I saw that and... maybe its's the beige (although my surfing is pretty Beige) but it just seems like not a glider shape... and why shape 12' if its not a glider... Unless it's a gun but doesn't really look like a gun outline... kinda look like an old 70's twinny just blown up big... Anyways, I love their stuff but not sold on that one...

It's a 10.2, no idea why he shaped it but my guess would be for going insanely fast and like Torren said he wants boards for a certain feeling and maybe that feeling is going mach and doing big carves like he likes. It's a twin as he obviously loves twins so why not. That's my logic

Look, i'm sure it'll go well and better than anything i'll ever shape... And Torren will make it look amazing... but Torren would look good surfing a fridge door soooo......

But if i'm buying a glider, well that ain't it

Now there's a glider that I could get excited about!

Is it a bit wider than most? Is that what lets the outline curve be more gradual over the whole length? Or is it just that it's a bit more pulled in in the ends. Outline doesn't look too far from some of the serious XXL guns we all love to watch videos of.



Yeah fair bit wider than most, because I can never handle the sight of seeing such a straight planshape that happens with so many gliders you see. Even the ones from the States. It does indeed almost look "gunny".
Of course these sorts of boards aren't made to be turning as much as something shorter, but it's definitely a welcome thing when there's someone right in the way and you need to be able to turn without giving yourself 5 months notice.
The curvy outline definitely comes through when you're surfing it for sure. The fair amount of roll and turned up rails in the nose is what really does it for me though. No catching rails if you know what to do...


Unfortunately I missed this reply when it happened.... a belated thank you though!

I'm starting to warm to the idea of something in the 11' - 12' range for myself. Partly I've been intrigued for a long time, partly I finally got around to listening to the Dave Parmenter 'On Boards' podcasts and his PSV concept sounds like it could open up a whole lot of previously marginal or simply unsurfable spots.
Anyone here got experience with gliders vs something like the PSV? I understand that the PSV has elements of a prone paddleboard and as such is possibly skewed even more towards paddle over surf.

Maybe the PSV/Glider thing deserves it's own thread? Cause I'm definitely not looking for a big longboard.

Pretty nice looking/feeling Prince Kuhio left for Vicco today.

10'2" x 24" x 3 1/2"

A LOT of board, but was hidden very well inside the planshape and foil.
