Keith on the Glide: “My idea for the Glide was to create something easy, stable and fast to paddle, yet it was supposed to shine with maneuverability.
This board comes with solid rockers and full outlines, giving it a completely different level of stability and comfort, greatly enhanced by ISDTM (Integrated Stability Deck), which serves as an ergonomic stance platform. To me the Glide is the go to board for cruising and small waves. This is the Sup that my wife and me grab and go to the south side, throw our 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.
Available in 110, 120, 130, 145, 160, 190, 220 liters.
Available in neon blue on white.
The Glide features a thruster setup, its bigger center fin
providing both stability on straights and drive on turns.
PRO construction. Full sandwich build, featuring FDS™ Full Deck Sandwich for immaculate flex, FBS™ Full Bottom Sandwich for supreme strength, DSS™ Double Sandwich Stance for paramount rigidity in the heel areas, all laminated with Biaxial glass. This performance construction combines light weight, a crisp feel and excellent durability. We consciously do not use a carbon deck because it would result in too stiff of a board for Sup surfing and inhibit much desired flex and pop.

The Glide comes in a beautifully wide range of sizes, providing just the right volume for everyone.

Most Sup boards on the market are covered in color.
White however keeps the board cooler and allows for
the construction to work at its best and last longer.

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.
