The new Glide is more surfing oriented throughout all its sizes. Keith Teboul: “My idea for the Glide was to create something easy, stable and fast to paddle, yet it was supposed to have a shining spark in its maneu- verability on waves.
This board comes with solid rockers and full outlines, giving it a completely different level of stability and comfort, greatly enhanced by ISDTM (Integrated Stability Deck), which serves as an ergonomic stance platform. ISDTM works slightly against the convex deck dome, offering a more solid stance. The nose rocker has a lower entry for ease of paddling and a very constant glide, hence the name. The bottom transitions from single to double to vee for an agile and maneuverable board.
To me the Glide is the go to board for cruising and small waves. This is the Sup that my girlfriend and me grab and go to the south side, throw our dog onboard and ride the fun waves.”
The deck consists of a generous diamond grove Quatro pad covering both your paddling and surfing stance for added comfort, while leaving the nose and rails bare to save weight for improved performance. All boards come with a raised tail kick for added grip when riding waves.
We consciously do not use a carbon deck on the Glide because it would result in too stiff a board for Sup surfing and inhibit much desired flex and pop. The Glide features a standard M8 plug for mast bases.
