Gift Set - Wedge Handboard
SECRET STASH - Grom Soft Top
I had really high hopes. I have been able to use the Bula on a couple good days. I'm liking my old board better so far. But will try it a couple more times before I return it just to be sure. I have none of the below issues with my Enjoy planer, and thinking of going back.
1. The dam thing is not secure on my hand. No mater how tight I make it. It litterally pops off my hand while on a wave. Its getting really anoying having to constantly pay attention to it.
2. I switch my hand depending on the wave direction. It's tough for me to get a grip on the nose, pull it off then pull tightly on other hand in time. I've missed a couple good ones because of this.
3. The pad that goes accross the top of my hand doesnt cover my whole hand and the seam starts to rub on my hand and is uncomfortable.
4. Not a huge deal but wasnt happy that there were some small cosmetc defects on the board. Eslescially for the price
5. The board bag is kind of ridiculous. Its huge and picture on website isnt to scale, but I probably just wont use it. It was basically free.
I think the only thing I can say positive is I think it has good control... after getting used to the angle I need, and may be a bit more bouyant to pull me out of water for speed. But i need to try it a few times more and figure out how to keep the dam thing on!
I am giving these to my grandsons at the end of the month. I am sure they will love them.
The leash works amazing i won't go out without my leash on....
This handboard is exactly what I was looking for. The size and craftsmanship is fantastic! I have gotten some great rides with this board. Super fun.
I received my Slyde Phish just before 2 weeks of gloomy weather. Now that I’ve had a chance to road test it, I can’t wait to get back in the water.
Growing up in Long Island NY, body surfing was my first wave gliding experience. Typically we would drive straight to shore so surfing the diagonal has been a learning curve.
I look forward to many great sets this summer.

These little boards are amazing! We bought a couple to bring with us to Hawaii and had a blast.. super easy to travel with, just fit right in my backpack. Made riding the waves so much fun and worked just as good as a full sized boogie board one of my friends had. Highly recommended. Can’t wait to try it out again!
I recently been spending a lot of time on the North Shore of Oahu, and there’s nothing better than the Bula for bigger more intense surf. Too much fun brah! Mahalo nui loa!
Outstanding quality, looks and performance. A real quality ‘board” that was underpromised and over preforms… I appreciate everything that went into making this excellent product! Stay wet my friends!
This is the best hand slide on the market it's so fast and crushes all shorebreak...
Best toy I've ever purchaed!!!
I first purchased the grom and had a blast on it riding anything from shore breaks to reef breaks here in Hawaii. Then I purchased the bula and it changed the game for me. I’m hooked! The bula allows me to swim as if I didn’t have a hand board but still generates speed in all conditions. Love it some dumpy shore breaks though. Would recommend to all and have even got my friends to try it and it’s a game changer!!!
They loved it
Awesome hand plane. I’ve been surfing for years but wanted to try body surfing on smaller day. I am blown away by the type of rides you can get with a pair of fins and this plane! Highly recommend
Epic hand plane, carves great and super responsive - although the "board bag" is huge, and would not have ordered if I knew, picture is a little miss leading.
Awesome wave tool for small to medium waves!
I’m a 46 yr old Skater, Snowboarder, Surfer from NJ. Bought 4 Groms and leashes for my two kids and my two nieces for Christmas. Haven’t had a chance to use em yet cuz it’s freezing here, but with 40 years experience I know quality gear when I see it. Great service too. We’ll see you all out there in the spring!
Good length,nice fit,light weight, quality! Protect your investment...
We won't be able to use the 2 boards purchased as Christmas gifts but they looked like so much fun on Shark Tank that I had to buy a couple for the Jersey Shore this summer. Looking forward to some real run!
I was able to purchase two Slyde Hands for myself and one of my instructors who are two old salty lifeguards. The Slyde Hands have allowed us shred like we have never shred before. We are totally stoked to be able to hit the surf with our new toy!!
Solid construction,light,cool artwork,feels good in your hand, recommend it!
The Grom is a great handboard for those looking to give bodysurfing a go, or for those looking to save money while still receiving a quality product. I've used the Grom on everything from 1' ankle biters to 5' bombs, and it delivers every time. Highly highly recommended
I pre-ordered a black/yellow Envy but received a black/lime-green version. Also, the plastic buckle on the strap was split. Slyde admitted the advertisement was a mistake & offered to exchange the handboard for another desired one. I settled for it to avoid further issues. So Slyde quickly sent a replacement strap. I have to say the handboard itself is built very tough just as a real surfboard. No cheap foam; will definitely last. Can't wait to amp my bodysurfing with this next summer!
Btw, if you're not feelin the plastic buckle, I bought this to replace it the day it gives out:
