Out of all the boards we've tested, the Glide series is the ultimate progressive surf shape, with the brilliant blend of extra volume and extra width to make these boards smirking stable, in shorter lengths that turn on a dime! The wood sandwich construction is a stellar value to get you into a premium shape board, otherwise, if you can pony-up to the Pro construction, now you are top of the food chain with buttery light weight with bomber durability! Figure the wood sandwich construction will be an estimated 2 to 3 lbs heavier than the Pro construction, depending on the size.
The new Glide is more surfing oriented throughout all its sizes. Keith Teboul’s idea for the Glide Pro was to create something easy, stable and fast to paddle, yet it has a shining spark in its wave maneuverability. The board comes with solid rockers and full outlines, giving it a completely different level of stability and comfort, greatly enhanced by the Integrated Stability Deck, which serves as an ergonomic stance platform, working slightly against the convex deck, offering a 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 a very agile board. To us the Glide is the go to board for your ultimate progressive shape with the most stability. 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.
Offering a durable, tough and light board, but considerably more affordable than our Pro Sup constructions, the Glide uses a cubed fused, closed cell, water proof foam core. An advanced wood sandwich build guarantees for light weight and supreme water resistance.
Regular Glide models feature unidirectional glass rein-forced rails for extra stiffness in surf conditions. High grade epoxy resin creates an impact resistant outer skin while increasing overall hull strength.
