Slyde Handboards


We bring you up close and personal to the wedge series “woody” handboard/handplane. The first reaction from most people to the woody is how sick it looks. The next is to how light it is. The woody is made with either White Oak, birch, or maple and the darker version is a walnut or cherry wood Veneer.

Our CSC technology sandwiches the foam core in a 3mm layer of PVC foam. This sandwich technology increases strength by 30% and decreases weight by nearly 30%. Our vacuum seal process creates a full and completely seamless cover over the whole-board which eliminates weak spots found in many other sandwich surf boards.

The Wedge Grommet like the Pro model is designed by our crew of shapers and has the same custom swallow tailed shape as its senior cousin the Wedge Pro. However the Grommet was designed with minor changes to accommodate less experienced riders. Not everyone wants to ride 10 foot dumping shore break! The major difference Is the volume, rails and size. Slightly longer by an 1.5′ and with rounder rails the Grommet allows for more leniency in your turns and due to the increased volume far more buoyancy on smaller waves. Also the Grommet does not come with Slyde Syndikit art work.

Wedge Pro Series

The Wedge Pro Series is the culmination of a whole lot of riding Handboards the set consists five designs The Fat Cat, Hell wave, Flame Head, Blu-Ray and the Envy this series of designs was crafted by the magnificent Paul Mascatelli of our famed Art Syndikit.

The name “the wedge” comes from three angles. Most think its named after the Newport beach wedge but it’s actually a secret spot on the east coast of South Africa, A spot we rode a few years back. Wedge also seems to be the Nick name given to wave with a tendency for freakish behavior and great for bodysurfing with sick drops and most likely annihilation at the end of the ride. This name was Probably brought on by the Newport beach Wedge. Thirdly the board reminded us of a wedge of cake so tasty looking you could eat it. don’t ask we are a strange bunch!

Enjoy Handplanes

Enjoy Handplanes were created by Ed Lewis and Kipp Denslow as a way to save broken surfboards, old wetsuits and production waste from going to the landfills.

Their mission is to keep broken boards and manufacturing waste from the landfills while creating products that are fun to use and environmentally responsible.

All Enjoy Handplanes are made with either old foam from broken boards or ruined blanks from manufacturing for the board and neoprene from used wetsuits to make the handles. They use materials that do not currently have a means of recycling and would end up in the landfill.

Each handplane is shaped and custom glassed with Entropy Bio Epoxy, providing a second chance to a once loved board or wrecked blank doomed to the land fill. So get out there, start bodysurfing and Enjoy yourself!

Grab one and go. The Surf-Grip is made of a lightweight and bendable EPE (expanded poly-ethylene) paddle with a handle for buoyancy and planing. It floats and wants to stay on the surface.

A mini water ski or wake-board for your hand. Easy grip handle with no leashes or finger holds to slow you down. It’s 3D shape creates a “wave wall” which can provide some additional speed and momentum from the ‘fire hose” effect.

The Surf-Grip surface is soft so it is safer in crowded breaks. Probably the lowest price hand plane available.
