The new Glide Pro 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 Pro is the go to board for cruising and small waves. This is the Sup that Keith and his wife grab and go to the south side, throw their 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.
The Glide features a plug to attach a windsurfing rig.
The new Quatro Windsurfing boards now come packed in recycled cardboard and paper tape only. No plastic bags. Keeping your planet, our planet, one step cleaner. We figured it’s a worthy trade off, as our love for windsurfing and the planet only grows.

Hi, I purchased the glide pro 8’6” second hand (and excited for it) but it has two unfamiliar holes on the top. One appears to be like a vent hole, but it has a metal stainless steel screw plug (rather than a gortext vent plug), and there is another hole right in front, that has no cover or plug. Is this normal? What are theses holes? Any help would be really appreciated. Need to know if I need to address them before going in the water.
Than you for stoked on our gear!!
The hole with the screw is the vent plug. Please make sure that it is tight when riding or exposed to water, and removed when exposed to temperature or elevation changes (but remember to screw it back on when exposed to water). Do not over-tight this screw as the rubber seal would break otherwise and would need to be replaced.
The other hole with the thread is the Windsurfing option. This is where you have the option to attach a sail to your SUP board.
Let me know if you have any questions or if there is anything that we can help
I'm a big guy here in New Jersey been ridding the Glide 9'6 in everything from Summer Slop to Charging BIG winter surf and it works great Catches every wave with ease. In summer slop its fast and loose. In the winter the rails hold on the biggest and steepest waves. I'm definitely glad Jim (from Extreme Windsurfing) convinced me to get the PRO it is hyper fast and is holding up great.
The ONLY thing I'd (DID) change is the stock fins are a bit big for small surf. I can't wait to try it as a quad.
THIS BOARD ROCKS!!!!!!!
I had a chance to try out the 8' - 110 ltr Glide as an experiment so I could better understand the stability differences between volume and width as I'd had problems on larger narrower boards. I'm 85kg dry. Turns out for me, the 110 is really stable. While the volume is less, the stability is highly predictable, ie: when I'm off balance it is very easy to recover. Shockingly, its led me to wonder if I can shave off even more volume. The fact that it is so compact and allowed me to shed excess volume makes it a total blast to surf. I can't comment as to how big of surf it can go into and remain ideal, but I'm mostly not surfing anything very large anyway. For what I do, it's more fun than anything I've been on by a long shot. I really think you have something special here as you can remain stable while shedding unnecessary volume. It's not clear to me how much of the stability is shape and tail vs. just simply width. But I think an even smaller version/s might be really interesting. Congrats and thanks to the Quatro team.
Had a few sessions on the 84 SUP. Tried as quad but too much grip for our small waves.
Was using the old 86 with three fins, so switched the 84 to tri fin mode. Now a sweet ride.
Great board for our mushy waves of the North Sea. Stable stands and very maneuvrable for my 73 kg. Also the construction of the board gives a very good and solid feel.
