When designing the Glide, Slingshot set out to create the easiest twin tip in the world to ride. That meant more size and a larger foundation for riders to learn on. Now in its 11th iteration, The Glide's reputation stands strong as one of the best beginner and light wind twin tips on the market. Last year Slingshot introduced the Trapezoidal tip and tail, which increased the effective edge of the board in the water without increasing the overall size and cumbersome nature of a longer board. This also increased the upwind ability of the board for beginners and light wind warriors alike.

WHY YOU'LL LOVE THE GLIDE

  • The Glide will be the first and last twin tip to get upwind on a light wind day.
  • One of the most proven light wind twin tip shapes of all time
  • Easy to hold power in case the wind picks up, making it one of the most versatile "big boards" on the market.

GLIDE FEATURES

  1. Trapezoidal Tip & Tail: Slingshot introduced the Trapezoidal tip and tail shape last year. It extends your effective board area in the water and also acts a rudder or an additional center fin. The extended length gives you more range and this shape also provides more tracking for upwind performance.
  2. Atomic Wood Core: Sustainably grown Paulownia gives the lively, springy character that Slingshot boards are famous for. Vertically laminated construction harnesses the collective strength of the wood's grain and provides strength, durability and consistent flex over the life of the board.
  3. Carbon Bedrock Inserts: Light, flexible and durable inserts that maintain the board's flex underfoot for a consistent feel from tip to tail.
  4. Single Concave Hull: Provides smooth tracking and effortless upwind performance.
  5. Singleshot Fusion Sidewall: Slingshot has transferred the same technology found in high durometer urethane skateboard wheels into the rail of all their boards. Their innovative manufacturing process literally infuses the rail into the board cores in one single shot, producing unrivaled dampening and durability.
  6. Dura-Light Base: This .2mm base material is the ideal strength to weight ratio. Lightweight performance in a strong and durable package.

All of Slingshot's twin tips are made with Sustainably Sourced Wood. Their wood providers are Forest Stewardship Council approved ensuring that products come from responsibly managed forests that provide environmental, social and economic benefits.
