Durability and Performance. That’s it. What more is anyone really looking for in a paddle board? Glide was founded and run by professional Kayaker turned to SUP that has 20+ years’ experience designing and building a successful watersports company; they started Glide because they couldn’t find any quality, high-performing, durable boards on the market.
Glide started the SUP Yoga phenomenon by designing the industry’s first Yoga specific paddle board which was featured in the WanderLust festivals. Our ultra-durable boards quickly became a #1 choice for rental fleets across the US. Our hard boards utilize our patent-pending GSS (Glide Surface Shield) polymer which allows the boards to absorb 600 times the punishment that a standard epoxy board can handle. We have a whole series on YouTube called “Will it Break Wednesday” where we put our money where our mouth is.
We have brought that same passion to our O2 inflatable paddle board line which utilizes 4 layers of military grade PVC that are integrated using our cutting-edge Fusion technology. With over 33,000 reinforced drop stiches per board, Glide inflatables can be inflated to an industry-dominating 25 PSI.
Unlike many other stand-up paddle board companies, we actually own a factory. We know our boards, and with customer feedback we’re always at the drawing board looking for ways to take our product even further. Don’t take our word it, try it for yourself.
