Resolved Issues

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:

Unbelievable Discovery!

I absolutely LOVE my new Wedge Handboard! Even though I've surfed my whole life, and bodysurfed throughout my youth, I had no idea the two sports could be combined into one! I now live and surf in Washington State, and there are plenty of days when the conditions are only doable for bodysurfing, which is difficult in the wetsuits we have to wear up here. The new Wedge Handboard changed all that and has brought new life to my surfing! I had no idea I could "bodysurf" down the line for 75 yards, but that's exactly what happened my first session out. I was so blown away at the speed, control and sensation of surfing on my hand! (We used small, homemade plexiglass hand planes when bodysurfing back in the 80s but they were NOTHING like this.) I am as stoked as any grom, even as I am now past 50. To have this new handboarding option to supplement surfing and SUP surfing up is nothing short of revolutionary for me, as there are so many more days when I can get in the water.
And the quality! None of my other boards (longboards and SUP boards) even come close to the quality and construction of the handboard. The team at SLYDE did not exaggerate; this board is epic. I got the arm leash (highly recommend) and will soon add a board bag, as I really want to protect the board, even as it's super durable.
Please do yourself a favor and get one of these! If you get any joy from bodysurfing, this will launch your enjoyment to the next level.

Gift Set - Wedge Handboard

SECRET STASH - Grom Soft Top

Not sold on it

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.

Hand slyde

The leash works amazing i won't go out without my leash on....
