The Water Boy Talks Being About Being A Slyder in the UK
Slyde Pro-Ambassador Ben Schofield stumbled across our handboards a few years ago on Youtube, and has been a massive supporter in the UK ever since.

His latest blog "Being A Slyder" takes us behind the handboarding scene and the passion that keeps him Slyd-ing across the pond.

"For me, Its about head down and kick hard, perhaps dolphin diving under water to then surface onto the wave face. Feeling the momentum take over, your weight goes forward and you start planing on your hand board.

As you take that drop down the face of the of wave and take that fixed stare down the line of the wave you feel yourself in the pocket of the wave waiting, praying for that lip to throw over your head getting you barreled and coming out with the biggest stoke face. The other surfers in the line up glare at you wondering why your smiling, laughing and having so much fun. It's because your not hassling for waves and dropping in on other surfers."

Update: Since the release of this article Ben now has an adorable  baby girl named Ruby Rose & his Slyde wish come true... a t-shirt & hat to rock & represent us, while he's out and about!
