The Ultra Glide is a smooth surfing, very versatile mid length style board.
And now with an updated more responsive rocker this much loved model is going even better
Of course our unique FUTURE FORM bottom contour provides the buttery smooth rail to rail transitions that translate into easy turning and effortless gliding.
The finely tuned twin keel fin set up is the icing on the cake, giving maximum glide on the smaller days and rock solid control on bigger days.

* 6'4 - 6'8" step up style twin
* 6'10" - 7'6" mid length cruiser

THE ULTRA GLIDE STORY
I've been recovering from a serious shoulder injury that had me out of the water for almost 6 months and so I needed a board with heaps of paddle power that also allowed me to struggle to my feet easily. So I built myself a 7'0 x 21" x 2 3/4" with 43 litres of volume.
My first surf was small and soft Uluwatu with funky winds that were causing the sections to collapse prematurely. Normally this would be a really annoying surf because the collapsing sections were too long to get around. Not with the new Ultra Glide! While everybody else was struggling and getting caught by the sections, I was flying around them and getting 100 yd rides. Turns were smooth and I even got in a couple of off the white-water cutbacks.
Later in the week, I tested in some very chunky, double overhead waves at the top of the reef and was really surprised to find that the board had more speed, power and hold than my finely tuned step up quad pintails. I was really surprised by the amount of hold the board had. So rock solid and powerful under my feet.
The final test was some lower tide, kinda shallow and hollow peak and once again the board surprised me with just how well it pulled tight turns in the hollow pockets.
To be honest, I was surprised by just how versatile this board is. e result
