I've been dreaming of this day for over 5 years lmao (well maybe with a lot better waves). To catch that outside wave and connect it, and on a board like this. This is zoomed in a ton so you don't get an accurate sense of the distance, but growing up surfing Newport I never thought minute long rides were possible outside of Cape St. Francis or Jeffries - especially so close to home.

Gliding this little wave was a lot more fun in person than it is to watch the Surfline replay haha. There are two waves in this clip. In the first, you can kinda tell how quickly I was able to gain on the guy in front if I wanted to. This board has a kind of drive that's addicting in better waves. And the second wave in this clip I love how the board outlasted the SUP'er.

But big or small, clean or windy, this is what I feel like riding a glider is all about. These aren't for the spectators on the beach. Just purely for the rider and getting more connected to the waves and the ocean.

Clocking in at 8’0 this one is a tad small. Luckily, there’s a 10’7 coming along soon.

The 10’6 Rich Pavel is rather nice.
