The new Nano Pro is based on Keith Teboul’s work with Jeffery and Finn Spencer on Maui. They are young riders who have very different needs, like so many kids getting into the Sup world for the first time.
Following this high demand for smaller Sup boards for kids and the great feedback we received on the initial Nano Pro, it was a pleasure for Keith to again bring his surfing knowledge into the smaller boards. They have similar lengths and volumes in the smaller range. The outline on these boards is progressive, with a relatively aggressive rocker, as kids need all the help they can get to turn as they are small and light. We incorporated the Integrated Stability Deck on a more expanded area of the board to create an even more stable platform to stand, paddle and surf on. There is a 3/4 aft pad for supreme comfort.
These boards are fast stable, easy to paddle and nimble to turn. Your kids will be ripping it up on the Nano Pro before you know it.
The new Glide Pro is more surfing oriented throughout all its sizes. Keith Teboul’s idea for the Glide Pro was to create something easy, stable and fast to paddle, yet it has a shining spark in its wave maneuverability.
The board comes with solid rockers and full outlines, giving it a completely different level of stability and comfort, greatly enhanced by the Integrated Stability Deck, which serves as an ergonomic stance platform, working slightly against the convex deck, offering a solid stance. The nose rocker has a lower entry for ease of paddling and a very constant glide, hence the name. The bottom transitions from single to double to vee for a very agile board.
To us the Glide Pro is the go to board for cruising and small waves. This is the Sup that Keith and his wife grab and go to the south side, throw their dog onboard and ride the fun waves.
The deck consists of a generous diamond grove Quatro pad covering both your paddling and surfing stance for added comfort, while leaving the nose and rails bare to save weight for improved performance. All boards come with a raised tail kick for added grip when riding waves.
The Glide features a plug to attach a windsurfing rig.
The new Glide is identical to the Glide Pro except for it’s more affordable construction ideal for surf schools.
Offering a durable, tough and light board, but considerably more affordable than our Pro Sup constructions, the Glide uses a cubed fused cell foam core. An advanced wood sandwich build guarantees for light weight and supreme water resistance.
Regular Glide models feature unidirectional glass rein-forced rails for extra stiffness in surf conditions. High grade epoxy resin creates an impact resistant outer skin while increasing overall hull strength.

The new Carve Pro has been radically changed from previous years to deliver a vastly improved experi- ence for paddlers of all abilities and weights. The range sees the introduction of a new bigger Carve Pro for heavier paddlers as well as a new smaller board for advanced, professional and lighter weight riders.
New features on this board include a faster rocker, the boards simply accelerate quicker and have a faster top end speed on the wave, making turns more radical. You can make the section easier than on previous models. The faster rocker also helps increase paddling speed, making it easier to catch waves and get into the best positons. This is especially noticeable in fast waves and crowded line ups. Speed is so important in small and big waves alike and these new boards have lots of it.
Furthermore the new Carve Pro delivers increased nose lift in combination with a narrower nose width, this really helps when dropping, especially late drops on bigger waves when you don’t want the nose to catch. Thinner rails aid in a looser feel, and a tighter turning radius. The new narrower overall width is faster, while a more shallow tail makes the the board feel smaller to enhance the surfboard feeling with more release on the top turn.
The Integrated Stability Deck provides a stabel ride. This greatly helps to reduce fatigue, especially with smaller tippy boards. The new Carve Pro comes with a 3/4 pad.
The Thruster or Quad option allows a wide range of tuning. In bigger surf you can really benefit from the quad option for more speed and grip.
The Carve Pro delivers a consistent feel through the range. Each board has similar surfing characteristics with some progression as the boards get smaller. The 7’7” is the most extreme board in the range, while the larger boards in the range are a little more forgiving and make it easy to surf, have fun and progress.
These boards excel at anything from 1⁄2 ft to 15 ft faces, they love to be surfed. Each board in the new range was tested in a wide range of conditions in Hawaii, Califor- nia, South America & Europe. The result is a range which is built to handle a huge array of waves. Speed is so important in small and big waves and these new boards have lots of it. If the waves are big or the water choppy then changing up a board size has often been a good idea. Stability was also incredibly important to make these boards user friendly in a wide range of conditions, for example in big waves there is a lot of water moving around and staying upright and confident is very important. In choppy, lumpy conditions, being stable, these new boards enable you to use a smaller board and surf better.
The optimal wave size for this range would be 2 to 10ft faces, this is what most people surf in and hence this is what the boards are optimized for. The 7’7” is a little narrower compared rest of the range and is tuned for more advanced surfing and hence can handle even faster waves, which riders of this board will tend to seek out.
If you are very experienced on the 7’10” and want to take your surfing to a new level this could be your next board. This is a board with no limits.
