When designing the Glide V11, Slingshot set out to create the easiest twin tip in the world to ride. That meant more sizes and a larger foundation for riders to learn on. Now in its 11th iteration, The Glide’s reputation stands strong as one of the best beginner and light wind twin tips on the market. Last year, Slingshot introduced the Trapezoidal tip and tail, which increased the effective edge of the board in the water without increasing the overall size and cumbersome nature of a longer board. This also increased the upwind ability of the board for beginners and light wind warriors alike.
