The Glider uses a Mini Mal Template. This shape is super popular as it is ideal for surfers of most levels. 

It features some extra width and thickness to bump up the volume and ensure it has plenty of paddle power.

The template is nice and straight, helping to easily generate down-the-line speed, while the rounded nose provides extra stability and ensure the board can plane nice and easily.

It's got a relatively low, continuous rocker. This allows the board to glide at speed, while still allowing turns and helping to prevent nose-dives.

We've opted to use a Rounded Square tail to create the perfect mix of looseness, release and hold. We've made it a touch wider on this model, providing a bit of extra lift and acceleration from the smallest of waves.

We've also done our best to solve the #1 problem of softboards - the rails! The Hybrid Range features an updated version of our Parabolic Rolled Rail Technology.

These are then hand shaped, allowing softer rails near the nose tapering down to a sharp, harder edged rail at the tail. Similar to regular fibreglass surfboards, it allows if to be forgiving and not catch rails up front, but gives it a bit more bite making it easier to turn off the tail.

Similarly, to a stringer it also provides extra stiffness in the board, and generally helps to increase the durability of the board. 

This board features a Thruster Fin Set up using Futures Fin Boxes.
