Sup construction methods for extremely durable boards.

Glide Paddle Boards epitomizes the pinnacle of craftsmanship and sustainability in the stand-up paddleboarding industry. From our humble beginnings in Salt Lake City, Utah, where we meticulously hand-shaped each board, Glide has been committed to excellence. Our journey has led us to develop innovative construction methods and utilize superior materials, resulting in some of the most durable SUPs available today. Our rigorous testing, showcased in our "Will It Break Wednesday" series, demonstrates the unmatched resilience of both our hardboards and inflatable paddle boards.

Our dedication to superior construction distinguishes Glide from other brands. Our boards are not only incredibly durable but also lightweight, ensuring an optimal blend of quality, performance, and aesthetic appeal. Whether you're gliding on flat water or navigating through river rapids, Glide's boards offer unparalleled versatility and durability, making them a preferred choice for adventurers like those on Lindblad Expeditions and even National Geographic.

Better sup construction for a lighter environmental impact.

Glide's commitment extends beyond creating high-performance boards. We strive for a minimal environmental footprint, which is why we developed the Glide Surface Shield (GSS). This patent-pending technology is free of VOCs and eliminates the need for harmful epoxy paints, reducing pollution and protecting marine life. Our innovative use of 100% non-toxic Entropy Bio resins, sourced from the byproducts of other industries, exemplifies our dedication to green manufacturing principles.

Furthermore, Glide leads in recycling efforts, particularly with EPS foam, significantly reducing our carbon footprint by partnering with local suppliers. Our GSS coating not only enhances eco-friendliness but also ensures that our boards can withstand the rigors of paddleboarding, from paddle strikes to encounters with rocks and debris.

Building a better inflatable

In the realm of inflatable paddle boards, Glide sets the standard with construction techniques that surpass the industry norm. Our boards offer superior stability and durability, avoiding the "springy" feel characteristic of lesser-quality inflatables. This results in a more enjoyable and secure paddleboarding experience, supported by materials and designs that last longer and perform better.
