At the end of the day, everyone just wants to spend more time in the water...any memorable bodysurfing sessions lately?
We have a distributor in Tahiti
and a partnership with the Tahiti Waterman Tour.
The Waterman Tour has 4 different handboarding
events throughout the year that Slyde sponsors. We were lucky enough to be invited to compete in the May leg of the tour.
We spent 5 days on Tahiti scoring perfect reef breaks
, my favorite type of wave, it doesn't get much better than that. I've surfed
some cool places around the world and Tahiti is up there with the best of them. The competition was huge with 69 contestants including the legend himself Mark Cunningham
, who I competed against, unsuccessfully I might add.
We also just sent two of our riders Augie Cunningham and Dylan Biggerstaff over to compete in the the third leg of the handboard competition in Tahiti. So we are looking forward to seeing how they enjoyed the experience.
Our goal is to partner with the Tahiti Waterman Tour and to run the California competition where the winners will get tickets to the participate in the Tahiti Leg. We will be sending another 2 lucky riders over in August.
Stay tuned to our blog, we'll be flipping the tables and interviewing The Surfboard Man himself.
