We created the first rental specific board in 2014. Our rental board was built to make first-time paddlers have a great time and success at standing and paddling.
Glide rental boards are completely flat and wide under where the paddler stands which makes the initial stability very good. We then lowered the rocker in the nose and tail, this helps get the board up to speed as fast as possible. Having a little speed under the board makes it much more stable. On the bottom of the board, the tail has a deep vee which helps keep the board going straight which can be a challenge for first-time paddlers. The board also has a full deck pad with a brushed finish. The pad is very comfortable to stand on, and the full length makes it great for taking kids along for the ride.
For you as a rental company the boards are made with our proprietary GSS finish which makes the boards ultra-durable. Check out our will it break videos to see exactly how durable. They also have a lock hole in the tail of the board so you can lock up the boards when you are done renting them. We made the rental board to be a maintenance freeboard that will serve your rental needs year after year.
