After seeing Slyde Handboards on Shark Tank, Solspotimmediately contacted owners, Steve and Angela Watts for an interview.

The interview covers Slyde Handboards beginning, their experience on Shark
Tank, what it’s like working with Mark Cuban and Ashton Kutcher, and their future business plans, which have been on the hush hush until now.

Solspot asked a series of questions, including:

“What’s the coolest part of your job? Worst part?”

“The coolest part of our job is the ability to work together as a couple, building a life a business together is always exciting. That being said, a small business has its challenges, you’re doing everything yourself, always working, every hour of the day because it’s your business.”

“What’s next for Slyde?” Solspot asks.

    “On the business side, our future goals include a new kid friendly handboard [and] the re-release of our popular Phish Handboard. And on a personal side, we’re excited to announce that we have a baby grom girl due in November.”
