More Glide, less effort, that’s what the entirely new line of our all-around board is about.
Keith Teboul: “I wanted to make the Glide Max effortless to paddle, easy for anyone, anywhere, to just have fun and cruise.”
The new shapes feature added length and more parallel rails, which increases paddling efficiency and glide. The idea here is that you are looking for something fun that’s easy to paddle and ride on waves.
The board comes with solid rockers and full outlines, giving it a completely different level of stability and comfort. This is greatly enhanced by the Integrated Stability Deck, which serves as an ergonomic 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 a single to a double vee, making it a very agile board.
To us the Glide Max is the go-to board for cruising and having a great time in small waves. This is the Sup that Keith and his wife grab to take to the south side of Maui and ride fun waves.
The deck consists of a generous diamond groove Quatro pad covering both your paddling and surfing stance for added comfort, while leaving the nose and rails bare to save weight and improve performance. All boards come with a raised kicktail for added grip when riding waves.
The Glide Max also features a plug to attach a windsurfing rig for use in flat water.
The Glide Max is built like our windsurf boards, full high density foam sandwich, laminated in glass and carbon.
Available in 8’6, 8’10, 9’2, 9’6, 10’2 feet.
Max Light Full Double Sandwich Construction.
Hyper Skin High Density.
US finbox & Futures ILT finboxes.
Available in Pastel Blue on Deep Blue.

I'm an older longboarder ready to make the jump to SUP surfing. Been putting around the lakes, rivers, and san Juans here in WA state with inflatables and lately been imagining getting them in warmer waves, now that I'm retired. Anyway I'm heading down south to SoCal soon for a couple weeks and will be taking my new 10' Quatro Glide Max! She's a beauty. Super stoked!!! Just wanted to let you know. Thanks man. Aloha
Hands down, THE best SUP Surf board I’ve ever owned, and I’ve owned my share of them. Love everything about my New Glide Max. A tad heavier than my Infinity 9/6 New Deal, but much more stable yet just as agile. Love the deck! This is now my Go To board! I’ve only had it a week and have already received more compliments about the way it looks from people on the beach and in the water than any other SUP’S or Prone surf boards I’ve owned. I’m very greatfull to Quatro and Paddle Planet, Encinitas,Ca for making it happen.
I love the glide!
Is there a way I can get the 2019 Glide pro in 8’6. Could you do a special order.
Response: Aloha Rick, yes, please, feel free to reach out to any of our distributors or dealers around the world. You will find them under our contact drop-down menu on the upper left corner of our Quatro website page. All the best! Francisco

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!!!!!!!
