I recall seeing a shape called a "glybrid" from Ryan Burch.
Yep! I've had mixed successes on my 11' Hunt. Setting the trim is important and once set just getting to the nose. I've had mixed success in doing it. Gotten up there a time or two but the remainder of the time changed the trim due foot placement and buried a rail. Then again I'm far from a Ryan Burch or a CJ and over twice their age! Just getting up to my feet is a choir.
In that case, talk to Wes Holderman. I had an 11' that is pretty much spot on what you are asking about that he shaped. One of the best boards I've ever owned and I often regret the sale. You won't be disappointed.
This GP noserides. Long way to the tip (at 12 feet), but, as stated above, it's about wave position and, on a board this big, how you fin it (hint, lots of area helps). Nick Palandrani shaped this one and now shapes under his own Source label and does lots of custom work.
All big boards, while they may glide, aren’t gliders. For me, when Skip shaped his big boards with their parallel rails and large double concaves those defined a genre which came to be known as gliders.
In my experience gliders will noseride but they’re much harder to noseride than a long longboard. TW’s board is basically an 11’ Legacy - a long longboard. And while I’ve seen Ryan’s 14’ board and his glider models I haven’t put my hands on them so I can’t comment there. TW, RB and CJ can noseride anything. Matter of fact how about going the opposite direction...ever seen Lopez hang five on his bolts at Pipe?
My 12’er noserides and it’s EPS. Soft entry, curve in the outline, a little vee and hard rails in the tail. More versitle, more surfable, more noserideable and less fashionable.
That Vee Hull that source Surfboards makes sure looks interesting.
I had a 10ft Tyler Warren Salinas that felt gliderish and would noseride well...
? I just ran across this. My knowledge on this subject is borderline nil.
The shaper that I just ordered my newest Glider from has been tinkering with rounder noses and a little concave to make getting closer to the nose more user friendly. Pictures and ride report once I get the board.
