    When plotting out your next surf trip, places like Hawaii or Tahiti most often come to mind. But a new video hopes to lure surfers to a lesser known locale: Montana. The video, titled “Living Rivers” showcases surfing on the standing waves that form in the rivers of Montana, Idaho and Wyoming, when warm summer weather melts snow and ice from the mountains and flood into the local rivers. “The video was shot in two parts,” director of the video, Max Lowe, told GrindTV. “The first part was shot over 10 days in February on the Lochsa River that runs off the Montana…

    Despite dangerous surf warnings, some locals in Hawaii found ways to enjoy the waves. We’re roughly halfway through what has already been an extremely active hurricane season, and Hawaiian residents are now bracing for the heavy rains and dangerous surf brought on by a historic occurrence: three hurricanes brewing in the Pacific Ocean simultaneously. Over the weekend, officials recorded three hurricanes — Ignacio, Kilo and Jimena, all of which were as strong as Category 4 — spinning in the Pacific Ocean near Hawaii at the same time. And while Ignacio was downgraded to a…

Slyde couldn't wait to to find out more about the dude behind all the URT stoke. When & How Did the URT Brand come about? The URT Brand came about from my time as a Beach Lifeguard in Coronado. In the Winter we get a lot of time to ponder. I had just graduated with an accounting degree and I realized I paid a lot of money to know what I didn't want to do. So I guess it was priceless.

  • How A Broken Paddle Changed My life. The Story of a Handboarder's journey

    28 Aug 2015 | 12:10 pm
    It was 1994 and I was a wide-eyed, 22 year old Bodyboarder on a 3 month backpacking trip traveling through India.  An experience that forever changed my life. We had slowly made our way down to the small fishing town of Anjuna (Goa) about 250 miles south of Mumbai and a grueling 11-hour trip. However, it is all worth it when you get there.  Anjuna is a palm-fringed paradise, a melting pot of colors, counter-culture and relaxation. India: A kaleidoscopic explosion of tastes sounds and smells We decided to do some exploring and rented scooters to make our way down to Harambol beach which lies…

    Angela Ferendo, Slyde's Chief Ryde Officer is no stranger to the water.   If you've been to any of our Slyde Summer Tour events, she's typically the first in the water and the last out.  She's a mermaid in the making, but until the Chubascos event in Huntington Beach, has never entered a handboarding or bodysurfing competition.

We had so much unprecedented stoked for The Black Carbon Fiber,  they're literally Slyde-ing off the shelves, with ONLY 10 boards left in stock until Christmas 2016.   The amp for this beauty is overwhelming.  Ronald B says "Rode my Carbon Wedge board at Manhattan Beach and got shacked out of my mind.

  • Minimize unnecessary movement when paddling a prone paddleboard

    mattwright
    1 Sep 2015 | 2:52 pm
    What part of the stroke in prone paddling causes the ‘up down’ motion rather than forward propulsion? I prone on my Bark Commander. I’m the only one here in Colorado (as far as I know) and when my hubby watched my stroke her thought the board moved up and down in the water. So I was wondering which part of the stroke I need to work on to get more forward propulsion. Good for your hubby. She has a good eye. When paddling on your knees on a stock board, you want to minimize your up and down movement. Slogging the board up and down won’t get your all that far under normal…

    This year I am really trying to figure out how to mentally get over the “oh crap, I hurt so much” hump.  You know the feeling, watching your GPS ¾ into a longer race go slower and slower even thought you are not doing anything different when your head starts to tell you how much you hurt – BAM!  Game over.    Who knows, maybe you really did just bonk or did the current just switch and you let your doubts take over. I’m wondering what kind of mental games other paddlers play to just let your training take over and shut down mental doubts. This year I’ve almost stopped using the…

    Got my 12 stock Bark and your video at the end of May. Did my first race this past weekend, covered the 7 mile course on Chequomegon Bay (Lake Superior) in 1:35. Thanks so much!!! Really happy with my progress. PS: Since no one around here prones, I was on my own out there. Is that a respectable speed (4.4/mile)? Couldn’t knee paddle as much as I wanted due to a wicked cross chop. I am 60 years old… Easy one. Here goes: The average on stock boards is high 4 mph to low 5 mph for most paddlers while the top guys are padding mid 5mph to high 5mph during races.  Unlimited boards are…
  • Prone Paddleboard Fin Selection

    mattwright
    5 Aug 2015 | 10:26 am
    Hey guys. I am about to get a 14 foot prone board.  I have a feeling it will probably come with a small futures keel fin, which I would assume would be great in flat water. What would be a good after market fin for open water or downwind? Do I use a fin similar to what I would use on a stand up? Futures downwind fin? Any suggestions? As a general rule the fins on prone boards are less robust than SUP. This should make sense as you are not going that fast and you done need as much surface area to oppose the forces of your arms vs. a sup paddle to keep you going in a straight line and propel…

What do you suggest as a balance between the two each week? I would like to be competitive at both. Or asked another way; how to people combine the two disciplines and make it work for both? Ahhhh –the jack of all trades but master of none question. The good news is that with paddling you might be able to have your cake and eat it too. Now, for the answer without any more cliché’s.
