A run through on the features

Designed and built for you

The inspiration for the Wedge shape comes from the short boards of the late 80's. With the swallow tail and distinct double hard wings that not only allow for points of water release out the back but also help in preventing spray back. The break in outline from the wings allows for extra width without an excessive curve to the tail. The concave running almost the entire length of the board funnels water in under the rocker and out the back, this creates more speed and again less/no spray back. The extra width at the center point where the palm sits means the Wedge is far more forgiving and stable when riding for uninitiated to handboarding. It is primarily a beginner's board but the more experienced will love this as it shreds anything. This board will catch whatever you want to catch.

built to last

We have dedicated years to finding the best possible way to make our boards, there are over 30 individual steps that go into building every slyde handboard. We make them to last, the high tech materials that we use make them as strong as they are beautiful. We took the guess work and error out of the shape by using the most advanced manufacturing process ever, decreasing weight, increasing buoyancy and giving you the longest ride you will ever have on a handboard.

the shape

The Wedge shape is designed and built to shred every-day surf, by every-day I mean average surf; the stuff we ride in between real swells. The Wedge is a 90% solution! However, it is so much fun the other 10% you will probably wish you had it. I have ridden everything from 15 foot Indonesian bombs on reef break to blown out days on a local beach break. It is fair to say the Wedge shape will take on all conditions and is a whole lot of fun!

Way fun

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.

These are definitely THE handboards to own

Don’t waste time and money evaluating other handboards - go with Slyde.

They’re exceptional in all aspects.

Handboard in Japan

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?

LOVE this thing

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

The Wedge is unreal!

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!
