2023/24 Model, ridden by Ridge and Kai Lenny
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 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 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 also features a plug to attach a windsurfing rig for use in flat water.
Available in 8’6, 8’10, 9’2, 9’6, 10’2 feet.
Full Double Sandwich Construction.
US finbox & Futures ILT finboxes.
Available in Pastel Blue on Deep 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
