The 2013 Slingshot Glide offers top performance from jumping to freeride cruising sessions in marginal wind conditions. It is not the typical lazy lightwind board that only allows you to move around at a slow speed when the wind barely blows.

The Glide is agile and allows you to perform cool tricks and ride fast on those light wind days that keep other riders away from the water. The Glide features a new shape, with a narrower outline which allows your heels to stay closer for better edging and power control.

The longer rail line, combined with the extra shape surface, provides impressive lightwind performance and allows you to get on a plane faster and push upwind with ease. The Glide can accelerate quickly and reach cool speeds even in the lightest wind conditions. It also has a stiffer flex which produces good pop and makes the board playful when the wind barely blows.

It is equipped with the new Slingshot Fastrack mounting system which offers limitless micro adjustment stance options and a superior rider to board connection. The board is engineered using a full wood core which provides optimal flex and response and Resin-x layups plus Fusion sidewalls. It is shipped with Fins, Bolt-On 4.0 Bindings and Grab Handle.

the length is impressive. the longest tt i've seen. needs a bit getting used to it. on water, in 10-12 knots it planes quickly and runs fine upwind. it's easy to move around, turn and spin. it has a light feel. it has a clean, smooth glide....more
