The Astro Glider is our modern take on the Keel Fish of the 70's. It is short, fast, and drivey. It has a extra-wide tail outline, combined with modern rocker and concave bottom that help bring out speed and performance, making it a super fun board. Not too boaty, just floaty and fast, this board works great in all kinds of waves, picks up speed easily, and turns with a smooth flow. We also offer this model as a Quad, which adds even more of a modern touch.Order it a little shorter than yourself, about 1" to 1 1/2" wider, and 1/4" thicker than your shortboard.
