Our new Ultra Glide model, is the first twin fin addition to our mid-length series of boards, a perfect board for smooth, stylish surfing wherever you go.
The beautifully balanced plan shape of this board with it’s wider outline and a pulled in nose and tail, combined with the twin-fin set up and high performance rocker gives this board incredible speed, control and glide. It performs extremely well in smaller softer waves, gliding effortlessly around sections that other boards wouldn't, and yet is still very comfortable coming around quickly in tight pockets and hollow peaks if needed. In larger overhead waves it has a solid feeling underfoot, and the drive and power will really surprise you.
This is Jim’s favourite board in the midlength series and he’s taken this board for a glide all the way from waist high waves to a no paddle take-off at the Uluwatu Bomby.
So if you’re looking for a board with tons of paddle power, that’s super easy to surf and looks a dream, this is the board for you.
Ride this board anywhere from 6’4 to 8’1, but we recommend going about one foot taller than yourself to get the most out of this design.

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. A longer twin keel fish is something I've been interested in for a while now and so I built myself a 7'0 x 21" x 2 3/4" giving me 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 a couple of off the whitewater cutbacks.
Later in the week, I tested in some very chunky double overhead waves up 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 solid and powerful under my feet.
The final test was some lower tide, very shallow and hollow peak and racetrack and this time, and once again the board surprised me with just how well she pulled tight turns in the hollow faces. All in all, an outstanding super versatile design that picks up waves ridiculously easy and really will handle any conditions. Can't recommend this design enough for fun and easy surfing. he result
