• Dedicated light-wind session saver
• Freestyle-friendly, surprisingly agile
• Gets you riding while others watch and wait
• Lively wood-core construction
• Long, slender shape performs like a standard twin-tip
The Glide is our dedicated light-wind board designed to get you out and riding, and having a blast doing it, while others sit on the beach waiting for the wind to come up. Staying true to the expression “Throw it don’t mow it,” the Glide’s long, slender outline, block rail profile and mild rocker combine for a feel closer to a standard twin-tip than the barn door that many wider light wind boards resemble. Offered in 149cm and 159cm lengths, the Glide’s extra surface area will, as the name suggests, get you up and gliding across the water with significantly less wind than a standard twin tip.
You’ll love the Glide if you frequent light-wind locations where you need a large-format board to get you out and riding and want to maintain the fun of a twin tip rather than switching to a surfboard.
Package includes: Board, standard 2” (5.08cm) kite fins and grab handle
The Glide features a .2mm Dura-Light base. This hardened base material is about half the weight of our traditional base layup. For reference, other 2017 Slingshot base thicknesses are as follows: Refraction (Sam Light pro)- .7mm Dura-Glide base; Vision- .2mm Dura-light base; Misfit- .2mm Dura-lite base; Karolina Pro- .2mm Dura-lite base.
Like all of Slingshot’s twin tips, the Glide is hand-built in the USA, with high-quality materials sourced from the Pacific Northwest. Construction includes a vertically laminated wood core that provides smooth clean flex and the best performance and durability of any core material on the market. New for 2017, Slingshot is employing a carbon-reinforced Bedrock Insert mounting system, which reduces board weight while improving hold strength and overall flex characteristics. Vibrant urethane rails enhance style and durability.
