The full feature entitled "#RadGear: Foam Handboards are Now A Thing" is available HERE

Stellar highlights include:

  • How Slyde's introduction to foam handplanes, just like full-size foamboards have become the affordable and popular entryway into surfing.
  • Why Slyde's mission “to globally grow the hand boarding and bodysurfing community,” 
  • How The Grom is beginner board at first look and a powerhouse at heart.
  • Why Tahitian’s are drooling over it, Hawaiians are shredding on it.
  • How The board is made entirely different from its counterparts within the Slyde Hand Board market.
Cheers to an epic summer of new connections, water adventures, and spreading the Grom stoke.
