The 12’ UltraGlide is an all-around stand-up paddleboard designed to be stable, fast, and maneuverable. I designed these new SUP UltraGlide models as links to my very successful 11’ and 12’ Ultra Glide conventional surfboards. Both these original boards proved over the years to perform superbly in a variety of conditions as well as accommodated a broad spectrum of surfers’ skill levels. These models enjoyed some off-label use as SUPs, but had I known the SUP revolution was right around the corner I certainly would have made them wider and a little thicker! These new 11’ and 12’ UltraGlide SUP models are the result of 60+ years of experience on the surfboard design side of things, combined with years of experience designing, shaping, paddling, and riding stand-up paddleboards. Fins: Single 10” center box.

Styles:
C4H307-GRN GREEN
C4H307-SMN SALMON

Technology

C4 Waterman’s new FeatherCore Composite line of SUPs is based on the rigorous refinement of the foam sandwich/composite structures to find the construction that best suits the unique needs of the next generation of high- performance stand-up paddleboards.

Our testing has found that deck and bottom wood veneer laminates provide the lightest, strongest, least expensive ‘skin’ to complement our featherlight EPS-cored SUPs. These very thin veneer sheets are sandwiched between successive layers of fiberglass and epoxy resin and then pressure molded around the EPS core. This creates a sort of monocoque fuselage, much like an aircraft, in which the skin of the surfboard in effect becomes the stringer or stiffener. We have also changed the finish on our new range of boards to a classic gloss resin surfboard-style finish—no more chipping!
