SLIDE: the little cousin of the boat that changed the rules!

The Glide is part of kayaking folklore, and the Slide is the smaller spin off of this revolutionary boat.

The new Slide is not just a smaller Glide. Corran is not a fan of direct scaling - smaller paddlers are not simply X% smaller in both height and weight. For example a 5.4" 140lbs paddler is 30% lighter than a 6' 200lbs paddler, but is only 10% shorter. In addition, smaller paddlers generally have lower strength to weight ratios. As such, the Slide is based on the Glide, but it is not just a small Glide.
.
Starting with a scaled Glide, then narrowed it up just a hair for easier edge to edge transfer. We then removed extra tail volume so it's as easy to squirt as the big boat is for larger paddlers, reduced slightly nose volume in the first 2' of the bow, kept similar rocker proportionately through the boats entire length, but reduced rocker slightly within the area of the spin disk, so its faster to paddle into waves with less effort. The nose width at the feet is reduced just a tad to aid with edging, while still having the width for support in the tail which is slicy.
.
The cockpit is also smaller than the Glide, but is not scaled proportionately to the rest of the boat - it's scaled to fit the paddlers using the boat independently of the overall boats size.
.
The result is the Slide is going to totally change your perception of what a river running, playful and exciting kayak should paddle like for teenagers, women and smaller men. 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 Slide 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 Slide is available in two specifications, with special colors available only for Pre-orders.
The Pirate Treasure, Sugar Overload and Sparkle are the lighter construction for less abusive boaters, and the Millennial 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 Slide Cockpit is 0.5" narrower and 1" shorter than standard Soul kayaks cockpits to fit smaller people. Most keyhole skirts sized to fit Soul Standard cockpits will still fit it, but this will be a little easier to get on, and the cockpit itself will fit more snugly.

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)
