The Aboards GLIDER with a 3D top deck is a dedicated board for light wind conditions for those who want to kite while others are staying on shore and for teaching in kiteschools to allow fast progression with a bigger and wider board. Over the past seasons this board has exploded in popularity among schools and in countries with dominating lighter winds. The Aboards GLIDER has special reverse side-radius outline for light wind. Unlike conventional twintips which have only rear to central part of the board’s side in the water during edging, the special snowboard like outline of The Aboards GLIDER ensures that its edge has contact with water along maximum length and does its most to direct the rider upwind.
The Aboards GLIDER features reinforced airex+wood core for maximum strength and light weight in central part and various flex levels at tips. Special anti-scratch cover and ABS bumper rails ensure maximum strength and durability at reasonable weight.
