    The leash is one of the most important pieces of safety gear you can use with your paddleboard. If you do happen to fall of your board your leash will keep you attached to the paddleboard and it allows you to quickly get back on your board. Unlike shorter leashes, the 10’ leash gives you full freedom to move around on your board, and the coils keep the leash out of your way and tangle free.

The T-Grip handle adjusts to fit paddlers of almost all sizes, ensuring a comfortable grip and precise control.

Glides hard boards .

4 yrs ago I purchased a 12 6 glide nflateable PADDEL board . Durability, weight distribution,, speed, manuverabilit y. Honestly 4 yrs. And still no mager problems, I'm sticking with GLIDE SUPS. INVESTED IN 2 IROCKER BOARDS. BOTH WERE LEAKERS AND DECK PEELING .JUST AFTER 2 TIME ON THE WATER...SENT THEM BACK that same day, sorry IROCKER but StICKEN WITH GLIDE SUPS.

The Retro is a dream

I LOVE my new Retro board!! I used it for the first time on Upper Saranac Lake in NY and it was such a treat! I opted to use only the long fin and I felt very stable on it. I went for long paddles (at least 90 minutes) and it was a FUN, fabulous workout. On one of the calm days, I tried doing pilates on it. Even without the 2 smaller fins, I was successful. I’m active and in my 50s and highly recommend this board to anyone who wants to try an SUP. The delivery was easy and the price was right. Thanks, Glide, for making a winner!

Highly recommend

High Quality, US Made, looks great at functions well. Very responsive company to deal with. Couldn't be happier.

Strong board !

Performs great and we have no doubt that it will be the same in 5 - 10 years. Our only complaint is that there were no instructions on how to install the fin. Information on fore and aft placement and how hard to push down would be helpful.

Retro 11'

I bought my retro in July 2015.
I LOVE this board!!! I picked this one for a few reasons: 1-made is USA and they recycle as much foam as they can!! 2- durability...I knew I would be traveling around and I would be by rocks and cement..putting it on car and off..etc. 3- full soft pad..(A Must have for comfort and passengers), 4- Stability.
Well...Every one of these reasons...have panned out to exactly why I love this board! Read on.....
I traveled xc with it paddling in many different lakes! I reside near Lake Erie, with lots of rough water days...and have no problem! I have used this board extensively! I can't tell you how many dogs I've taken with me paddling..they love it!! The full length soft pad is great for bringing along another small person or 1-5 dogs!!! Or to do yoga, or nap! But the absolute most impressive quality of this board is it's durability!! I just recently (last week...Aug 2020) got distracted from finishing strapping board on top of car...and I drove off...I drove for a bit until I heard a big loud crash!! My heart sank..as I realized what just happened, and looked back to see my board bouncing on the road behind me!! It went FLYING off my car...bounced and tumbled and landed across road!!! I panicked!! Totally sick to stomach..thinking I ruined my beloved board...but to my thankful surprise...it's completely undamaged!!@!@! I LOVE LOVE this board and the company!!! THANK YOU GLIDE for this outstanding quality of this board!!!
