GLIDE: the boat that changed the rules!

The Glide is part of kayaking folklore. Corran Addison designed a boat that was so advanced, that was so obviously going to sweep the world freestyle championships, that the rules were changed days before the event to stop this from happening. 

Twenty Four years later, Corran is doing it again. The new Glide is going to totally change your perception of what a river running, playful and exciting kayak should look like, and should paddle. It's going to change the rules you've imposed on yourself in your understanding of how a river should be played, or how it can be paddled.

The Glide is breaking all the preconceived ideas that reign supreme in design theory. It's going to open up the river to downriver playing, light creeking, and full on playboating, all at the same time. This is not a half slice. It's not a full slice. It's a 2/3 slice that's as easy to handle as a half slice, and as exciting as a full slice. A fully dry riding bow, that you can also use to access vertical moves with ease even in relatively small features. 

Combine this with Corran's famous fast, loose and carving hulls, the easiest-to-squirt tail out there, and unparalleled river running ease (because no one likes being upside down), and you have a winning design.

The Glide is available in two specifications, with special colors available only for Pre-orders.
The Honey Bee, Sugar Overload and Sparkle are the lighter construction for less abusive boaters, and the Murder Hornet and Midnight Moon are the slightly heavier and stronger build. The yellow ships with the power seat, while all other boats use our 2021 Skeletor Extreme outfitting.

The Glide Cockpit is 2" wider and 2" longer than standard Soul kayaks cockpits to fit bigger people. Most Soul sized keyhole skirts will still fit it, unless your brand of skirt was already stretched to the limit, then you might need a Big Deck.

We wrap the kayak in a cool bag, rather than disposable plastic and cardboard packing. We put a skin of plastic over this to help protect the bag from dirt and scuffing, but it is also possible that the boats can arrive with bags more abused than this. This is a free bag for you to keep and use, but we cannot make shipping damage claims for damaged bags (the few times that it happens)
