San Diego, CA. 

A location much more inviting for the 365 challenge, than Carlos's current location in Canada.  Where the majority of Carlos's 365 days were spent handboarding in an icy Canadian river. 

The team at Slyde Handboards would like to honor both Carlos's epic completion of the challenge and his father, by auctioning of an autographed Mark Cunninghamracketeerr wedge board along with a Raw Elements USA natural sunscreen package.

The 48 hour auction held exclusively on Instagram. All proceeds will be donated to the "Save Your Skin Foundation" of Canada in Marcel's honor.

We've been in awe of his commitment since day #1 when he explained "how he just handboarded in -7F riverwater full of ice chunks."  Of course as sun lovers ourself, Slyde recognizes the importance of using sunscreen,  and hope the auction will offer education & prevention to others.  

Bid on the auction and celebrate Carlos's completiton of the 365 Day Waterman Challenge & his father HERE

The leash works amazing i won't go out without my leash on....

Bula hand board

This handboard is exactly what I was looking for. The size and craftsmanship is fantastic! I have gotten some great rides with this board. Super fun.

Ready for the Senior Tour

I received my Slyde Phish just before 2 weeks of gloomy weather. Now that I’ve had a chance to road test it, I can’t wait to get back in the water.

Growing up in Long Island NY, body surfing was my first wave gliding experience. Typically we would drive straight to shore so surfing the diagonal has been a learning curve.

I look forward to many great sets this summer.

So much fun!

These little boards are amazing! We bought a couple to bring with us to Hawaii and had a blast.. super easy to travel with, just fit right in my backpack. Made riding the waves so much fun and worked just as good as a full sized boogie board one of my friends had. Highly recommended. Can’t wait to try it out again!

Love my Bula!

I recently been spending a lot of time on the North Shore of Oahu, and there’s nothing better than the Bula for bigger more intense surf. Too much fun brah! Mahalo nui loa!
