Slingshot Glide V11
LIGHTWIND / EFFICIENCY / PROGRESSION
151 // 161
The Glide’s reputation stands strong as one of the best beginner and light wind twin tips on the market. Last year we introduced the Trapezoidal tip and tail, which increased the effective edge of the board in the water without increasing the overall size and cumbersome nature of a longer board. This also increased the upwind ability of the board for beginners and light wind warriors a like.
WHY WE MADE IT
We built the Glide V11 to make light wind riding and entry level progression as easy as possible. The construction, size, and features were chosen to guarantee rider success.
WHY YOU’LL LOVE IT
- The Glide will be the first and last twin tip to get upwind on a light wind day.
- One of the most proven light wind twin tip shapes of all time.
- Easy to hold power in case the wind picks up, making it one of the most versatile “big boards” on the market.
TRAPEZOIDAL TIP & TAIL
We introduced the Trapezoidal tip and tail shape last year. It extends your effective board area in the water and also acts a rudder or an additional center fin. The extended length gives you more range and this shape also provides more tracking for upwind performance.
ATOMIC WOOD CORE
Sustainably grown Paulownia gives the lively, springy character that Slingshot boards are famous for. Vertically laminated construction harnesses the collective strength of the wood’s grain and provides strength, durability and consistent flex over the life of the board.
CARBON BEDROCK INSERTS
Light, flexible and durable inserts that maintain the board’s flex underfoot for a consistent feel from tip to tail.
SINGLE CONCAVE HULL
Provides smooth tracking and effortless upwind performance.
SINGLESHOT FUSION SIDEWALL
We’ve transferred the same technology found in high durometer urethane skateboard wheels into the rail of all our boards. Our innovative manufacturing process literally infuses the rail into the board cores in one single shot, producing unrivaled dampening and durability.
DURA LIGHT BASE
This .2mm base material is the ideal strength to weight ratio. Lightweight performance in a strong and durable package.
