Thommen Glide 165 LTD (limited)
After several years of focusing strictly on building custom boards, Peter Thommen and Mark Thoms developed a board that stole the hearts of many windsurfers. It instantly became our bestseller.
Soon we found it was hard to keep up with demand. We realized it was time to allow more people into the magic world of the “Gleitwunder”, our planing miracle, and take it to the world’s foremost board manufacturer Cobra in Thailand.
GLIDE (aka Gleitwunder) - THE PLANING MIRACLE.
Ultra fast planning in the lightest of breezes. Super smooth, yet remarkably quick, responsive and maneuverable! There’s no ‘hump’ to overcome. A specific Thommen golden era stretched rocker line and a vee-to-quad-to-tri-concave bottom shape make for a gradual transition from gliding to planning and iron out chop like nothing else. Yet, unlike other “special light wind” boards, the Gleitwunder is efficient and remains truly fun to sail when the wind picks up. The super thin hull concept, combined with a ‘step rail’ design, is forgiving and promoting easy control for all levels of sailors, from beginner to expert. The Glide does not need tall fins and comes with a 34cm and two 12cm thrusters as a standard. A tailored boardbag comes included as we don’t like one-way plastic wrappings.
