Fresh back from Whomp Off Australia, this Gold Coast Bodysurfing Crew came in a respectable 5th place up against some serious local and international teams. A fun community, the Goldie Sliders actively spreads the bodysurfing stoke, regularly hosting meet ups on Saturdays at Narrowneck Reef or Froggy’s Beach.
A 20-year lifeguard from North County San Diego, Ryan does water safety for the WSL and other big wave strike missions. Psst he was also recently seen handboarding at Kelly Slater's wavepool, Surf Ranch.
Spreading the stoke in Ventura California, 13 year old Evan is a part of the Surf team, and thrives on whomping shorebreakers. With his photographer mate Finn Matheson, these two capture some classic California adventures.
