Gliders are what brought me to this forum, and there doesn’t seem to be a picture oriented thread- so let’s catalog as many as possible here..
Show your big boards, and share a word or three if you like..
I’ve posted this somewhere, but I’ll start with my 11’ Jim Phillips Ka Po’e Ae’a. It’s my second JP 11’0”. This one has his ‘Hawaiian’ rocker, and is a double step deck. Only 3” on stringer and is pretty sporty and works in a wide range of conditions.
Please show all of your cool glides please!

Ryan Lovelace 10’13” (as written by Ryan on board) Thick Lizzy Glider. Bought from a Jammer, sold to a Jammer (only sold to raise funds to buy my wife a special 65th birthday gift), and was lucky enough to be able to buy it back.

Paddles well, catches everything, and surfs extremely well. I’ve been riding it almost exclusive since getting it back. Foam is addictive.

Beautiful outline and foil on that board. Jim does blend curves nicely.

Hopefully my 11'3" contribution to this thread will be done in a couple of weeks. Until then... I have to be patient.
