Needs instruction on how to use it exactly
I’m still hoping to receive the product that I payed for for on 11/25. Why is shipping taking so long?
Highly recommend .. Protect your investment with these perfect board bags. Nothing worse than dropping your board in the parking lot !
Top notch materials and padding .. exactly like a surfboard bag just smaller .. I have 2 and just bought another one for a friends Wedge too ..

We appreciate your kind words and we hope you'll continue to use our products for all your Handboarding needs. Please don't hesitate to reach out if you have any questions.
Hands down the Slyde Handboards are the best I've ever used .. solid built , with excellent control. The form factor is so perfect you can literally ride a 1 foot wave to dry sand with it ..
I'm a repeating customer I own 3 hand boards . I'm not sold on the phish, I've tried it on small and big days and the performance is jus awful. When riding on the wave the water displacement is awful, I was unable to see anything because of the water shooting in my face so wave riding was not enjoyable. If possible I would like to trade it for the bula model. Mahalo 🤙
Order was not received, it was shipped with incomplete address and returned by post office to the sender twice. Very disappointed!
No Ka Oi!
Get out there and Charge.
We took out the Grom the other day and had a blast! Well made and better than other handplane's I've tried. We plan to buy more!
Thank you for your kind words, Kevin! We are thrilled to hear that you had a blast with our Grom Soft Top and that you think it's well made. We appreciate your support and look forward to seeing you again. Please don't hesitate to reach out if you have any questions.
Have only used this a few times but it is a huge improvement over my old hand gun. Well made, great planing. My daughter, who is small is rocking waves as well. Waiting for some bigger waves to really put it through its paces and curious to compare it to the other slyde boards, but very pleased so far. Was a little worried about the price, but I think worth the extra cost. Good solid product, well designed and lots of fun.

Don’t waste time and money evaluating other handboards - go with Slyde.
They’re exceptional in all aspects.
I used Grom for 2 yeras and switched to Wedge. I prefer Wedge as controllability, but Grom accepts low wave and gives float, moreover affordable price.
There was no handboarder except me in last weekend in Shonan beach most busy in Japan and Handboard got huge attention of surfers and families. Why not introduce it in Japan market?
As a long time (east coast) body surfer, I was somewhat skeptical. Like, do I really need this? But once in the water, I was really impressed with how much extra buoyancy you get. Really helps with catching small waves and staying in control on bigger waves. And my son had a blast with it. We got another one for his friend. Definitely recommend.
I've only taken it out once and I'm already in love. My gosh the thing FLIES and cuts through the water. I just need to get the hang of it but I'm already miles ahead of where I was using that cheap $20 handboard on Amazon. Definitely diggin the Wedge
I have a number of hand planes. The Phish is the best. It's the Andreini Vaquero of hand planes...and I say this as someone who has a Vaquero.
My first hand plane from Slyde was the Phish, and it blew my mind! Growing up I was always at the beach, but I never bodysurfed, except for a few occasions when swimming in to retrieve a leash-less surfboard. Not too long ago, I finally tried bodysurfing with some fins and just my hand, I couldn’t believe I could actually translate my surfboarding knowledge over to surfing my body. After a couple years, I found Slyde. As soon as I got in the water with the Phish, I was instantly hooked. The Phish is soooooo fun! It’s soft rails, rocker, and concave tail let’s you blow down the line super fast, and slip and slide however you want. My only complaint about the Phish, is the spray back you get, because of the bull nosed design. The spray back is especially annoying if you’re trying to film with a forward-facing GoPro. Regardless, after a year with the Phish that’s my only complaint, such a fun board! Next we bought a Bula, and that thing is incredible! It grips the face like a NASCAR tire, and is really great in hollow fast waves… especially when it’s too big for the Phish. Finally I bought the Wedge, in hopes that the hard edges would grip more like the Bula, with the full-length concave mitigating the splash back. It was a success! The Wedge flys! I love how I can use the hard edges to climb up and down the wave as needed to position myself, like with a surfboard. Something that was not as expected, was the maneuverability, being a bigger board. The concave/winged tail lets the water friction break free right behind your palm, where you need it. Because the water is channeled from nose tip to tail, what water was spraying in face before is all but gone. My only complaints are because of it’s increased width, I find myself having to use my second hand almost like you would your elbow on a body board, in order to provide enough pressure to dig the rail into the face at high speeds, and/or with steeper faces. Your wrist just isn’t strong enough, or at least mine isn’t. It’s amazing how much pressure it puts on your shoulder, compared to the Phish, or the Bula. To be fair, the Wedge is new for me, so perhaps I will simply build up more muscle and strengthen the tendons, and I will feel less fatigue on my shoulder? I do remember a bit of a adjustment to the shoulder strain with the Bula and the Phish as well. Along the same lines, because of its surface area and added buoyancy, I do feel the added torque on bigger days, when the wave closes out on me. Regardless, the wedge feels like a powerful Lamborghini and can power through sections and keeps me on the shoulder. The Phish might be more like a Ferrari, fast and smaller, but with the ability to “drift”. The Bula is like an Indy car, and grips the wave, tracking like you’re on a rollercoaster. My only regret, not having these when I was little. Had I known how much fun this type of body surfing could be, I seriously would’ve preferred it over surfboarding anyday. As an added bonus, if you know what you’re doing, you can really spread the stoke through the line up, as they watch you drop in on huge sets, surrounded by chandeliers, with a permanent smile on your face!
I am a bodysurf beginner and I am still scared about the outside and deep ocean. This board makes me feel much more comfortable and I had much more fun on the waves. Love it!
Unfortunately, the bicep leash was not designed for a woman. I'm not too small (my wetsuits are size 6), but the leash is quite giant for my biceps, it escapes easily in the water, not useful, wast of money...
Love this hand board, super fun & packable!
super comfortable. nice and soft where ya need, firm edges for that power stroke.
quick service, stellar product. crushing the coast of california one beach at a time!
