Slyde into a visual day dream with 7 bodysurfing/handboarding accounts that will keep you virtually stoked where-ever you are.

This name is on the tip of everyone's tongue, after Keali'i Punley's impressive performance on the Southern California bodysurfing circuit. Keali'i aka the brown dolphin brings the ohhh and ahhs, both in person and on Instagram with that smooth aloha style.

Fernando Amorim of Rio De Janeiro Brazil found a newfound purpose to swimming in the  He hangs out and photographs Rio's diverse bodysurfing crews, documenting unprecedented events and waves.

With a name like Sunny, it's safe to anticipate an Instagram account full of sunshine, sunsets, and bright adventures.  As an established triathlete, sailor, and waterwoman Sunny shares her experiences of pushing boundaries and exploration.

Fresh from shooting The Point Panics Experience, Unko lives by the motto "a barrel a day keeps the psychiatrist away." Clearly he's got his mind right, by capturing an array of some of the most epic barrels & bodysurfers you'll ever lay eyes on.


Max Ellertson is an avid Wedge rider and adrenaline junkie who thrives in bigger waves, and gnarly drops. His Instagram is full of eye popping photos worth viewing.


Made in Hawaii and established in Orange County California, Clint Wilton throws shakas everywhere, and certainly takes some amazing photos along the way.

Slyde's own Angela Ferendo-Watts showcases a different side of the handboard business and lifestyle.  Count on a ton of baby pictures, family adventures, and stoke.
