The new Glide is identical to the Glide Pro except for it’s more affordable construction ideal for surf schools.
Offering a durable, tough and light board, but considerably more affordable than our Pro Sup constructions, the Glide uses a cubed fused cell 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.
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.
Available in 8‘0“, 8‘2“, 8‘6“, 8‘8“, 8‘10“, 9‘6“, 10‘2“.
Equivalent to 110, 120, 130, 145, 160, 190, 220 liters. Available in Wood Sandwich construction.
Available with US and Futures finboxes.
Available in neon blue.

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 have the Glide 8'10 which I use mainly as a float and ride wave board when the wind is light and the waves are below head high. This board is just awesome for me as I weigh 120kg and allows me to go sailing when all the small guys are on their 100litre freestyle wave boards. It's also the most popular boarding the beach when it's light and onshore but there's still a wave to ride! Highly recommend these boards, thanks KT!
Boards are great!
I\'ve been riding different SUP boards since 3 years, mostly surfing, I\'m 85kg dry and 185cm tall. Waves are pretty are small in my area, 0.5-1.5m and very powerless. My previous boards were Fanatic Allwave 9\'2 and Hokua 9\'10 and 9\'5. I could never imagine I could ride such a short board in local conditions as Glide 8\'6 without sucrificing caching wave ability. I got it from local distributor for testing and was so stoked, that I never gave it back (shut up and take my money:)) My impression of Quatro as a brand, was it makes too pro gear for perfect conditions (big powefull waves). Glide changed my mind!
So how it rides? I call it MAGIC, so smooth and tons of FUN! It\'s not technical board, it\'s very easy to ride. Very low rocker makes it plain immedeately and it turns very smooth, without loosing speed when coming from turns. Acceleration is great, you could get wave even with 1-2 strokes on perfect timing! Great fun to ride board for many conditions, you can btw even nose ride it. I was affraiding to do late drops, because of low rocker, but there is something in this shape/volume distribution that allows to do late drops without nose diving. This is my first carbon board and 130L volume seems to be different on carbon boards, it\'s feels bit (+5L+10L) more compearing to other boards. Board construction is very durable and bomb proof.
I wish you could have 8\'4x31 Glide for my girlfriend, she tryed 8\'6x32, but it\'s too wide for her. Got Carve 8\'4 for testing, hopefully it will works on small powerless waves for 55kg;)
For me, the 8.8 is the perfect blend of flotation, stability, and shred factor. Turns "1-2 foot , poor to fair surf " into an epic day.
