Shop's Choice: Every now and then we find products that defy their design. The Quatro Glide is one of those boards. The wide wounded shape of the Glide should mean that it's a stable board that will be a blast to ride in the waves. And to no ones surprise it is an amazing wave board. But what we didn't expect is that the Glide work so well with a windsurfing sail on it, and paddle flat-water so much better than it should. Kieth Taboul used some magic on the Glide giving it an efficiency that we've never found in any other short wave board. With a windsurfing sail the board does as the name suggests and Glide's incredibly well. This along with impressive balance makes the Glide the ultimate tool for teaching new riders, learning sail handling tricks for the more advanced and then becoming a wave magnet when sailed in waves. For flat-water paddling the Glide's glide is also impressive and unlike most short boards it can hold a reasonably straight line. Again we don't know how it does it, we just love that it does.
Glide - All-Around Thruster
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.
The all new Glide AST is identical to the Glide Pro except for it’s construction. Just like the Pro version, the AST features the ISDTM which works slightly against the convex deck dome, offering a more solid stance.

Accessories - This board comes with:
This board comes with a set of perfectly corresponding MFC fin models and sizes to complement its superior shape.

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.
AST construction. Offering a durable, tough and light board, but considerably more affordable than carbon constructions. AST construction uses a cubed fused cell foam core. An advanced sandwich build guarantees for light weight and supreme water resistance. AST models feature un-directional glass-reinforced rails for extra stiffness in surf conditions. High grade epoxy resin creates an impact resistant outer skin while increasing overall hull strength.
