Slyde Handboards for Beginner Surfers
Looking to Try Handboarding? Here's advice some from Slyde Team Riders to beginners.

We asked a few pros what they loved about handboarding, especially when using the grom board.   If you're ready to experience more fun & catch some waves,  keep reading.

Learning to Love The Ocean

Learning to enjoy the ocean safely takes some practice to understand. How the water moves and the way waves work. But once you get the hang of realaxing in the ocean it brings lifetime of enjoyment. It is truly a treasure to be able to understand and experience and we hope by starting to handboard and bodysurfyou are able to get there even quicker.

3 reasons Handboarding becomes a Ritual, Passion and Obsession for most. 
  • Chris Schmidt of South Africa: 1. Less Equipment to carry around in and out of the water 2. Getting Shacked Easily 3. Even on a small days when everyone's complaining about the no surf you're SCORING.
  • Grant Jaques of Australia: You can Surf pretty much ANY Wave regardless of size, and learn just relax, while getting tumbled by some tasty waves.
  • Willy Cole of Florida: 1. It comes naturally to most, which makes the Learning Curve for wave riding easy.  2. Have fun on any size wave. 3. Easiest way to get a barrel.
  • Mike Baker of New Zealand: You catch more waves so you have more fun, even when the conditions are small and mediocre! When you progress, you get way more barrel time! :) It's also more fun swimming around the line-up without a board to bother with and when you duck-dive, you actually gain ground rather than getting swept backwards if you mistime it with a board :)
