Slingshot Glide V11 2021 Kiteboard
When designing the Glide, Slingshot set out to create the easiest twin tip in the world to ride. That meant more size and a larger foundation for riders to learn on. Now in it’s 11th iteration, The Slingshot Glide’s reputation stands strong as one of the best beginner and light wind twin tips on the market.

SIZES: 151 / 161cm
Last year we introduced the Trapezoidal tip and tail, which increased the effective edge of the board in the water without increasing the overall size and cumbersome nature of a longer board. This also increased the upwind ability of the board for beginners and light wind warriors a like.
WHY YOU’LL LOVE THE GLIDE
- The Glide will be the first and last twin tip to get upwind on a light wind day.
- One of the most proven light wind twin tip shapes of all time.
- Easy to hold power in case the wind picks up, making it one of the most versatile “big boards” on the market.

Trapezoidal Tip & Tail:
We introduced the Trapezoidal tip and tail shape last year. It extends your effective board area in the water and also acts a rudder or an additional center fin. The extended length gives you more range and this shape also provides more tracking for upwind performance.
Atomic Wood Core:
Sustainably grown Paulownia gives the lively, springy character that Slingshot boards are famous for. Vertically laminated construction harnesses the collective strength of the wood’s grain and provides strength, durability and consistent flex over the life of the board.
Carbon Bedrock Inserts:
Light, flexible and durable inserts that maintain the board’s flex underfoot for a consistent feel from tip to tail.
Single Concave Hull:
Provides smooth tracking and effortless upwind performance.
Singleshot Fusion Sidewall:
We’ve transferred the same technology found in high durometer urethane skateboard wheels into the rail of all our boards. Our innovative manufacturing process literally infuses the rail into the board cores in one single shot, producing unrivaled dampening and durability.
This .2mm base material is the ideal strength to weight ratio. Lightweight performance in a strong and durable package.
