Not for hot beach, dents easy, Delamination

Got it for sons birthday... Had beach party. The board got big bubbles. The bottom delaminated from main foam body. It's like what happens to super cheap body boards. I was expecting way more. Lucky to I had woodem handboards that he could use. I will not buy from slyde again. Maybe other styles are better but the grom was a bad buy, even at a sale price.

Great starter board

I love my wedge, but I like it out in deeper water. The Grom is a great starter board and works nicely in the shore break. I love it. The kids love it. Mom loves it!

Garanteed to make life in the water fun!

I have surfed for over 50 years. I was looking for a way to “spice up” my water and add something new to my relationship with waves. Slyde added a new FUN way to enjoy small surf. I highly recommend their products to all wave lovers. Stay wet my friends! PS as a water photographer , Slyde products have given me a new angle to shoot from the water!

Love the Grom!

Bodysurfing without this is just rolling around in the waves!
Although it did take me a few sets to get the feel for it, the Grom change bodysurfing for me forever!
I will never go out without it again.
Even at an entry level board, the increase in rise length, control, speed, and ability to drop in on a wave make this a must!
Almost every time I go out I lend the board to someone to try, and it never disappoints!
