    Search for the video of cj Nelson on a glider. It can be done but not always pretty.

    As soon as I saw the title to this thread I thought of a conversation you and I once had where you told me that some of the best noseriding boards aren't noseriders, it's knowing where to place the board and when to go or something like that.

    Yes but it is a long walk and more difficult to get in the right spot.

    I ask because I'm in talks with a shaper that's been working on a hybrid between a noserider and a glider. My current glider bogs down and releases when I get near the nose. Could be the archer. We will see.
