The 2013 Glider is a dedicated school and light wind board. It is very forgiving and easy to handle, so any rider can enjoy a nice session with it. It is also able to get you riding when light winds tend to keep you out of the water. The fact that it is very user friendly makes it a perfect choice for schools and entry level riders that want to progress.

The Glider is engineered using a special snowboard like outline that its edge has contact with water along maximum length and does its most to direct the rider upwind when needed. This is possible due to the use of a reverse side radius. The wider and longer shape assures exceptional stability and improves its lightwind performance. It also assures great early planing potential.

A 3D top plus a 3 stage flex assures excellent comfort during the rides, as well as precise control even in stronger winds plus extra pop. Computer calculated and rider tested 3D surface profile with different thickness of top deck creates dedicated zones of various flex levels across the board ensuring immediate absorption of any vibrations and provides the board with outstanding pop. The anti-spray cuts prevent spray to the face to assure smooth drive. The optimal volume distribution assures great floatation for heavy riders and beginners.

The Glider is built using a reinforced airex plus wood core and ABS bumper rails for maximum strength and an elegant, glossy, anti-scratch top sheet.

Runs nice in slower winds and it is very stable. Does not have much pop, but it is easy to control. It is very good for a beginner. It is also easy to edge and go upwind.
