Reviews for Glide 12'6" AST by Naish
Submitted by: pedaler on 2014-11-22
Summary: new to SUP, I knew I wanted a stable board to handle the messy wind and waves of the SF bay, and after trying several boards this one clearly stood out. Pointed bow to pierce the waves, good grip pad under the toes and very stable to ride. Now I live close to a popular rowing lake and have fun trying to keep up with them as they skim by me. I also like having a very visual board (bright yellow), to be seen on the water and as I tow my board to the lake behind my bicycle!
Pros: stable, pointed bow, good hand grip, color
Cons: only gripe I have is it chips easily on the rails from hitting it with the paddle, and after 2 years on it the padding is losing some of its surface
Usage: almost daily for fitness, yoga, getting out for some fresh air, and race it occasionally as I only live less than a mile to the lake, and commute there by bike!
