Redefining the way a dedicated light wind board should feel and perform, the Glide has consistently gotten people out on the water having fun when lesser boards would fall short. Developed not only for getting up and riding in light winds, the Glide performs more like a standard twin tip than a barn door once you’re out on the water. Its design features a long, narrow line, block rail profile and mild rocker.
These features combine to give the rider significantly better edge control, power management, load and pop and maneuverability than standard light-wind boards that are generally shorter and wider. In fleeting wind, mellow thermals or calm azure lagoons, the 2016 Glide can make the difference between frolicking in the wind or watching it from shore.
Like all of Slingshot’s twin tip boards, the Glide is built proudly in the United States with high-quality materials sourced from the Pacific Northwest. Construction includes an all-wood Atomic Core that provides the best flex, performance and durability out of any core material on the market. Slingshot’s exclusive Fastrack mounting system is integrated into the core of the board and gives riders ultimate control when mounting footstraps or boots.
