The RDS Team is comprised of a diverse group of talented athletes from around the world whom share the fire and passion of Skimboarding much like I do.

Passion is defined as: An intense desire or enthusiasm for something. In our case this something is Skimboarding.

The players on this Team all exert passion for Skimboarding, Family, Life, Friendship, Respect for others, and Fun !!


We at Run Drop Slide, Inc couldn't be more happier and thankful to all of these athlete for their support of us.


These guys/girls/groms are the shit !! They shred, they teach skimboarding, they love life, they respect earth,   they love their family and friends, they travel, they win contests, they party, they have a balance in life, they constantly give back.....They are the RDS TEAM !!


I have no idea what it means to be on the RDS TEAM, so don't ask me....  If you need that question answered, just  look how long some of these athletes   have been with us,  you'll know who to ask.  All I care about is Skimboarders   enjoying life, having   fun with a  balance  and  of coarse....Run Drop Slide
