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!!!

Glide is the best

I've bought my Glide off of Craigslist about 7years ago. I store the board outside near a pecan tree. After sitting unused after the birth of my two kids for about 5 years,I've finally pulled them out and went paddling with my friend. I was super impressed how durable the board held up being stored in the elements. Best board out there.

Best SUP for dogs!

Not sure who loves our new Glide Retro 11' better, me or my Italian Greyhound. Perfect board if you paddle with dogs because of the huge, soft deckpad. Super comfy for Leo!

You get what you pay for...

I've bought a total of 3 boards of my own over the last 2 years. I've ridden countless other boards, both hard and inflatable and I can easily say this is probably the best board you can buy. Yes there are a hundred cheaper options like with any product but most SUPs are just waiting to crack the first time you drop them, which trust me WILL happen. You won't be sorry if you pay a bit more for this brand.
