Starting in San Diego with Skip Frye, or maybe ancient Hawaiians depending how you look at it, these boards were built with a “cross-country” approach to surfing in mind. A sort of split experience of paddling, surfing a break, paddling to another, surfing, etc. This idea intrigued me, and once I got to experience a glider for the first time, a Skip in fact, it was all over. You tap into something different than the normal surfing experience. You slow down, feel the wave more, notice your surroundings in a new way, and really get back to what I like to think surfing was about early on in Hawaii. Gliders are not for everyone, but for those intrigued the path is a long one. And remember, with great power comes great responsibility…
