At Glide we have always prided ourselves in our lineage of toughness. The entire reason that Glide Paddlesports exists as a company is that we had the crazy idea that paddling a sup down a violent river was a good idea. Initially we were just trying to invent a technology that would let a hard paddle board survive river whitewater without breaking in half. They say that you need to break a lot of eggs to make an omelet, well we had to break a lot of paddle boards before we came up with the most durable hard boards on planet earth. When the market became accepting of inflatable SUPs, fishing paddle board and glide o2 retro we weren’t about to skimp on our inflatable paddle boards. So read on to learn how we make them as “bomb proof” as our hard boards.
