Hey there, I ran across the board I like and seller describes it as "It's an old school glider for the retro enthusiast or an older surfer in generally smaller conditions." I think I'm more confused than I was before. What are gliders for? To glide right? I get this part. I remember someone called them " Point and shoot", does it mean you really cannot turn it? Are they easy to paddle? Is it an everyday board or is it something special what taken out just a few days a year? I'm in Boston and don't surf OH. p.s. Perhaps this question and recent shopping frenzy caused by my lackluster experience the last couple of times when I felt foreign on my board. I probably just have to get out more often and practice but aren't we always looking for a magic board that will do everything for you?
