Gerry Lopez Glider

Gerry Lopez calls this glider the “secret weapon.” If you are looking for an unfair advantage over the rest of the crowd, look no further than this fast paddling, quick gliding, lightning bolt of a board. Very subtle bottom contours allow Gerry’s Glider to move over flat water with ease, giving this board a feel of magical momentum. A flat deck hides extra volume under the chest when paddling and creates stability when gliding from section to section. A pulled-down rail allows the board to change direction without having to muscle it and also cuts nicely across steep sections of the wave face. Minimal rider feedback is necessary to get this bad boy up and going. You really just need to make it to your feet, and the board will do the rest. The Gerry Glider will make 1ft waves a blast but could potentially be ridden in large surf as well if the surfer is capable of handeling the speed the board generates. Read more →

Natural Fiber Technology is not only made with natural composite reinforcements but its got an amazingly natural feel. Half of the reinforcement by volume on these boards is made from naturally derived fibers. The other half is composed of E glass and the whole lot is layered up and vacuum bagged under pressure to maximize the bond and minimize any excess resin, allowing for an incredible strength to weight ratio. The natural fiber not only replaces a good chunk of what would otherwise be fiberglass but also improves dampening for a predictable, natural response. There is an elegance to the simple aesthetic to the layup that is matched only by its ride.

  1. FUSED CELL EPS CORE (DUAL-CORE W/PU RAILS) // Closed cell EPS core provides more response + flotation
  2. CLEAR HD-EPOXY RESIN // Epoxy resin with high thermo-mechanical performances
  3. HIGH QUALITY E-GLASS FIBERGLASS // E-glass is the industry standard reinforcement as it has
    the most reliable strength and performance of all surf
    glass variations.
  4. NATURAL FIBER REINFORCMENT // Renewable, reliable, resilient, and real smooth


Gerry Lopez grew up in the extraordinary place that was Hawaii in the 1950s and 1960s. He played a part in the shortboard revolution of the late 1960s and early 1970s. He experienced the awe, fear and ultimate satisfaction of finding the tube in the early days at the Pipeline. He traveled for surf throughout the world: to the original surf camp at G-Land, the exotic islands off Sumatra and especially to the magic island of Bali, Indonesia- before it became a popular surf destination. He experienced the beginnings of windsurfing on Maui, the early years of snowboarding and tow-in surfing at Jaws.

Fast forward to today and Gerry is shaping some truly unique boards that keeps his surfing journey moving forward. This collection of boards represents the quiver that he takes around the world to surf the ultimate breaks.
