SURFTECH-GLIDER (GERRY LOPEZ)
Gerry Lopez calls this glider the “secret weapon.” If you are looking for an unfair advantage over the rest of the crowd, look no further than this fast paddling, quick gliding, lightning bolt of a board. Very subtle bottom contours allow Gerry’s Glider to move over flat water with ease, giving this board a feel of magical momentum. A flat deck hides extra volume under the chest when paddling and creates stability when gliding from section to section. A pulled-down rail allows the board to change direction without having to muscle it and also cuts nicely across steep sections of the wave face. Minimal rider feedback is necessary to get this bad boy up and going. You really just need to make it to your feet, and the board will do the rest. The Gerry Glider will make 1ft waves a blast but could potentially be ridden in large surf as well if the surfer is capable of handeling the speed the board generates.
